Joint Meeting with the Edinburgh Mathematical Society

Thursday 10th December, 2015 to Friday 11th December, 2015
International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS), 15 South College Street, Edinburgh, Midlothian, EH8 9AA

A key feature of this year's anniversary celebrations are the Society's joint meetings with other mathematical and scientific societies. So far, the Society has held the "De Morgan Day" jointly with the BSHM at De Morgan House in London and a Joint Anniversary Mathematical Weekend with the European Mathematical Society at Birmingham University.

Upcoming joint meetings include 'Einstein's Legacy: Celebrating 100 Years of General Relativity' with the Royal Astronomical Society and The Institute of Physics at QMUL in London from 28-29 November, and 'Mathematical Aspects of Big Data' with the Edinburgh Mathematical Society at the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Edinburgh from 10-11 December.

Further details of 'Mathematical Aspects of Big Data' with the Edinburgh Mathematical Society can be found below:

Mathematical Aspects of Big Data 

Ulrich Krahmer, Peter Richtarik, Colva Roney-Dougal, and Jim Wright

This joint meeting of the London and the Edinburgh Mathematical Societies marks the end of the 150th anniversary celebrations of the former.

The mathematical aspects of the analysis of big data cut across pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics. The invited speakers at this workshop will include a broad range of international experts in mathematics, statistics, and computer science, whose research covers fields that are inspired by, or have applications to, big data analysis.

The workshop is aimed at an audience of general mathematicians. It will cover current trends and developments, and will hopefully enable participants to discover or imagine new connections between their own research and this rapidly growing subject.
