On the afternoon of November 22, The Fields Institute will be hosting an information session for Ontario universities to display information on their graduate programs in mathematics, statistics and some computer science programs. As part of the day's activities there will be two keynote lectures aimed at undergraduate students in the mathematical sciences.
Please join us for this event and this opportunity to talk to representatives from the various university graduate programs.
All are welcome.

We are making a table (and poster board if requested) available to each university.
