The LMS Annual Review 2010–2011 contains highlights of LMS activities during 2010–2011 principally in Funding the Advancement of Mathematical Knowledge, Celebrating Mathematical Achievements, Publishing and Disseminating Mathematical Knowledge, and Advancing and Promoting Mathematics.
The Society has continued to develop areas of strategic priority with the beginnings of a new membership drive (helping to ensure the Society’s future), funding to encourage independent activities by young researchers, and a major investment to develop the Society’s new website, which provides an invaluable communication tool for LMS members, and the wider mathematics community.
Several major issues have affected both research and higher education in 2010–2011 including the International Review of the Mathematical Sciences 2010, Impact and the 2014 REF, cuts in science funding and changes to EPSRC policy. The Society has been prominent in engaging with the relevant organisations on these issues both alone and as part of the Council for the Mathematical Sciences (CMS).
