Tomorrow's Mathematicians Today 2016

Date: Saturday 13th February 2016

Location: University of Greenwich

The University of Greenwich Maths Centre, in conjunction with The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), is very pleased to announce the fifth Undergraduate Mathematics Conference which will be held on Saturday 13th February 2016.  The keynote speaker will be Dr Eugenia Cheng, University of Sheffield and currently Scientist in Residence at the Art Institute of Chicago. Dr Cheng's recent book: Cakes, Custard and Category Theory cleverly illustrates complex mathematics through delicious culinary analogies. Title and Abstract of keynote to follow.

Early Career Mathematicians' Conference Spring 2016

Date: Saturday 5 March 2016

Location: University of Birmingham

The IMA Early Career Mathematicians’ Spring Conference will be held at the University of Birmingham on Saturday 5th March 2016. This bi-annual event aims to bring together young mathematicians working in industry and academia along with undergraduate and postgraduate students. The day will provide a wide variety of inspirational presentations based on mathematical topics and, this year for the first time, a selection of business skills workshops for attendees. The atmosphere encourages those attending to develop new skills in a positive way and to network with each other to learn from others' experiences.


IMA Mathematics 2016

Date: 17th March 2016

Location: Mary Ward House, 5-7 Tavistock Place, London, WC1H 9SN

Mathematics 2016 is the tenth in the series of annual IMA conferences to promote mathematics. This series aims to demonstrate to both mathematicians and non mathematicians the many uses of modern mathematics. We hope that the audience will have mathematicians

8th IMA Conference on Quantitative Modelling in the Management Of Health and Social Care

Date: 21 – 23 March 2016

Location: Asia House, London W1G 7LP

Health and Social Care systems are facing major challenges worldwide, due in part to changes in demography and advances in technology and in part to changes in the structure and organisation of the system whether they are hospitals, general practitioners or long-term care settings. Yet running health and social care systems efficiently and effectively is crucial to improving or even maintaining our quality of life.

Over the years, extensive research has been conducted to find immediate and long-term solutions to issues that are routinely faced by health and social care professionals, such as waiting lists and bed capacity, hospital redesign, workforce planning and scheduling, patient flow, performance management, disease monitoring, and health care technology assessment. In addition, there has been an exponential growth in the generation of data whether routinely for administrative or financial purposes or more specifically for clinical or research purposes including through devices and sensors.


IMA Conference on Theoretical and Computational Discrete Mathematics

Date: Tuesday 22 – Wednesday 23 March 2016

Location: The Enterprise Centre, University of Derby

Discrete mathematics is a branch of the mathematical sciences which poses a wide range of challenging research problems and gives rise to important applications in other fields such as computer science, engineering, industry, business, finance and the physical/biological sciences. It is a dynamic subject in which techniques, theories and algorithms are drawn from many different areas, and it offers a diverse and stimulating environment for those whose work lies within it.

The purpose of this conference is to highlight theoretical and computational advances in the general field of discrete mathematics. It is open to researchers working with mathematical structures and abstract constructs, and to those involved in the theory and practise of discrete algorithmic computing. Results which establish links between different areas of discrete mathematics are welcomed, as are applications and the development of new tools. The purpose of this conference is to highlight progress in the field, the development of novel methodologies, and applications accordingly.


July 2016


IMA Conference on Turbulence, Waves and Mixing

Date:Wednesday 6 – Friday 8 July 2016

Location:King’s College Cambridge, UK

The theme of this conference is to discuss, with review lectures and contributed papers, the ongoing developments of research in ‘turbulence, waves and mixing’ and their applications in industry, environment and geo/astro and mathematical physics.

9th IMA International Conference on Modelling in Industrial Maintenance and Reliability (MIMAR)

Date:Tuesday 12 – Thursday 14 July 2016

Location: Imperial College London, London, UK

The 9th International Conference on Modelling in Industrial Maintenance and Reliability (MIMAR) will take place in London, UK from 12-14 July 2016. 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.

September 2016


5th IMA Conference on Numerical Linear Algebra and Optimisation

Date: 7 – 9 September 2016

Location: University of Birmingham, UK

The IMA and the University of Birmingham are pleased to announce the Fifth 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 codes 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.

15th IMA Conference on Mathematics of Surfaces

Date: 14 - 16 September 2016

Location: University of Bath

Computer-based methods for the capture, construction, representation, fitting, interrogation and manipulation of complicated surfaces have led to a wide interest in, and need for, the mathematics of surfaces and related topics including curves, motions and computational geometry. Many applications require the use of surface descriptions, especially in such fields as computer aided design and manufacturing, isogeometric analysis, computer graphics, computer vision and computer animation. The description of surfaces is also of interest in geographic information systems, multimedia, and many other areas of science and medicine. This diversity and the wide range of applicability of the subject have already enabled the IMA to hold fourteen very successful international conferences in the Mathematics of Surfaces series. The 15th such conference has now been scheduled to be held at the University of Bath, UK, in September 2016.  A number of international speakers are being invited.

December 2016


11th IMA International Conference on Mathematics in Signal Processing

Date: Monday 12 – Wednesday 14 December 2016

Location: IET Austin Court, Birmingham

This event builds upon a very successful series of previous conferences. From the first event held in Bath in 1985 to the most recent one held in Birmingham in 2014 as successful as its predecessors, the organising committee is delighted to announce the 11th IMA International Conference on Mathematics in Signal Processing to be held 12 – 14 December, 2016.
