SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES 

February 25, 2020  
The CMS Committee for Women in Mathematics, in cooperation with
the Fields Institute, is organizing a workshop for junior women
(graduate students and postdoctoral fellows) in the mathematical
sciences at Canadian universities. The workshop will take
place on December 7 and 8, 2006. The workshop is just prior
to the CMS Winter 2006 Meeting, and participants are encouraged
to stay in Toronto to attend that meeting. All women in the mathematical
sciences at Canadian universities are invited to apply. Format
