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: Wednesday 13 - Friday 15 September 2017
Location: University of Bath


Please note this conference  has been postponed and will now take place Wednesday 13 - Friday 15 September 2017. Further details (including deadline dates) will be announced in due course. We regret any inconvenience caused by this change of date. If you would like to register your interest in this title, please e-mail

November 2016


IMA Early Career Mathematicians' Autumn Conference 2016

Date: Saturday 5th November 2016

Location: University of Warwick

The IMA Early-Career Mathematicians’ Autumn Conference will be held at the University of Warwick. This bi-annual event aims to bring together young mathematicians working in industry, government and academia along with undergraduate and postgraduate students. The day will provide a wide variety of inspirational presentations based on mathematical topics as well as a number of workshops. The atmosphere encourages those attending to develop new skills and to network with each other and learn from each others' experiences.

December 2016


2nd IMA Conference on the Mathematical Challenges of Big Data

Date: Thursday 1st – Friday 2nd December 2016

Location: Mary Ward House, London

Big data and data science are topics of the moment. Among the raft of conferences on these subjects few have a clear focus on the underpinning theoretical methodologies to maximise the information that can be extracted in the presence of inherent uncertainties, sampling bias, data streams, data linkage and all of the other specific features of so-called big data applications. This conference will showcase work by young and established researchers advancing the state-of-the-art on a rigorous mathematical basis. Alongside new methodology there will be application strands led by industry to showcase the power of mathematical approaches in practical applications. Each session will feature an invited talk by an expert speaker who will review an advanced area of current research.


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.


April 2017


IMA and OR Society Conference on Mathematics of Operational Research
Innovating mathematics for new industrial challenges

Date: Thursday 20 - Friday 21 April 2017
Location: Aston University, Birmingham, UK

The conference will aim to draw together the considerable community of researchers and practitioners who develop new mathematics of relevance to and which underpin  applications in Operational Research (OR).  It will take a comprehensive view, will showcase activity from across OR, and will welcome both contributions which have a clear application focus as well as those which are theoretically driven.

Contributions will be expected to showcase both significant new mathematics and OR relevance.  The conference will host plenaries from leading international experts.

June 2017

2nd IMA Conference on Nonlinearity and Coherent Structures

Date:  Monday 19 – Wednesday 21 June 2017

Location:  University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK

The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers working on aspects of nonlinear phenomena and to encourage interaction between experts from different areas such as Applied Mathematics, Mathematical Analysis, Fluid Dynamics, Engineering and Physics.  Recent theoretical developments, new computational methods and experimental findings will be presented and discussed. We plan to avoid parallel sessions and foster as much as possible communication across the different communities.

July 2017

Mathematics Education beyond 16: Pathways and Transitions
a conference of the IMA, CETL-MSOR and Teaching Mathematics and its Applications

Date:  10 - 12 July 2017

Location:  University of Birmingham

This conference is for all who are involved in Mathematics Teaching and Education from years 11 through to undergraduate, in schools, sixth form and college, in university and in mathematics/statistics support units. It provides a forum for sharing, discussing and developing ideas, research and practice in this rapidly changing landscape. The main work of the conference will be organised in themed working groups. There will also be invited speakers from policy and practice, and a special contribution from CETL-MSOR.

Upcoming conferences include:

IMA Conference on Inverse Problems from Theory to Application
Tuesday 19 - Thursday 21 September 2017, Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge, UK
