XXVth ISM Graduate Student Conference - 2023


The organizing committee of the XXVth Graduate Student Conference of the Institut des Sciences Mathématiques is pleased to welcome you to the Université de Sherbrooke in June 2023! This conference brings together the community of graduate students in mathematics from all of Quebec’s universities for a weekend each year. During the event, participants have the opportunity to attend five plenary sessions, to present their own work if they wish, and to take part in social activities.

On this website you will find information about the plenary sessions, the schedule, accommodation and transportation. You will also find out what's new for this year's event! You can also register and submit and abstract on this website.

Back this year : Student presentations

Graduate students are invited to present their work on a mathematical topic of their choice. Presentations are 20 minutes in length, followed by 10 minutes of questions. You may submit a summary of your presentation in the Submission section once your registration is done.

*Please note that it is not required to give a presentation to participate in the conference.

New this year : Mathematical postcard!

This year, participants are invited to submit posters in postcard format, with the goal of learning more about the projects of our mathematical community. No presentation is attached; we will print the postcards for everyone to see throughout the conference. The postcard should have a short text about mathematical work, and the addition of an image is strongly recommended. There are no format restrictions, but participants are encouraged to use the following LaTeX template.

For inspiration here are some postcard from the NCNGT conference : https://www.ncngt.org/2022-postcards

You can attach your postcard at the time of registration. If it is not completed at the time of registration, you can return to your registration form later by clicking on "My Registration" from the top right icon on the website.

*Postcards are independent of presentations. You can do both (presentation and card), only one of the two (presentation or card), or neither.
