PRIMA Congress 2022

The 2022 Pacific Rim Mathematical Association Congress will be take place in Vancouver, Canada, between December 4-9, 2022. The fourth meeting will be hosted by the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS).

Every four years, mathematical scientists from around the Pacific Rim converge to discuss the latest developments in Mathematics. The Pacific Rim Mathematical Association (PRIMA) was established to bring a well coordinated and concerted effort among our institutions and countries to stimulate a vibrant and interconnected mathematical community whose activities have an unprecedented impact on our economic, social, and cultural development.

Special Sessions

Early Career Research Showcase

The PRIMA Early Career Researcher’s Showcase is a short session for early career participants (undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral scholars) to highlight their areas of research. This can be done either through the poster session, or a 10 minute presentation.

Research topics are open, but should focus on the presenters area of research. Presentations cannot highlight open or exploratory material. Please fill in the application form with the poster/ talk details. Submissions close June 30th, 2022.
