Poster Competition

Poster Information

The SFU Mathematics Department invites undergraduate and graduate research students to participate in the 2015 SFU Symposium on Mathematics and Computation Poster Competition. Postdocs and faculty may also present a poster but are not eligible for the competition.

The only requirement is that the poster has mathematics in it. It may be applied, pure, computational or experimental mathematics. If you have already prepared a poster for a presentation at another scientific meeting this year, and you would like to present it to members of the Department, this is an appropriate venue. If you wish to present a computer demo this is also possible.


Posters will be judged in two catergories - graduate and undergraduate - and there will be prizes for the winner and best runner up. Judging will be based on both content and presentation.

Submission Details

Poster titles must be submitted via the online registration form by July 31st, 2015. Presenters are responsible for printing their own poster.

Display Details

The posters will be displayed in the IRMACS Centre atrium. Poster presenters can set up their posters as early as 9:00am on August 6th, 2015. The poster and demo session will take place from 11:15am to 1:15pm. Awards will be made at 4:30pm, followed by a presentation of the winning undergraduate and winning graduate poster.
