Call for Participation (proposals due July 18)
Call for Creative Works (submissions due September 22)

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!
