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.


Call for Proposals for the LMS Mathematical Symposia in 2020 - To Open Soon

The Call for Proposals for the LMS Mathematical Symposia in 2020 will open shortly. Informal queries may be sent to the Grants Team (Grants@lms.ac.uk).

Enqiuries should be made to the Chair of the Research Grants Committee, Professor Andrew Dancer (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.
