This one day general interest meeting in mathematics is open to postgraduates, undergraduates and staff from the University of Birmingham as well as
from other institutions.
The idea of the meeting is that all the talks should be accessible for people with a mathematical background. Some of the talks may also be of interest
to those studying or researching in other disciplines. Participants are welcome to come to as many or as few of the talks as they wish.
All the lectures will take place in Lecture Room A of the Watson building. A campus map can be found here
and travel information here.
Although there is no formal registration for the meeting, we would be grateful if those wishing to attend for the whole day inform us by 24th May. In
particular, we would like to know those planning on coming to the lunch at the meeting.
Please contact Andrew Treglown.
