CUMC 2018 - Saskatoon

11th - 15th July

Some of our scheduled activities are below. Check back for regular updates!

Opening BBQ – July 11th

There will be an opening barbeque during the evening of Wednesday, July 11th. It will be a great opportunity to meet everyone before the conference takes off, enjoy some good food, and explore the campus.

Synchrotron Tour – July 11th

The U of S is home to the Canadian Light Source, where scientific, synchrotron-based research occurs on a daily basis. Join us on the opening day of the conference to tour the only synchrotron in Canada.

Poster Session – JULY 12TH

We will be hosting a poster session for anyone who wants to present their research or project. It's a great alternative to giving a talk, or the perfect opportunity to expand on your talk in a more relaxed setting. Whether or not you're presenting a poster, this is a good way to connect with other students and explore the posters freely.

Math Movie on Broadway – July 13th

Broadway Avenue is one of the key cultural centres of Saskatoon, where it is the home to quaint shops, charming pubs and restaurants, and several entertainment venues. One such venue is the Broadway Theatre, where we plan to show a math move (TBA) on Friday night. This is also a good chance to explore what this unique district has to offer.”

Closing Banquet – July 14th

The closing banquet will be held on the last night of the conference at the TCU Place events centre in downtown Saskatoon.
