Welcome to the official website of the Canadian Undergraduate Mathematical Conference (CUMC). The CUMC is the largest conference in North America for undergraduate students in mathematics. The next event will be held from July 10th to July 14th 2013. Université de Montréal, sitting on top of Mount Royal in Montreal, Quebec, will have the honour of welcoming Canadian students from across the country for the twentieth edition of this great conference.
The conference offers a unique opportunity for students to acquire a first exposure to current research in different mathematical fields. Through seminars and social activities, the CUMC also provides venue for students to connect with other students from across Canada – connections students can benefit from throughout their mathematical career. Furthermore, the event seeks to promote different fields within mathematics, and offers a unique opportunity for students to meet active researchers working in applied fields, such as physics, economics, informatics, statistics, engineering, and actuarial science.
The conference brings together more than two hundred students from various academic backgrounds. Each student has the opportunity to present a topic they find interesting. It is a rewarding experience for talented young mathematicians to go beyond the typical undergraduate experience and meet to discuss their common interests with likeminded students. It is a non-competitive event because we believe that such a context best facilitates the exchange of ideas and encourages diversity, which is essential for the development of mathematics across the country.
