Fields Institute Graduate School Information Day

Saturday, November 5, 2005

On the afternoon of November 5, The Fields Institute will be hosting an information session for 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. Universities who wish to participate, and who have not already contacted The Fields Institute to confirm their participation should do so by sending an e-mail to the address listed below. Universities with several departments are asked to cooperate on using the space.
Fields can assist Universities with renting a van or bus to facilitate student travel for the afternoon, to request assistance please contact programs(PUT_AT_SIGN_HERE)
