This online series is held twice annually (October/November and February/March) and features distinguished mathematical speakers from around the world. The talks are 30-50 minutes in length, followed by a leisurely Q&A session about the talk and then an hour for a Roundtable discussion about the future directions in mathematics and what opportunities are available to prospective PhD students.
The goal is to encourage undergraduates in the mathematical sciences to consider engaging in research degrees in mathematics by:
- providing an overview of possible avenues of research from the point of view of leaders in the field,
- discussing how undergraduates can take the next steps towards applying for a postgraduate degree,
- offering insights to the applications and funding processes,
- hearing from current Masters and/or PhD students,
- answering questions from undergraduates who are considering applying for a postgraduate degree after they have completed their current studies.
On behalf of the London Mathematical Society and the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences we are pleased to invite you to attend the 2023-24 talks in the ICMS-LMS Undergraduate Series: Opportunities and directions in modern mathematics.
2. Date tbc: 4.00 - 6.00pm (BST), hosted online by the ICMS.
Heather Harrington (Oxford)
