Find out about our Summer Conference 2021, which is being hosted online 27-28 July 2021.

Summer Conference 2021

This Student Chapter is run and organised by a committee of PhD students all of whom are involved with applied mathematical and statistical research at the University of Sheffield.

What we do

We aim to promote and encourage applied mathematical and computational research by bringing together undergraduate and postgraduate students, and also staff. We aspire to establish connections between different academic disciplines and encourage everyone with an interest in quantitative research to get in touch with us. We hope to promote interdisciplinary research at Sheffield, build connections with other UK academic institutions, establish links  with industrial partners, and provide a forum for both students and staff to communicate their work to a wider audience.
To achieve these goals we plan on hosting events throughout the academic year, including:

  • A student seminar to showcase some of the applied mathematics research currently being undertaken both at Sheffield and also other SIAM-IMA Student Chapters
  • Regular talks by both academic and industrial speakers 
  • Minicourses in the summer on trending topics in applied and industrial mathematics
  • A virtual conference in July 2021
  • Employability-focused meetings
