Isaac Newton Institute

United Kingdom


The Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information (CCIMI) is pleased to announce its second annual academic conference, which will focus on the academic interactions taking place related to the mathematics of machine learning.

Launched in 2016, CCIMI accommodates research activity on fundamental mathematical problems and methodology for understanding, analysing, processing and simulating data. Data science research performed in the Institute is of the highest international level, aiming to extract the relevant information from large and high-dimensional data with a predictable certainty.

This event follows previous successful academic and industrial engagement events, which focused on different aspects related to the mathematics of information.

Aims and Objectives

This one day conference will bring together those academics working to advance data science and will provide an update on research and collaborations taking place at CCIMI, associated challenges and other potential collaborative opportunities, as well as highlighting projects being developed elsewhere related to machine learning.

The programme of talks is currently being developed and will be likely to cover the following areas:

  • Complexity theory
  • Signal processing
  • Partial differential equations
  • Deep neural networks.

There will be a session for short “elevator pitches” from next generation researchers, who will also have the opportunity to present more detail about their work in a poster exhibition, which will run during the lunch and the drinks/networking session. 

This event will be of interest to participants including social scientists; physicists; engineers; biomedical scientists as well as those working in statistics; pure, applied and computational analysis; quantum computing, cryptography, communication and security and those from data processing.

The provisional programme is now available.

Registration and Venue

Attendance is free. To register and for further information, please follow the link.

Talks will be aimed at academics, and a mathematical background will be assumed, however, attendees from industry and the public sector are welcome. 

The workshop will take place at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge. Please see the Isaac Newton Institute website for further information about the venue.
