The LMS Computer Science Colloquium is an annual day of themed talks on a topical issue at the interface of mathematics and computer science, usually held in November at De Morgan House, London. It is organised by the LMS Computer Science Committee. The event is aimed at PhD students and post-docs, although others are welcome to attend. The event is free for students and £5 for others, which is payable on the day.
