Workshops

BC UMSC has partnered with SFU’s Scientific Study Group (SciProg) to organize a few of the workshops for our participants.

Students will be able to enhance their learning by participating in software programming, introduction to data science, and paper writing workshops throughout the conference. Our workshops will be led by students and professors, and work with softwares such as R, Maple, Python, and Git.

Data Visualization Competition

Following a key note presentation on the principles of data visualization, students will be challenged to produce a visualization from a real-world data set.

Students will be assigned to teams so that they are given a chance to collaborate with peers from different universities and disciplines. Once presentations are assessed by our judges, the winning team will receive a cash prize.


Networking

In addition to formal networking sessions, a variety of engaging and enjoyable activities will take place throughout the conference such as a trivia night, movie night, pub night, and exploratory excursions to downtown Vancouver.

We want to provide undergraduate students in Mathematics and Statistics with an opportunity to meet other students, professors, organizers and industry members who have similar interests and goals. These networking events will help passionate undergraduate students to gain confidence and build connections with fellow peers.
