CRM Distinguished Lectures in Applied Mathematics

Building on the success of existing annual series of distinguished lectures (the Aisenstadt Chairs and Nirenberg Lectures in Geometric Analysis), the CRM is pleased to announce a new annual series: The CRM Distinguished Lectures in Applied Mathematics.

This lecture series will be held in the spring and will bring to the CRM up to two speakers per year. The lectures will be devoted to a different theme each year. Upcoming themes are:

  • Mathematical biology in 2024.
  • Numerical analysis in 2025.
  • Statistical science of space and time in 2026.

The first lectures series is planned during the week of April 29, 2024. The speakers are Ruth Baker of the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford and Alison Hill of the Institute for Computational Medicine and Infectious Disease Dynamics Group of Johns Hopkins University.

Members of the initial scientific committee will have two- or three-year terms in order to ensure continuity in the organizing committee. Subsequent committee members will hold three-year terms, and should represent a diversity of interests and departments/universities.

The current scientific committee is composed of:

  • Morgan Craig (Université de Montréal), 2022-2024
  • Wing Hong Félix Kwok (Université Laval), 2022-2024
  • Erica Moodie (McGill University), 2022-2025
  • Jean-Christophe Nave (McGill University), 2022-2025
