The University of Greenwich Department of Mathematical Sciences, in conjunction with The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), is very pleased to announce the second Undergraduate Mathematics Conference in London which will be held on Saturday 16th February 2013. The keynote speaker will be Professor Robin Wilson, Pembroke College, Oxford who has written a number of popular maths books including Lewis Carroll in Numberland and Four Colours Suffice as well as several well-known texts on Graph Theory. Professor Wilson will talk on "Leonhard Euler: Life, Labours and Legacy".
This will be a fascinating day which will give participants the opportunity to learn about a wide range of mathematics which has excited their peers. The aim of the conference is to enable final year (and other) undergraduates to give presentations on mathematical topics of their choice. At the first TMT conference undergraduates from Aberdeen, Birkbeck University of London, Cambridge, Exeter, Glasgow, Greenwich, Leeds, Liverpool, Oxford, Royal Holloway and St Andrews presented their work on numerous areas of mathematics.
Mathematics students will benefit enormously from this in a number of ways. Those going into research will gain experience of the process of conference submission, while those going into the workplace will gain valuable experience of professional practice and networking to enhance their CVs and career prospects. Speakers will additionally gain evidence of their professional skills. All delegates will gain insights into a wide range of mathematics of potential value in their future careers. It should be a wonderfully enjoyable day of inspiring mathematics.
