Upcoming Events

3rd Edwards Symposium - New Horizons in Soft Matter

Wednesday 5th September 2018 to Friday 7th September 2018
Centre for Mathematical Sciences

This Series is both a tribute to the life and work of Professor Sir Sam Edwards FRS, one of the great scientific minds of the 20th Century, and a recognition of the fast evolving and diverse nature of soft matter science. Sir Sam’s played a pivotal role in bringing advances in the physical sciences to bear on major industrial problems. His fundamental contributions to the field of soft matter ranged from polymer melts, through gels, colloids, granular materials and glasses to optimisation problems.

Evidence Based Decisions for UK Landscapes

Monday 17th September 2018 to Tuesday 18th September 2018
Isaac Newton Institute

The mathematical sciences are of fundamental importance to solving many ongoing problems across numerous scientific, societal and economic areas and never more so than today, where ‘big data’ continues to increase exponentially and uncertainty and risk predominate.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Clinical Imaging Research: Progress and Promise

Tuesday 6th November 2018
The Alan Turing Institute

This one day event will aim to review scientific and policy developments in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) when applied to clinical imaging. It will identify key steps that will expedite the delivery of research in the field, in partnership with academia, industry, patients and clinical researchers.

Understanding Multi-Modal Data for Social and Human Behaviour

Tuesday 27th November 2018
Isaac Newton Institute

Real benefits to many areas of modern society arise if one can analyse, model and predict different aspects of social and human behaviours.  Techniques, such as those offered by RPT, increase the range of potential successes to include recognising human actions and understanding changing facial expressions.

This workshop aims to increase awareness of what is possible, whether it be better mitigation of risks, management of outcomes, or supporting individuals in their daily lives, across the spectrum of social and human behaviour.

Achieving Impact in Healthcare: From Mathematics to Clinical Support Systems and Devices

Wednesday 10th April 2019 to Thursday 11th April 2019
Isaac Newton Institute

This joint workshop of the five Centres will focus on translating mathematical research into technological advances, as well as outreach and linkage with clinicians and end-user companies. It will present the opportunity to hear in detail about the project collaborations, research and outcomes from each Centre. The programme will aim not only to nurture the mathematical research associated with the Centres, but to engage end-users to ensure that best practice is spread as widely as possible.

Past Events

Statistical Scalability for Streaming Data

Thursday 21st June 2018
Isaac Newton Institute

Challenges in streaming data arise in numerous fields – consumer products, financial transactions, computer network traffic, transport and communications networks and energy systems are just some of them. As with statistical scaling generally, this requires an integrated approach.

Uncertainty Quantification for Complex Systems – Development in Theory and Methodologies

Friday 15th June 2018
Isaac Newton Institute

Uncertainty quantification (UQ) is a modern inter-disciplinary science that cuts across traditional research groups and combines statistics, numerical analysis and computational applied mathematics.
This workshop was part of the six month programme at the INI on  Uncertainty Quantification for Complex Systems: Theory and Methodologies and took place towards the end of the Programme,, it focused on disseminating the key outputs and highlighted some potential outcomes that could be taken forward.
