The websites for previous editions of the BYMC can be found here (2015) and here (2016).

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. Funding is available for students of the universities in the MAGIC network, see below. Limited funding is available for other students. The submission deadline is the 31st of March.
