Call for Education Sessions

2023 CMS Winter Meeting

Call for Scientific Sessions

The Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS) welcomes and invites education session proposals for the 2023 CMS Winter Meeting in Montréal from December 1-4, 2023.

The education session proposals will be selected by the CMS Meeting Education Session Committee, which will also schedule the accepted sessions, in communication with their co-organizers.

Proposals should include: 

(1) Names, affiliations, and contact information for all session co-organizers. Early career researchers are welcomed to propose sessions.

(2) A title and brief description of the topic and purpose of the session. This should include a brief paragraph of the subject. 

(3) Two to three sentence summary that will be posted on the CMS Meeting website if your proposal is selected.

(4) Indicate the number of time blocks needed. A block can be between 1 and 3 hours in length.

(5) A list of confirmed speakers who are approached before submitting the proposal. An inclusive and diverse set of speakers is highly encouraged.

(6) The structure of your session. Traditionally, each presenter gets 20 minutes to talk, 5 minutes of Q&A, and a 5-minute buffer for transition. We are open to different formats as well, such as a panel, interactive session/workshop, 10-minute lightning talks, etc.

Coming soon - Open Call for Abstracts: The CMS will continue the open abstract submission process that was recently introduced to support session organizers in their important work and in their efforts towards inclusivity and diversity.

The CMS kindly asks session organizers to consider all eligible abstract submissions for their session, as up to 30 speakers per session can be accommodated.

The education sessions will take place from December 2-4, 2023. 


In parallel to the Scientific Session Proposals, there will be two rounds of submissions. Proposals submitted by Monday, July 31, 2023 will be considered in the first round, with responses early in August. The deadline for the second round will be  September 30, 2023.


Please send your education session proposals (and questions) to:
