BAMC 2024

The British Applied Mathematics Colloquium (BAMC) is the largest applied mathematics conference in the UK bringing together students, academics and industry professionals to discuss recent advances within the field.

In 2024, BAMC will be held at Newcastle University from Tuesday April 9th to Thursday April 11th 2024 in the Frederick Douglass centre

We will host an icebreaker event in the evening of Monday 8th April for Early Career Mathematicians (ECM) sponsored by the ECM Committee of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA). For more details and to register for the icebreaker, follow the link:

The public lecture will be given by Julia Gog (University of Cambridge) on "From maths to policy: a COVID-19 story".
