Talk at statistics conference in Belfast

This week Dr. Yinghui Wei is attending the RSS 2019 Annual Conference conference in Belfast.

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.

The title of her talk is: Estimating the correlation between bivariate survival endpoints with semi-competing risks

The research is done in collaboration with Lexy Sorrell and Małgorzata Wojtyś from the University of Plymouth.

British Universities Summer School in Theoretical Elementary Particle Physics.

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.

This year Gaurav Sinha Ray from Plymouth attended BUSSTEPP.

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)

School of of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics

There has been a rearrangement of some of the schools in the faculty. The school of engineering has now joined mathematics and computing to form the new School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics.

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.

One of the many exciting developments resulting from the new school is the construction of a new Engineering and Design Facility on campus.
We envisage the new building will open in the summer of 2022.

Talk at ISSAC 2019

Next week, Daniel Robertz is presenting his research at the ISSAC 2019 conference in China.

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.
