ICMS-INI Joint Correspondents Annual Meeting

 27 - 28 Jan 2021

The annual ICMS-INI Joint Correspondents Network annual meeting will take place on Zoom this year. The meeting is hosted by ICMS in Edinburgh.

The meeting will take place over two days. Starting at 14.00 on Wednesday and then again at 10.00 on Thursday morning.

With the exciting announcement of significant additional funding for both institutes the focus of this year's meeting will be outlining both institutes spending plans. There will be a scence setting introduction for the whole mathematical sciences community from Alison Etheridge, Chair of the EPSRC advisory group on Additional Funding.  Paul Glendinning of ICMS and David Abrahams of the INI will both outline their plans for the addtional funding. There will be an opportunity for Correspondents to ask questions. There will also be an update on how both institutes are delivering their events in a virtual world.  The first session will end with a chance to visit a virtual ICMS in GatherTown and meet up with fellow Correspondents.  The second session will allow the correspondents to work in small groups to discuss the additional funding plans and gives an opportunity for them to feed back their thoughts and suggestions to both institutes.

A Zoom link will be sent to all registered participants. Correspondents who have not yet registered should do so as soon as possible using this form.
