The aim of this colloquium is to consolidate the network among young researchers and postgraduate students from all across the country, especially in the branches of mathematics studied in our school — algebra, analysis, combinatorics, applied mathematics and optimisation. The event will be divided into two parallel sessions (pure maths, and applied maths and optimisation), each of them with plenary talks and short postgraduate talks spread throughout the day.

Call for abstracts

Postgraduate students working in any field of mathematics are encouraged to submit an abstract for a short (25 minutes) talk. This includes students from the UK as well as abroad. The submission deadline is the 15th of March. Send submissions to


It is a pleasure to have the following as invited speakers:

Pure Maths
Applied Maths

The list of participants is also available.


The schedule will appear in due course.


Registrations will open in early 2019.
