The London Mathematical Society sets aside funds to be used for making grants to support the attendance of UK-based mathematicians at the European Congresses of Mathematics (held every four years) and the International Congress of Mathematicians (also held every four years) The Society would particularly like to support those mathematicians at an early stage in their career, including postdocs.
9ECM 2024 Travel Grants
Applications for travel grants to attend the 9th European Congress of Mathematics (9ECM) 2024 in Seville, Spain could be submitted via the following schemes:
- LMS ECM Travel Grants for Early Career Researchers - two deadlines: 8 January 2024 and 22 February 2024
- LMS ECM Travel Grants for Established Mathematicians - one deadline: 8 January 2024; applications now closed
Grants of up to £500.00 were available to contribute to the costs of attending the 9ECM, not to meet them entirely. The grants are not to support attendance at Satellite Meetings.
Applicants had to be Early Career Researchers, defined as within five years of PhD completion (excluding career breaks), based at a UK institution. UK-based PhD students whose research would benefit from attending the meeting could also apply but their applications needed to be strongly supported, with a clear mathematical case, by their supervisor.
- Applicants who applied by 22 February 2024 will be informed of the outcome before the end of March 2024.
- Please remember to:
- make a copy of your application to send to your supervisor/Head of Department,
- ask your supervisor/Head of Department, or equivalent, to complete the online referee form by 22 February 2024.
LMS ECM Travel Grants for Established Mathematicians - Applications are now closed. The deadline was 8 January 2024
Please note that the LMS Travel Grants do not cover 9ECM registration fees, details of which can be found on the 9ECM website here. There are different registration fee levels for EMS members and non-EMS members. If you are not currently an EMS member but are an LMS member then you can join the EMS via your LMS user record when logging in here for £23.00 (€25.00) to cover EMS membership in 2024. Those who are aged 60+ may be interested in the EMS’ lifetime membership. More details about EMS membership is available on the EMS website here.
