The mathematical theory and practice of cryptography and coding underpins the provision of effective security and reliability for data communication, processing and storage. Theoretical and practical advances in the fields of cryptography and coding are therefore a key factor in facilitating the growth of data communications and data networks of various types. Thus, this fourteenth International Conference in an established and successful IMA series on the theme of "Cryptography and Coding" is both timely and relevant. Original research papers on all technical aspects of cryptography and coding are solicited for submission. The proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (subject to approval), and will be available at the conference.

The IMA President, Professor Robert MacKay, has invited a number of IMA Journal Editors and Councillors to address a one-day research meeting. The meeting is deliberately contiguous with the SIAM UKIE 2014 conference to encourage delegates to attend both conferences.
Date 10 - 12 July 2014
Location St Catherine's, Oxford
This event is the premier maintenance and reliability modelling conference in the UK and builds upon a very successful series of previous conferences. It is an excellent international forum for disseminating information on the state-of-the-art research, theories and practices in maintenance and reliability modelling and offers a platform for connecting researchers and practitioners from around the world.
Date 10 – 12 September 2014
Location Glasgow Caledonian University, Glasgow, Scotland
This is the first international conference of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) about approaches to teaching and learning mathematics. Mathematics should be understood in the widest possible sense to cover all aspects of mathematics, including number, pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics and the full range of applications of mathematics.
The conference examines learning and teaching throughout the life span, from the most basic to the most advanced topics and for the full range of learners, including people with dyscalculia and other maths learning difficulties, gifted learners and mathematicians. This should lead to cross-fertilisation between different areas of learning and teaching. The conference is also highly interdisciplinary. In addition to mathematicians, it should be of interest amongst others to psychologists, teachers, pedagogical and educational experts, engineers, scientists and social scientists.
Date 3 – 5 September 2014
Location University of Birmingham
The IMA and the University of Birmingham are pleased to announce the Forth Biennial IMA Conference on Numerical Linear Algebra and Optimization. The meeting is co-sponsored by SIAM, whose members will receive the IMA members’ registration rate.
The success of modern methods for large-scale optimization is heavily dependent on the use of effective tools of numerical linear algebra. On the other hand, many problems in numerical linear algebra lead to linear, nonlinear or semidefinite optimization problems. The purpose of the conference is to bring together researchers from both communities and to find and communicate points and topics of common interest.
