We are now accepting submissions for contributed talks and posters. This can also be done via the registration form.

The deadline for contributed talk abstracts is Friday 30th March 2018, and for poster submissions Friday 13th April 2018.

Some funding is available to support students giving presentations. If funding is necessary for you to attend the conference, please note this in the registration form and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

We follow both the SIAM Statement on Inclusiveness and the IMA Diversity Statements, and we endeavour to create a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere at the conference, with a diverse range of participants. Students from groups which are underrepresented in the mathematical sciences are particularly encouraged to submit an abstract for a talk or poster.

If you have any questions about the conference, you're welcome to email the Bath SIAM-IMA Student Chapter Committee.


The programme will comprise sessions of student talks and posters, and four plenary talks from the folowing speakers:
