Mathematics & Statistics Division

Every fall since 1978, the Mathematics & Statistics Division has held a conference designed specifically to attract the interest of undergraduate students.

Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science (MSCS) Conference

This year’s Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science (MSCS) Conference will be held at University of Prince Edward Island, located in Charlottetown (PEI), on October 13 and October 14, 2023.

The deadline for undergraduate abstract submissions is October 7, 2023.

Keynote invited speakers include:

  • Field Lecture: Joanna Mills Flemming (Dalhousie University, Halifax)
  • Sedgwick Lecture: Kathleen Fraser (Carleton University; National Research Council)
  • Blundon Lecture: Franklin Mendivil (Acadia University, Wolfville)


The conference will also feature the annual Computer Science Programming Competition and the Mathematics Problem Solving Competition.

More information can be found on the MSCS 2023 conference website.

“The conference aims to facilitate better interaction between members of the academic, research, and industrial community in Atlantic Canada having an interest in solving and analyzing problems in mathematics, statistics and computer science.”

Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science conference winner 2019

Thanks to the support of our generous conference sponsors, each year Mathematics & Statistics recognizes the achievements of some of Atlantic Canada’s top undergraduate and graduate MSCS students through a variety of awards.


The Mathematics & Statistics Division representatives include mathematicians and statisticians from across the Atlantic region.

Our annual conference, held jointly with Computer Science, is designed to attract the attention of undergraduate students, and provides a venue at which students and faculty can network, present research and share ideas. The conference features plenary talks in both mathematics (the Blundon lecture) and statistics (the Fields lecture). The Blundon lecture is named for Professor W.J. Blundon, the first head of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Memorial University of Newfoundland, who was a prominent figure in mathematics and educational circles in Atlantic Canada for many years. The conference also hosts a problem-solving competition for teams of undergraduate students from Atlantic Canadian universities.

We are also interested in issues related to mathematics education, including curriculum and pedagogy in schools and universities.
