Welcome to the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) blog. The IMA is the UK's learned and professional society for mathematics and its applications. We promote mathematics research, education and careers, and the use of mathematics in business, industry and commerce. Among our activities we produce academic journals, organise conferences and engage with government.

In this blog we will publish mathematical articles and news to reflect the interests of our members who come from a multiplicity of different organisations including university academics, industrial mathematicians, financiers, school teachers, scientists, civil servants etc.

Representing the IMA at the YRM

The Young Researchers in Mathematics (YRM) Conference is to be held in Bristol from 2nd to 4th April 2012 and the IMA is looking for volunteers to help "man" the IMA stand.

Ideally we are looking for post-graduates with some work experience (either as a researcher at university or in industry).

Volunteers will be expected to hand out leaflets and answer questions about their career choices or their field of work/research.

If you can help out on any or all of the days please contact the Conference Officer at conferences@ima.org.uk to register your interest.
