Notice of change under PIMS Travel Support to BIRS

In years past, PIMS committed substantial financial resources to offset the cost of travel to the Banff International Research Station, and to help facilitate the participation of young Canadian mathematicians in the BIRS scientific programme.

This is to inform the Canadian scientific community that in view of the success of BIRS in recent years, and the need to redirect funds to other under-funded initiatives, PIMS is no longer be able to offer travel support to BIRS conferences. This change took effect on April 1, 2008.
