This is a long-standing annual event with a broad mathematical outlook across areas of pure and applied mathematics, statistics and OR.

It is aimed at bringing together mathematicians at Welsh HEIs, while also welcoming mathematicians from other parts of the UK.

It plays an important role in fostering mathematical discussion and collaboration between staff and postgraduates in Wales, both on research topics and on higher education policy, and offers a stimulating environment for postgraduate researchers to present their results with ample time for follow-up discussion.

The following invited plenary speakers have agreed to give keynote lectures:

  • Professor Chris Budd OBE (University of Bath and Gresham College)
  • Dr Chris L Farmer (University of Oxford)
  • Professor Sarah Hart (Birkbeck University of London)

The organisers of the Colloquium are Matthew Lettington and Karl Michael Schmidt (Cardiff University School of Mathematics). Some financial support is available for UK-based research students. The Colloquium is supported by an London Mathematical Society (LMS) conference grant.
