Interdisciplinary Dimension 

@ WLU, Waterloo, ON, Canada 
CSASM is an interdisciplinary seminar series founded in 2004. The series covers all areas of applied, industrial, and financial mathematics; computational physics, chemistry, and biology; mathematical, statistical, and computational models and tools as applied in natural and social sciences, engineering, business and economics, the areas where a substantial progress is possible due to Computational Science and Applied & Statistical Modelling.
The Laurier CSASM is a forum for academics, students, business and industry professionals to exchange ideas in order to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration in the areas of computational science and applied & statistical modelling, and to help train high quality and employable students.
Within the CSASM framework, some seminars are held at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics (LaurierPerimeter Seminar Series)
