Entrance hall of the ICMS Workshop

GCRF and UK Mathematical Sciences

Feb 26, 2018 - Mar 02, 2018

ICMS, Edinburgh

The Isaac Newton Institute (INI) and International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS) will jointly run a meeting (at ICMS, Edinburgh) to consider the capacity for and capability of the mathematical sciences community in the UK to produce major impact  in the research themes funded through the GCRF. This meeting will bring together roughly twenty mathematical scientists from the UK and other non-ODA recipient countries, with an equal number of researchers from ODA recipient countries. This meeting is being funded by EPSRC through the Council for Mathematical Sciences and will take place before the end of February 2018. 

Further details are available on the website

November 2017 - The current focus is arranging invites etc for ODA participants to ensure visas etc can be obtained.  Once this has been achieved, we will open up the registration for UK participants.


The meeting is scheduled for the week beginning 26 February 2018.

The meeting will be held at ICMS, Edinburgh.


Registration for UK participants will open in early January 2018


A provisional programme is shown below.  Please note that this may change due to delegate schedules etc.
