Edinburgh Mathematical Society Postgraduate Meeting for Students 2014

 02 - 04 Jun 2014
 The Burn

The Society hosted its seventeenth residential meeting for postgraduate students from Scottish universities at the Burn. The aim was to provide an informal setting for students to meet others working in similar areas. Participants were encouraged to give short talks on their research, with ample time left for socialising and exploration of the grounds.
