SAMBa Students, Academics and Managers

The SAMBa conference is an opportunity for students to showcase their current (or future) work to members of the department, outside the department and at other Universities in a supportive environment. The work of SAMBa students covers the entire spectrum of statistical applied mathematics; including projects in statistics, probability, analysis, numerical analysis, mathematical biology, fluid dynamics, machine learning and high performance computing. The conference is organised by students and contains talks by SAMBa students, external speakers, and students from other departments and institutions.

Registration

To register for the SAMBa Conference, please complete the registration form available here. Registration will close on 19th June 2019.

Schedule

Below is the schedule for the conference. The list of speakers can be found below the timetable, along with talk titles and abstracts when they come available.
Each block of talks is nominally linked by a broad theme, which are given to provide some idea of the focus of that session. However mathematics is a very rich subject and reasearch will normally full under many of these themes. See the list of speakers for full details on what will be presented in each session.
