We invite all research postgraduate students, PhD students and postdocs within any mathematics discipline to attend the Young Researchers in Mathematics (YRM) conference 2017, the UK’s largest annual mathematics conference run for postgraduates, by postgraduates.  This year the University of Kent, Canterbury (situated just an hour from London) will be hosting the event which takes place between the 1st and 4th August.

We have the pleasure to announce plenary talks from the following speakers:

  • Professor Elizabeth Mansfield (Kent),
  • Dr Martina Balagovic (Newcastle),
  • Professor Keith Ball (Warwick)

There will also be keynote talks from distinguished academics in diverse areas of mathematics, including algebra, functional analysis, mathematical physics, number theory, integrable systems, mathematical modelling, group theory, geometry and topology. As well as the plenary and keynote talks, there will also be a public talk, given by Professor Paul Sutcliffe (Durham), and several workshops.

We invite and encourage every attendee to contribute a 20 minute talk on their research and/or participate in the poster competition in the relaxed atmosphere of the conference.

The registration fee is £60 and includes refreshments at the breaks, lunch every day, and the conference dinner. Thanks to the LMS we are pleased to announce a two-for-one deal for any postgraduate who attends both the YRM 2017 and the British Mathematical Colloquium (BMC) in Durham. Participants of both conferences will have their BMC registration fee reimbursed.  Thanks to the EMS we also have limited funds to help with the travel costs of students travelling from Scottish universities to attend YRM 2017. These funds are awarded on a first come, first served basis.

For more information, as well as speakers, scheduling and how to register, please visit www.youngresearchersinmathematics.co.uk.  Registration closes 30th June.

The conference is supported by the following organisations: SIAM-UKIE, LMS, Heilbronn Institute, NAG, EMS, Maple, ThinkTank Maths, and Kent Graduate School.
