ILAS 2019: Linear Algebra without Borders The theme primarily refers to the fact that Linear Algebra and its myriad of applications are interwoven in a borderless unit. In the conference, we plan to illustrate this by creating a program whose plenary talks and symposia represent the many scientific “countries” of Linear Algebra, and which invites participant to “visit” them. This theme also refers to the openness and inclusiveness of Linear Algebra to researchers of different backgrounds.

The Ralph G Stanton Scholarship at University of Manitoba

The Ralph G. Stanton Scholarship 
In 1970, Ralph G. Stanton came to the University of Manitoba from York University to launch the Department of Computer Science. This innovative new area of study created excitement on campus when over 600 students signed up for the first freshman course.

The projects developed in the first year included the following: programming languages, algorithmic methods, numerical analysis, social impact of computing, and much more. Ralph G. Stanton also created the first Computer Science co-op program.

The number of undergraduate and graduate students interested in the program continued to grow. As of September 2016, there are 722 students in the Department of Computer Science’s programs. This was a 28% increase from the previous year. The current ratio of students is 85% male and 15% female.

Full course tuition for a domestic student is approximately $5,000 with books and supplies estimated at $2,000. International student tuition rates are substantially hig…

Two new initiatives for ICA membership

Approved at the annual meeting:

- Give a one-year free membership to any student who finishes a PH.D. in Combinatorics. 
- Give the first year of membership free to a new member registering for two years. 

😁

Congratulations at Simon Fraser University

The ICA recently made headlines at SFU, noting that they had a Hall, and Euler, and a Kirkman winner in the department (Jedwab, Mohar, Schmidt)! 

CONGRATULATIONS!

Call for Nominations

Call for Nominations
Euler, Hall, Kirkman, and Stanton Medals for 2018 Honorary Fellowship

Until 31 December 2018, nominations are invited for the 2018 Medals of the ICA, and for Honorary Fellowship in the ICA.

Each medal nomination is to be made by at least two Fellows of the ICA; nominations for Honorary Fellowship are to be made by at least three Fellows of the ICA. Nominees must not be current members of the ICA Council; nominees for the Euler, Hall, and Kirkman medals must not be Honorary Fellows. Further, nominees must meet the eligibility requirements given below. In assessing eligibility, documented career interruptions are taken into account.

Each nomination must include a complete curriculum vitae and publication list and a letter detailing the extent and importance of the nominee’s contributions, addressing the selection criteria. Quotes from nomination letters may be used without attribution in citations, which may appear in the Bulletin of the ICA.

Ron Mullin awarded Stanton Medal

The Stanton Medal honours significant lifetime contributions to promoting
the discipline of combinatorics through advocacy, outreach, service,
teaching and/or mentoring. At most one medal per year is to be awarded,
typically to a Fellow of the ICA. Nominations can be made by at least two
Fellows of the ICA by providing a curriculum vitae for the nominee, and a
letter of nomination that establishes the significance, duration, and
impact of the nominee’s contributions other than research.
