1. CAIMS/SCMAI Election Results

The CAIMS elections ended on April 25 2021. The majority for the President Elect position fell on Dr. Sue Ann Campbell (U Waterloo). Congratulations Sue Ann, and welcome to the team!  A big thank you to both candidates for running in this election.

In addition, CAIMS/SCMAI welcomes the new

  • CAIMS/SCMAI Secretary: Dr. Christina Christara (U Toronto)
  • CAIMS/SCMAI Communication Officer: Dr. Morgan Craig (U Montreal)
  • CAIMS/SCMAI Board Member:   Dr. Alex Alvarez (U PEI)

 


2. Effective Communications Skills for Applied Mathematicians Workshop

Applications still being accepted!

English Workshop

 

CAIMS and BIRS are proud to announce the Effective Communication Skills for Applied Mathematicians (ECSAM) workshop. ECSAM is a series of live online modules for applied mathematicians, statisticians, and data scientists looking to hone their ability to communicate with the general public via live interviews, op eds, blogs, or expert witness, etc. Shari Graydon of Informed Opinions is the keynote workshop leader.

 

ECSAM takes place virtually with 5 two-day modules in May and June 2021. All modules run 9AM – 12PM (PST).

May 6 – 7  Why communicate with non-scientists, and why me?

May 13 – 14 Effective Communication Principles: Communicating Mathematics to the Lay Audience

May 20 – 21 Writing Compelling Commentary

May 27 – 28 Becoming more Effective in Media Interviews 

June 3 – 4 When things get controversial: Expert communication strategies!

 

Applications for ECSAM are open from now until each module date, though registration a few days ahead of time allows for completion of pre-reading and pre-surveys. Interested applicants can apply here. Registration is priced per module: $30 for students, $50 for faculty.  If you have questions about the program please e-mail birs-facilitator@birs.ca

 

French Workshop

 

Si les scientifiques ne prennent pas la parole, qui le fera?

L’apport des mathématicien.ne.s est attendu dans les médias et pour s’outiller davantage, nous offrons en mai des séances de formation en ligne en français les jeudis et les vendredis matins (heure de l’Est) en collaboration avec le CAIMS-SCMAI et le BIRS qui offrent aussi des séances de formation en anglais les jeudis et les vendredis après-midi (pour infos: ECSAM.ca). Nous avons conçu une formation originale qui s’adresse aux mathématicien.ne.s appliqué.es en particulier, mais aussi à toute la communauté qui partage les mêmes défis en matière de communications efficaces, les statisticiens et les spécialistes en sciences des données, professeur.res, postdoctorants.es, étudiant.e.s diplômés.es.

Que ce soit pour un seul ou l’ensemble des modules, vous êtes invité.e.s à remplir le formulaire ci-dessous:
