Virtual Success – MSCS 2020

We are happy to share that our first virtual conference was a success!

The 2020 Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science Conference (MSCS) was hosted virtually by SMU on October 31 and November 1. There was a great turnout with 156 attendees, 25 Math contestants, 43 Programming contestants, 19 undergraduate and 6 graduate presentations.

It wouldn’t be a conference without our students being recognized for their hard work. Please take a look at the list of award winners below!

Thank you to St. Mary’s University, the conference organizers and all of those who attended. It wouldn’t have been possible and a great success without you.
