Your thesis subject is very specialised, the ECM conferences tend to focus on how mathematics can be applied to various problems or used in other fields. For example one talk will be about how maths has been used to help design a supersonic car. I am not sure whether it would cover the Hahn-Banach Theorem.

IMA Early Career Mathematicians' Autumn Conference 2012

Date: Saturday 24 November 2012
Location: University of Greenwich, Old Royal Naval College, Park Row, London SE10 9LS

The IMA Early Career Mathematicians' Autumn Conference 2012 will take place at the University of Greenwich on a World Heritage Site on the banks of the River Thames and in the shadow of the Royal Observatory, home of Greenwich Mean Time and the Prime Meridian of the World.

This conference will bring together mathematicians from all walks of life, some of whom have little opportunity to meet other mathematicians, for a day of entertaining and interesting mathematics. This will be the tenth in this series of conferences that I have attended so I know they are a great opportunity for early career mathematicians and students to meet others in similar career stages. Friendships are formed and everyone has a good time. Previous conferences have been described in Mathematics Today reports as "lively and informative", "a friendly and relaxed atmosphere" and "educational, informative and entertaining".

The morning will wake us up with a hands-on session of puzzles, games and recreational maths. This will include an interesting talk from Noel-Ann Bradshaw (University of Greenwich) about how mathematical games are used to develop strategic thinking with students and hands on sessions delivered by David Singmaster (who developed the notation for Rubik's cube moves and introduced the cube to the UK) and Laurie Brokenshire ("Britain's biggest puzzle addict" - Daily Mail).

There will be no opportunity for a post-lunch snooze, with early career mathematicians delivering enthralling afternoon talks about their work in mathematics and its applications, with confirmed speakers so far:
Dr Deirdre Hollingsworth (Imperial College) on mathematics in control of infectious diseases;
Justin Williams (Hiscox) on working as an actuary in insurance;
Geoff Bunce (Matrix Control Solutions) on 'Simulation in Industry';
Jacqueline Bishop (Sellafield) on 'The Use of Uncertainty Calculations in Nuclear Materials Accountancy and Safeguards'.

Talks will not be maths-heavy (it is the weekend, after all!) and the conference is suitable for anyone with an interest in mathematics.

Following the conference, those who want to will enjoy an informal post-conference dinner nearby. Please say when registering if you will join us for this.

I look forward to seeing you in Greenwich!

Peter Rowlett MIMA, Conference Chair, IMA Early Career Mathematicians' Autumn Conference 2012.

If you'd like to attend this conference please register before Friday 16th!
 
I just found out that the conference I am chairing for early career mathematicians in Greenwich on Sat 24th November has 80 delegates plus me! So it's going to be a big one. Are you registered? There's still time!

• Chair: Stephen Lee CMath MIMA
• Vice Chair and Chair-Designate: Sharon Evans MIMA
• Conference Leaders: Peter Rowlett MIMA & Lindsay-Marie Armstrong AMIMA
• Conference Leader-Designate: Jacqueline Bishop AMIMA
• Promotion Leader: Sara Owen AMIMA

We would like to say a special Thank you to all the other candidates who put themselves forward for election this year, and also to all of our ECM group members who voted in the elections. It was great to have the support and engagement from the wider ECM group, and we look forward to your continuing active participation in IMA, and especially ECM group activities.

There are just over 2 weeks left to register for the Spring 2012 ECM Conference in Manchester, with three social events surrounding the conference. This is going to be our biggest ECM event to date I think.
