International Centre for Mathematical Sciences

ICMS stimulates and promotes the mathematical sciences through diverse international workshops and conferences. Our vibrant events programme attracts leading mathematical scientists from the UK and internationally - connecting mathematical communities across the world. As a response to COVID, we are now experienced in organising and hosting virtual events, alongside in-person ones.

In addition to workshops, ICMS manages a number of other mathematical activities, such as our very popular Research-in-Groups programme; an extensive knowledge exchange programme; public engagement; and by giving administrative support to a number of mathematical groups.

For information on our aims, governance structure and our gender and diversity policies, see the About page.


Funding opportunities

The International Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Edinburgh is funded by EPSRC to support research in all areas of the mathematical sciences and its connections to other disciplines and industry.

Knowledge Exchange

ICMS brings together mathematicians and practitioners in science, industry and commerce for research workshops and other meetings, so that mathematics may be exploited by - and bring benefits to - the widest possible community.



ICMS provides administrative support services to a number of groups, as well as online event support to the mathematical sciences community.



ICMS is made up of the administrative staff, who manage and run our activitites, plus the Committees and Board members who oversee our strategies.
