The Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science, Science Atlantic Conference is an annual regional event and will be hosted virtually by St. Francis Xavier University, October 22nd to 24th. This year Science Atlantic is celebrating its 60th anniversary as an organization and this annual conference, designed specifically to attract the interest of undergraduate students, dates back to 1978.

The conference provides a venue at which students and faculty can network, present research and share ideas and features two competitions (mathematics and computer science), undergraduate research talks and three named keynote lectures. The Blundon lecture (mathematics), the Fields lecture (statistics) and the Sedgwick lecture (computer science) are 50 minutes each and are designed to engage and educate the undergraduate audience on these fields and how they interact.

This year the competitions will be held in several remote locations on Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning will be highlighted by undergraduate research talks and plenary speakers. Graduate research talks and the award ceremony will take place on Sunday morning.
