Hosted by the University of St Andrews

Monday 1st August to Thursday 4th August 2016


Young Researchers in Mathematics (YRM) is the UK’s largest mathematics conference run for postgraduate students by postgraduate students. The aim of YRM is to promote a fun, friendly and collaborative atmosphere in which participants can present and discuss their research with like-minded mathematicians at the early stages of their careers.

A copy of the conference booklet (including schedule) is available to download.

Conference Outline

YRM 2016 will be hosted by the University of St Andrews from Monday 1st August to Thursday 4th August 2016.

During the conference, participants will have the opportunity to present their work in the form of a short talk (20 minutes plus five minutes for questions). These talks will be organised into ‘streams’ reflecting the different areas of research.

There will also be plenary and keynote talks from distinguished speakers across all areas of mathematics, a poster competition, and three workshops over the course of the conference. One workshop will be delivered by ThinkTank Maths, another by The Brilliant Club, and the final one delivered by Dr Jonathan Fraser.

On the evening of Monday 1st August there will be a combined wine reception and poster competition, and on the evening of Wednesday 3rd August, the conference dinner will take place at Lower College Hall. The conference dinner will be followed by an evening of traditional Scottish dancing in the form of a ceilidh courtesy of The Cutting Edge Band. This entertainment is included as part of the conference dinner but you’re not obliged to dance – we promise!

The conference will close after lunch on Thursday 4th August.
