Tomorrow's Mathematicians Today 2017

Date: Saturday 11th February 2017

Location: Manchester Metropolitan University Business School

Manchester Metropolitan University, supported by The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), is very pleased to announce the sixth Undergraduate Mathematics Conference which will be held on Saturday 11th February 2017 from 10am to 5pm.  GCHQ have also kindly agreed to sponsor a prize for the best paper.  The keynote speaker will be Dr Stephen Lynch from Manchester Met who has had a long career both using and teaching mathematical software and has published a number of textbooks in this area.  The title and abstract of the keynote talk will be published on the TMT2017 website, later this summer.

This will be a fascinating day which will give participants the opportunity to learn about a wide range of mathematics which has excited their peers.  The conference is primarily open to final year, or other, mathematics undergraduate students who are invited to present a paper on a mathematical topic of their choice, which makes use of mathematical software in some way.  Previous conferences have seen undergraduate speakers from a wide range of universities including Aberdeen, Birkbeck University of London, Cambridge, Exeter, Glasgow, Greenwich, Leeds, Liverpool, Oxford, Royal Holloway and St Andrews.

Mathematics students will benefit enormously from this in a number of ways.  Those going into research will gain experience of the process of conference submission, while those going into the workplace will gain valuable experience of professional practice and networking to enhance their CVs and career prospects.  Students will also gain an insight into a range of mathematical software and see its potential value to their future careers. 

For further information please contact the organisers Norman Ellis  (N.Ellis@mmu.ac.uk), Stephen Lynch (S.Lynch@mmu.ac.uk)

Additional information on registration and submitting a paper will be published on the TMT2017 website later this summer.

 

Typically the co-sponsor provides publicity for the meeting in return for reduced rates to attend the meeting for members of the co-sponsoring body.
