6. Call for Membership and Renewal
Become a CAIMS/SCMAI member now! The world needs applied mathematicians, now more so than ever before. As applied mathematicians we influence policy, economy, scientific developments, public health and communication. As a group we can be most effective if we are organized in societies and representative groups, such that we can speak with one voice and make our insights heard. The Canadian Applied and Industrial Mathematics Society – Societé Canadienne de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles has represented the Canadian applied and industrial mathematical community for several decades, and it has enabled us to have impact and opportunities, which we could have never achieved individually.
A membership of CAIMS comes with many benefits, such as
- Being part of a friendly, open, and vibrant applied math community
- Access to free open access publication through MSI (Mathematics in Science and Industry)
- Access to publishing in the CMS/CAIMS Book Series of Springer.
- Access to scientific blogs and opportunity to write a blog yourself
- Priority registration for the CAIMS Annual Meeting
- Access to targeted conferences such as the BIRS Innovation and Career HUB, the CAIMS/BIRS Communication workshops, the first and second CAIMS/PIMS Coronavirus modelling conferences, etc.
- Access to highly prestigious research awards of the society.
And all this for just $80 CAD per year for an individual membership. Become a member today!
Thomas Hillen (President of CAIMS)
