1. Seminar Series on Quantitative and Computational Biology

The Quantitative and Computational Biology Seminar series serves to bring together researchers in Biology, Medicine, Pharmacy, Informatics, Mathematics, and Statistics to share new results and establish collaborations. Talks are held virtually from 12pm-1pm Eastern every first Wednesday of the month. The next seminar will be held *October 6*:

Speaker: Nicole Mideo, University of Toronto
Title: Understanding variation in malaria infection dynamics

Information on this and future talks can be found at

2. CMO-BIRS Workshop September 26 – October 1, 2021 (virtual)

A virtual CMO-BIRS Workshop on
Modeling and Computational Approaches to Individual and Collective Cell
Movement in Complex Environments is taking place
September 26-October 1, 2021.
Organized by H. Othmer and T. Hillen,
Participation is still possible, see here:

3. Science and Industry, call for paper submissions

We invite high quality papers in Applied and Industrial Mathematics for our in-house journal: Mathematics in Science and Industry (MSI).
Proposals for Special Issues are also welcome.
MSI is open access and free for authors until the end of 2022.

For details see here:

4. Do you want to organize a CAIMS/SCMAI annual meeting?

Colleagues who wish to organize a CAIMS/SCMAI annual meeting some time in the next few years, please express your interest by e-mail to and

5. GAP connector renewal

CAIMS/SCMAI has launched the GAP Connector,
a listing of upper year PhD students and postdoctoral fellows studying at Canadian Universities.

This listing is to be renewed every year.

For students and postdocs:

The GAP Connector enables young researchers to make new contacts to established groups in their area, get seminar talk invitations, conference invitations, and informal job interviews.
If you have not signed, check it out and sign up today.
If you have signed in the past, please re-sign to renew your listing.

For faculty and seminar / conference / workshop organizers:

We invite you to reference the GAP Connector listings to seek out junior researchers in your field and learn about the exciting research they are doing by inviting them to participate in upcoming events.

6. CAIMS/SCMAI Award Nominations will open soon

Calls for nominations usually open in late November with a deadline for submissions on the following January 31st. Start preparing now.
Consider nominating someone for one of our prizes and awards.

Arthur-Beaumont Distinguished Service Award
CAIMS-Fields Industrial Mathematics Prize
CAIMS/PIMS Early Career Award
CAIMS-SCMAI Research Prize
