"IRMACS hosts numerous research workshops and conferences, attended by a broad stream of researchers, both within mathematics and from outside areas collaborating with mathematicians at IRMACS and elsewhere. I have participated in several of these workshops in the last few years and I am always impressed by their high level of scholarship and by the expertise of the people attending." - Dr. Michael P.

"I have been a part of the IRMACS community since coming to SFU in the fall of 2006 to pursue a PhD in mathema1cs. While here I have met colleagues and friends, and have become a mathema1cian. Thanks in large part to the research oriented environment of IRMACS, I will be gradua1ng this spring. Thank you IRMACS and happy fourth birthday." - Michael Coons, Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, BC
