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.
