IMA Early Career Mathematicians’ Conference Spring 2018

Do you want to get more involved with the IMA? Are you keen to rub shoulders with your mathematical peers? Then come along to the Early Career Mathematicians’ Spring conference on Saturday 21 April 2018 at Durham University.

The conference will interest mathematicians early in their career, be it in academia or industry, as well as students of mathematics, and those with an interest in the subject. There will be plenty of time to network; allowing you the opportunity to meet people with similar interests and find out more about the wide range of careers that are available.

The ECM Branch

The ECM Branch (ECM) is designed for those with a maths degree who are within the first 15 years of graduating, or, those without a degree who are within the first 15 years of membership. The ECM group has been set up to engage and empower ECM, and students of mathematics at university, to provide them with support and an opportunity to network.

The ECM Branch holds conferences twice a year which provide an opportunity for mathematicians across industry, academia and university to meet. It offers a range of mathematical presentations and activities for attendees to participate in.
