CECM at ten: an open discussion

"Open Discussion: the Future of CECM"

We are about to embark on a renovation and reorganization of CECM space and would like to discuss the implications and get feedback while we are still in the design stage. This modernization will have considerable impact on the users of the facility.

The CECM was proposed in 1992 and opened in 1993. The original mandate of CECM, ``to explore and promote the interplay of conventional mathematics with modern computation and communication in the mathematical sciences'', has been converted into robust and forward looking (highly collaborative) research projects, CFI funding for a high-performance mathematical computing facility, and thriving industrial partnerships. However needs and usage are clearly changing and we wish to discuss the implications of this.
