Society Meetings

LMS Society Meetings

The LMS runs an annual programme of Society Meetings, including the three regional meetings (Midlands, Northern, South West and South Wales), the Society Meeting held at the annual BMC, the Society Meeting at the quadrenniel ECMs & ICMs and the General Meetings held in London. The Society, Lectures and Meetings Committee oversees the meetings, with the exception of the Mary Cartwright Lecture, for which the Women in Mathematics Committee selects the speakers.

From time to time, the LMS also runs Society Meetings to mark mathematical anniversaries and Joint Meetings with other Scientific Societies.

Formal business of the Society takes place at the beginning of the meeting, including the opportunity for members to sign the Members' Book, which has been in use since 1865.

Members and non members are welcome to attend the meetings.

LMS Caring Costs Policy 

The LMS wishes to enable carers and parents to take part in the activities that it supports. Applicants for grants across Schemes 1-9, for Early Career Research activities or who will run Society Meetings can request funding to help mathematicians with caring or parenting responsibilities to participate in their activities. In addition, individuals requiring support for caring to attend conferences, workshops, research schools and meetings or to make research visits - not necessarily organised by LMS - can apply for a Caring Supplementary Grant to contribute to such costs.  

The Policy is available here.
