20th Biennial ACMS Conference: Call for Papers

Redeemer University College will be hosting the 20th Biennial Conference of the Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences. More information on the conference can be found here.

A preliminary call for papers has been posted:

The 20th Biennial ACMS conference will be held at Redeemer University College in Ancaster (a suburb of Hamilton) Ontario, Canada May 27-30, 2015. Details will be posted at www.acmsonline.org/conferences/2015/ACMS_2015_Conference.html

At this time we are accepting presentation proposals for the parallel sessions. Proposals need to include the presenter’s name, presentation title, and a presentation abstract (preferably in Tex/LaTeX if any mathematical symbols are used, not exceeding 250 words). Most presentations are expected to last 15 minutes plus a 5 minute transition time between speakers. A selection of the presentations will be longer: 25 minutes with a 5 minute transition. Please indicate if you would like to be considered for a longer presentation. There will also be a poster session, especially for students. You will be notified at a later date whether your selection is approved.

There will also be some limited opportunities for one or two 45-minute panel sessions. Proposals for panel sessions are welcome, including potential panel members. We will also consider proposals for Birds of a Feather sessions. Send suggestions directly to acms2015@cs.redeemer.ca

We are looking for presentations in both computer science and mathematics. General categories would include (but not necessarily be limited to)

  1. the interaction of faith and discipline
  2. pedagogy
  3. history of the discipline or interesting topics/achievements of the past
  4. society and discipline interaction
  5. current research of general interest (with an audience of primarily non-subdiscipline-experts)

Proposals should be sent to acms2015@cs.redeemer.ca by February 16, 2015.
After that date, proposals will be considered if space remains.
