Proposals for future Invited Lecturers


The Call for nominations for the 2023 Invited Lecturer will open later in 2021. The deadline will be 1 February 2022.

Proposers are invited to suggest a topic and Lecturer for the meeting, which they should be prepared to organise at their own institution or a suitable conference centre.

The format of annual Invited Lectures series is:

  • meetings at which a single speaker gives a course of about ten expository lectures, examining some subject in depth;
  • held over a five day period (Monday to Friday) during a University vacation;
  • the meetings are residential and open to all interested. It is intended that the texts of the lectures given in the series shall be published.
  • In addition to full expenses, the lecturer is offered a fee for giving the course.
  •  A grant is given to the host department to support attendance at the lectures. 


Proposals should contain details of
  • the Invited Lecturer, including a short CV
  • the supporting lecturers; organisers should ensure that there is a good gender balance amongst the supporting lecturers.
  • proposed topics
  • the scientific programme
  • dates
  • an outline budget
