LMS Mathematical Symposia

 

The Society facilitates the organisation of the LMS Mathematical Symposia (formally the LMS-Durham Symposia). Proposals are approved by the Society’s Research Grants Committee after consideration of referees’ reports.

The Symposia began in Durham in 1974, and ran annually from 1974 - 2019.  The Symposia became an established and recognised series of international research meetings that provide an excellent opportunity to explore an area of research in depth, to learn of new developments, and to instigate links between different branches. The format is designed to allow substantial time for interaction and research. The meetings are by invitation only and will be held in August, usually lasting for 5 days, with up to 50 participants, roughly half of whom will come from the UK.

 

LMS MATHEMATICAL SYMPOSIUM BATH 2020 - CALL FOR ORGANISERS
The London Mathematical Society is pleased to announce its Call for Organisers to join the Scientific Committee for the next LMS Mathematical Symposium to be held at the University of Bath in 2020 on the topic of Mathematics of Machine Learning. 
 
The Scientific Committee will comprise a group of Scientific Organisers alongside representatives from the Department of Mathematical Sciences and the Institute for Mathematical Innovation at the University of Bath and the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS), who will provide core funding for the Symposium. 
 
The Scientific Committee will be responsible for designing the workshop programme, including selecting and inviting speakers. The Symposium will be take place in the first week of August 2020. It is followed by a research incubator on the topic of Mathematics of Machine Learning, funded by the EPSRC and organised from Bath.  
 
Formerly known as the LMS-Durham Symposia, the LMS Mathematical Symposia will be held at the University of Bath in 2020. The Symposia are an established and recognised series of international research meetings, since their foundation in 1974, that provide an excellent opportunity to explore an area of research in depth, to learn of new developments, and to instigate links between different branches. 
 
Prospective organisers who would like to join the Scientific Committee should send a brief CV (max. 2 pages) and a covering letter outlining their experience in organising conferences to the Research Grants Committee (Grants@lms.ac.uk) by 15 September 2019.
 
The Research Grants Committee will consider all Expressions of Interests to join the Scientific Committee in September with the final Scientific Committee confirmed in October 2019.
 
If you have any queries, please email grants@lms.ac.uk.
 
Additional sources of funding

Current and prospective organisers may also consider applying for additional sources of funding e.g. the Clay Mathematics Institute Enhancement and Partnership Programme.
