Funding of up to £7,000 is available to cover fares and accommodation for up to 50 students, travel and accommodation for speakers and subsistence for participants including a social event.
Expressions of interest should be short (max. one A4 side in length) and include:
• Confirmation of support from the department
• Reasons for wanting to host the LMS Prospects in Mathematics Meeting
• A provisional list of speakers should be included. Speakers should be representative of the UK research landscape both in geographical terms and in scientific terms.
• Speakers from under-represented groups should be included and women speakers should account for at least 40% of the invited speakers.
Confirmation that prospective organisers have read and understood the terms and conditions in the Guidelines for Organisers
Expressions of Interest should be sent to Chris Parker (Chair of the Prospects in Mathematics Steering Group) (email@example.com
All Expressions of Interest will be considered by the Prospects in Mathematics Steering Group, who will recommend a short-list to the LMS Early Career Research Committee.
Short-listed applicants will then be invited to submit a grant application to the LMS Early Career Research Committee for funding.
Before submitting: Organisers are welcome to discuss informally their ideas with the Chris Parker (Chair of the Prospects in Mathematics Steering Group) (firstname.lastname@example.org)
