The Department regularly hosts mini-courses, bringing together researchers from around the world and students from Atlantic Canada. The AARMS Summer Schools were held at this Department in 2002-2004 and 2011-2013. Since its creation in 2006, the Atlantic Algebra Centre has organized a number of mini-courses on various topics in algebra.
