The CRM, the Fields Institute, and PIMS have been awarded a new grant by
NSERC this summer. This grant, called the Institutes Innovation Platform
(IIP), will be used to foster new collaborations between companies and
academic researchers in the mathematical sciences. In order to obtain some
help in reaching this goal, the CRM has created an Advisory Committee for
the Institutes Innovation Platform (ACIIP), including Dr. Michel Carreau
(Director, Renewable Power, Hatch), Dr. Denis Faubert (President and CEO,
CRIAQ), Mr. Pierre Trudeau (Vice-President, Business Development, GIRO),
and Dr. Roxana Zangor (Manager, Product Reliability and Safety, Pratt &
Whitney Canada). The CRM has also hired Dr. Stéphane Rouillon as
partnerships development officer. Dr. Rouillon will support the outreach
of the CRM in industrial mathematics, especially those projects that are
related to the IIP. He holds a bachelor's degree in physical engineering,
a master's degree in fluid mechanics, and a Ph.D. in operations research
(all degrees from the École Polytechnique de Montréal). Dr. Rouillon has
worked in industry for many years, in particular for SNC Lavalin, and
carried out several projects in the popularization of science and

The objective of this workshop is to take stock of new developments in copula modeling, to bring together some of the most active researchers in the field, and to identify the current challenges in dependence modeling faced in areas such as economics, health sciences, and the environment, where the copula approach to modeling is emerging. | Read more
CRM-ISM postdoctoral fellowships in all fields of research in which the CRM and the ISM are actively involved are awarded to promising researchers who have recently obtained or expect to obtain a Ph.D. in the mathematical sciences. The deadline for the CRM-ISM postdoctoral fellowships is December 12th, 2014. | Read more | Register
The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) has awarded a grant of $1.15 million per year to the Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM) for a five-year period starting in 2014. This award was made within the framework of the first competition of the CTRSMS Program (Collaborative and Thematic Resources Support in Mathematics and Statistics). | Read more
To Fang Yao, for his foundational, influential and trail-blazing research in the field of functional data analysis; for exploring fruitful connections between longitudinal and functional data, and for demonstrating ways in which tools from the more traditional fields of nonparametric statistics can be successfully leveraged in FDA research. | Read more
The Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) and the Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM) are pleased to announce that the 2014 CAP-CRM Prize In Theoretical And Mathematical Physics is awarded to Prof. Mark Van Raamsdonk, University of British Columbia, for his highly original, influential contributions to several areas of theoretical physics, including string theory, quantum field theory, and quantum gravity. | Read more
The Anti-de-Sitter/Conformal Field Theory (AdS/CFT) correspondence has been dominating research in theoretical high-energy physics for the last 15 years. It posits an exact quantum equivalence between string theory as a theory of quantum gravity on negatively curved space-times and certain conformal quantum field theories defined on the boundary of these space-times. | Read more
Both classical and central to modern mathematics, mathematical analysis lies at the core of our understanding of any continuous system. The mathematical analysis laboratory has undertaken in-depth studies of dynamical systems, partial differential equations and spectra of operators.
The objective of CAMBAM (Center for Applied Mathematics in Bioscience and Medicine) is the application of mathematics to address biological challenges across all levels of biological organisation ranging from the molecular/genetic through single cell and whole organ physiology to population and ecosystem dynamics.
CICMA is an inter-university research center officially established in 1989. Its research activities are concentrated on number theory, arithmetic geometry, computational algebra and sporadic finite groups.
GIREF gathers researchers and research groups from several academic institutions in order to facilitate research, development, training of specialists and interaction with the industrial circles in the field of modeling an numeric simulation.
As a result of state-of-the-art computational resources, it has become possible to simulate problems and figure solutions that we only dreamed of a decade ago. This has been a driving force in the creation of this laboratory.
The work of PhysNum is focused on cerebral imaging and its method. Started within a collaboration with INSERM (Hôpital Pitié-Salpêtrière) and the Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal, this trend took shape during the study of reconstruction signals in magnetoencephalographic problems.
Probability lab members pursue research in a broad range of areas, spanning theoretical and applied, continuous and discrete probability. A particular focus is on the development and analysis of probabilistic models for real-world phenomena from physics, biology, statistics and computer science.
The Actuarial and Financial Mathematics Laboratory is an inter-university group of researchers focused on the mathematics of actuarial science and finance. Its research activities are concentrated on the applications of probabilistic and statistical techniques to analyze random events with financial impact.
Statistics is central to many endeavours in society. Whether it be through surveys from sampling, clinical trials to study various biomedical treatments or experimental designs in agriculture or industry, statistical methodology can be found everywhere in science. The statistics laboratory rallies a great number of statisticians from Eastern Canada.
