We are holding another Maple Conference this year, and I am pleased to announce that we have just opened the Call for Participation!

This year’s conference will be held Nov. 2 – Nov. 3, 2022. It will be a free virtual event again this year, and it will be an excellent opportunity to meet other members of the Maple community and share your work.

We are inviting submissions of presentation proposals on a range of topics related to Maple, including Maple in education, algorithms and software, and applications. We also encourage submission of proposals related to Maple Learn. This year, we are not requiring recorded videos, and we hope to see more interaction between presenters and audience members in our live sessions.

You can find more information about the themes of the conference and how to submit a presentation proposal at the Call for Participation page. Proposals are due July 18, 2022.

Presenters will have the option to submit papers and articles to a special Maple Conference issue of the Maple Transactions journal after the conference.

Registration for attending the conference will open in June. We will also be featuring an art gallery again at the conference. Watch for further announcements in the coming weeks.

I sincerely hope that all of you here in the Maple Primes community will consider joining us for this event, whether as a presenter or attendee!

Happy Lunar New Year to everyone here in the MaplePrimes community, as we enter the Year of the Tiger! There are different traditions followed in the many countries around the world where the Lunar New Year is celebrated. In my own Canadian-Chinese family, we usually cook a big meal and share with family members and friends. 

The pandemic has made this year's celebration more muted, but I did cook a large batch of our favourite dumplings and made up several packages to take to friends. That led to the question: how many ways can I arrange 10 dumplings on a plate from the 3 kinds I made? Of course, that called for a Maple Learn document to compute the answer: A Counting Problem: Selecting Dumplings
 


I was also interested in understanding the formula used in this computation, and so I created a second document showing a special case of this problem. By moving the sliders around, you can see how the "Stars and Bars" method for counting the ways one can choose a number of items from distinct bins works: Visualization the Stars and Bars Method.

I hope you enjoy trying out these documents and I wish everyone good health, happiness and prosperity in the coming year!

I am happy to announce that registration for Maple Conference 2021, to be held Nov. 2-5, is now open! The event is once again virtual and free this year. On our home page, you can find information about our keynote presentations. Our keynote speakers this year are Dr. Veselin Jungic, Dr. Evelyne Hubert and Dr. Laurent Bernardin.

The Agenda & Event Format page contains preliminary information about the event and will be updated as the agenda develops. This page describes two add-on workshops that are also free of charge: "Maple Programming: Beyond the Basics" and "Advanced Problem Solving with Regular Chains".

You can register for both the conference and the add-on workshops here: Maple Conference 2021. I hope to see you all in November!

The deadline to submit a presentation proposal for the Maple Conference 2021, to be held Nov. 2-5, 2021, has been extended to June 13, 2021.

We invite submissions of proposals for presentations on a range of topics related to Maple, including Maple in education, algorithms and software, and applications. All presenters will be given the option of submitting a full paper, which will undergo peer review, and if accepted, be included in the conference proceedings.

More about the themes of the conference, how to submit a presentation proposal, and the program committee can be found here: Call for Presentations.

We hope to see you at Maple Conference 2021!

This year’s conference will be held Nov. 2 – Nov. 5, 2021. It will be a free virtual event again this year, making it an excellent opportunity to share your Maple-related work with others without the expenses and inconveniences of travel.
