Support for online activity: events and seminars

Closing Date: Open

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to limit our ability to work face-to-face ICMS is supporting the mathematical sciences community in the UK by helping to organize and run online seminars (both one-off events and seminar series). Working with us will enable you to broaden the reach of your events, include international participants, and make it possible for geographically separate groups to come together. We have built up an impressive repository of recorded talks which you can browse here.

The benefit of running events through ICMS is that we can do all the tedious, tricky background work and allow you to concentrate on the scientific content. ICMS has the experience and expertise in running events online and can organise scheduling, technical support, advertising and manage a registration/ invitation process as you like. Over the past year, we have learned a great deal about how to run events online and to make the most of the technology to ensure a rewarding and valuable experience for participants.

Support provided includes:

  • Hosting the webinar and providing technical support throughout
  • Practice/support sessions on Zoom for speakers and participants in advance
  • Advertising the event and issuing invitations to participants
  • Registration / gatekeeping of participants
  • Making a recording of the event available online if desired

As you would expect from an event run by ICMS, we will be flexible with you to make your event successful. We are happy to support you to run a one-off event or a seminar series. Seminar series will be supported by ICMS between October - April each year. In the spring and summer months we will be focussing on our core funded activities.

One-off events

We are able to offer support for one-off events (events that take place over one or two days for example).

To enquire, please apply here. We will respond within five working days.


The main aim of Virtual Forum for Knowledge Exchange in the Mathematical Sciences (V-KEMS) is to identify a range of virtual approaches that will help address challenges from business and industry, the third sector, and other groups outside academia.
