A Science Fair of a Higher Kind
Canadas Brightest Minds to Meet in Winnipeg May 31-June 3 to Unveil How Math is Being Used in Innovative Projects that are Impacting Canadians, Businesses
Winnpeg, Manitoba May 29, 2007 From improving surveillance technology to prevent terrorist attacks, and providing insight into diseases such as Diabetes and Alzheimers so patients receive better treatment, to determining the best traffic routes for ambulances, and developing innovative solutions to protect personal computers from viruses, to controlling epidemics such as pandemic flu and West Nile Virus, some of Canadas brightest minds will meet in Winnipeg this week to showcase research excellence in math that is helping to shape the future for Canadians.
WHAT: CMS-MITACS Joint 2007 Conference
(Canadian Mathematical Society - Mathematics of Information Technology and Complex Systems)
WHEN: May 31 June 3, 2007
WHERE: Delta Hotel Winnipeg, 350 St. Mary Avenue
Math is no longer just about cranking out numbers in a classroom and this event will demonstrate how far the field of mathematical sciences has come from the academic world into the real world, said Arvind Gupta, Scientific Director of MITACS, anational research network that brings together industry and academia in a collaborative effort to solve large-scale problems, and co-organizer of the conference. More and more organizations and businesses are adding mathematical experts to their research teams to come up with solutions to large-scale problems that other disciplines may not be able to solve.
Canadian mathematicians, for example, have made great strides in the following areas:
Controlling the spread of epidemics: A team of mathematics experts, led by Dr. Jianhong Wu of York University, is working with Canadas Public Health Agency on using mathematical modelling to develop procedures to control and manage the spread of diseases such as pandemic flu, West Nile Virus and avian influenza.
Improving video surveillance: Project leader Dr. Mark Coates of McGill University is leading a team which is developing algorithms to enable networks of security cameras to automatically select the most critical camera shots to be viewed by security personnel, helping to protect buildings or communities against terrorism or other threats.
Unlocking secrets behind Alzheimers and Diabetes: Dr. Leah Keshet of the University of British Columbia and her team are using mathematical modelling to decipher the complex processes within the human body that cause disease, with a goal to aid in the development of new drugs.
Optimizing transportation routes: Dr. Binay Bhattacharya of Simon Fraser University is using computational geometry to help emergency vehicles and delivery companies determine the best driving routes within cities, taking into account traffic flow, accidents and the system of roads.
Strengthening information security: Dr. Paul van Oorschot of Carleton University is leading a MITACS project which uses new techniques to detect malicious computer network activity, including worms and viruses, and to prevent their propagation.
In addition to a showcase of some of the most innovative uses of math in Canada, highlights of the CMS-MITACS Joint 2007 Conference include:
A special session on Mathematics Education: Researchers, teachers and graduate students will discuss new and innovative programs, and teaching tools, to help students at all levels develop an appreciation for math.
Poster presentations by graduate students on their mathematical sciences research and discoveries, including such topics as: a new wireless communication technology for emergency responders; the creation of a form of green energy called syngas, developed from farm materials, such as straw; furthering our understanding of Cyclical Thrombocytopenia, a blood disease that causes major fluctuations of platelets in patients; and much more.
In recognition of their significant contributions in mathematics, the CMS Jeffery-Williams Prize will be awarded to Dr. Nassif Ghoussoub of the University of British Columbia and the CMS Krieger-Nelson Prize will be awarded to Dr. Pauline van den Driessche of the University of Victoria. In addition, the CMS Prize for Excellence in Teaching will be presented to Dr. Brian Forrest of the University of Waterloo in recognition of his outstanding contribution to mathematics education.
"These annual conferences provide an exciting opportunity to explore the latest developments in mathematical research and education," said Dr. Tom Salisbury of York University, President of the Canadian Mathematical Society. "They offer a unique chance to celebrate some outstanding achievements by Canadian mathematicians."
Media are invited to attend the CMS-MITACS Joint 2007 Conference at the Delta Hotel Winnipeg. Interview and photo opportunities will be available. For the complete schedule, visit HYPERLINK "http://www.cms.math.ca/Events/summer07/" www.cms.math.ca/Events/summer07/.
About MITACS
MITACS ( HYPERLINK "http://www.mitacs.ca" www.mitacs.ca) is a Network of Centres of Excellence (NCE) for the mathematical sciences hosted by Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC. The only Canadian organization of its kind, it focuses on developing mathematical solutions in five of the economys fastest growing sectors: biomedical and health, environment and natural resources, information processing, risk and finance and communication, networks and security. Each MITACS research project partners academic scientists and their graduate students from universities across the country with Canadian organizations.
About CMS
Founded in 1945, the Canadian Mathematical Society is the main national organization whose goal is to promote and advance the discovery, learning, and application of mathematics. The Society's activities cover the whole spectrum of mathematics: scientific meetings and publishing of research material, education at all levels, popularization of mathematics. The education activities include competitions, mathematics camps in all provinces, outreach activities, meetings, etc. The CMS organizes national Fora in mathematical education.
