The 10th annual Oxford SIAM-IMA Student Conference will be hosted on Wednesday 2 May 2018 in the Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford.

The aim of the conference is to bring together undergraduate and graduate students, young researchers, and faculty from a wide range of disciplines sharing a common interest in industrial and applied mathematics. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with one another, share their research/study interests, and make useful contacts from the academic community and industry.

Registration and Abstract Submission

Participation is completely free and includes free lunch as well as free pizza and refreshments following the conference. Please register through the form below.

We encourage any students attending the conference to submit an abstract for a talk or poster using the form below. Any abstracts submitted before 10th of April will be entered into a random ballot for a chance to win a £50 Amazon voucher! The final registration/submission deadline is 18th of April.

Keynote Speakers

Dr Petra Vertes is an MRC fellow in Bioinformatics at the University of Cambridge and works on the application of network science to neurological data.

Dr James Sprittles is an Associate Professor at the University of Warwick. His research into fundamental fluid dynamics has impacted both technological and biological applications of fluids. James uses mathematical modelling and computational simulation of microscopic flows. Last year (2017) his novel use of kinetic theory to understand the effect of a liquid spreading over a solid on the air film between received a lot of attention due to its application to the splashing of droplets.


The conference will take place in Lecture Room 3 in the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford, from 09:30 to 17:40, with pizza and drinks in the common room from 17:40 to 19:00.



The conference will be hosted at the Mathematical Institute, located on Woodstock road. The address and a map of the location can be found below.
