SAMBa Summer Conference

20-21 June 2017

SAMBa Cohort

This conference is intended to showcase the work of the students in the Statistical Applied Mathematics at Bath (SAMBa) Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT). SAMBa encompasses research in statistics, probability, computational mathematics and applied mathematics, with the students beginning the programme with a year of broad training in these areas, before beginning their own research. The conference will promote the broad range of research undertaken in SAMBa to the rest of the Mathematics department, other departments at Bath and participants from other UK universities and industry.

If you have any questions about the conference, you're welcome to email the organisers Ben Robinson and Adwaye Rambojun.

Registration

If you would like to attend, please register.

Registration is free but it will be very helpful for us to know numbers in advance.

Arriving by train

If you are arriving by train, you should arrive at Bath Spa train stations. You can then take the U1, 17 or 18 bus to the university from Dorchester Street (opposite the station to the left), or walk to the university in 30-40 minutes (up quite a steep hill!).

Arriving into Bristol Airport

Coming from Bristol airport, take the A4 bus to Bath, which brings you to the train station, from where you can walk or take a bus, as described above.

Arriving by car

If you plan to drive to the university, limited visitor parking spaces are available on campus. See the university's guide to parking on campus.
