The British Mathematical Colloquium will take place at the School of Mathematics and Statistics in the University of Sheffield, 25-28 March 2013. The first talk will start at 16:00 on Monday March 25th, and the last will end at 12:30 on Thursday March 28th. The organisers are David Jordan and Eugenia Cheng.

On the morning of the 25th there will also be three events that are satellites of the BMC but not formally part of it.
