<br>
<br>
<b> REGISTRATION PROCEDURES
<br>
</b>
<br>
The CMO is open only to students who have received a direct invitation from the Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS). The CMS will provide registration information to schools with eligible students in early March. Teachers must complete and submit the registration form with each student by March 18, 2016. Once registration is completed, the CMS will mail the competition kit directly to the exam proctoring official.

Robinson Award for his paper <span style="font-style: italic;">Octonion algebras over rings are not determined by their norms </span>(Canad. Math. Bull. Vol. 57 (2), 2014 pp. 303–309). The award is given out to recognize outstanding contributions to the Canadian Journal of Mathematics (CJM) or the Canadian Mathematical Bulletin (CMB). Gille’s paper is an example of how powerful abstract techniques in one area of mathematics can be used to decisively settle long-standing problems in another area.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/CanadianMathCommunityNews/~4/Ttew4ANzT6c" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>https://cms.math.ca/News/item/152/enMon, 10 Aug 2015 00:00 EDThttps://cms.math.ca/MediaReleases/2015/gdb-award.html
