The RSS International Conference has established itself as the only conference in the UK for anyone interested in statistics and data science.Every year, over 600 statisticians and data scientists gather from all sectors and from over 30 countries to share information and network, attracted by a varied programme of talks and workshops.
It is a tradition for UK based graduate students researching in the area of theoretical particle physics to attend a summer school at the end of the first year. This year 49th British Universities Summer School in Theoretical Elementary Particle Physics (BUSSTEPP) was held in Glasgow.
The following courses were presented over the two week period:
Advanced Topics in QFT Johannes Henn (MPI Munich)
Phenomenology : Fabio Maltoni (Louvain/Bologna)
Beyond The Standard Model : Matthew McCullough (CERN/Cambridge)
AdS/CFT : Marco Meineri (Lausanne)
Cosmology : Clare Burrage (Nottingham)
Experimental Particle Physics : Andreas Korn (UCL)
Lattice Field Theory : Biagio Lucini (Swansea)
String Phenomenology : Eran Palti (MPI Munich)
Gravitational Waves : Martin Hendry (Glasgow)
Outreach and Science in the Public: Kate Shaw (Sussex)
It is the home of our engineering disciplines, computing and mathematical sciences which together provide a vibrant inter-disciplinary and collaborative environment dedicated towards producing graduates with the necessary applied knowledge and skills to meet the demands of employers today and for tomorrow.
At the beginning of September, the ExHILP 2019 conference is being held at the University of Stanford in California. Dr. Ben King is presenting an invited talk. Dr. Thomas Heinzl is a member of the scientific advisory committee.
The International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation (ISSAC) is the premier conference for research in symbolic computation and computer algebra. ISSAC 2019 will be the 44th meeting in the series, which started in 1966 and has been held annually since 1981. The conference presents a range of invited speakers, tutorials, poster sessions, software demonstrations and vendor exhibits with a center-piece of contributed research papers.
The authors are Vladimir Gerdt and Daniel Robertz and the title is: Algorithmic approach to strong consistency analysis of finite difference approximations to PDE systems.
This week is the conference for the foundation year network at the University of Sussex. Dr. Matthew Craven (Programme Manager for Foundation Year) is attending the conference to present his joint work with Jenny Sharp: “Combatting the deficit model in Foundation Year Mathematics: ethical admissions and inclusive curricula.”
