TICT2020 — Topics in Category Theory: A Spring School
11 Mar 2020 - 13 Mar 2020 • Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Abstract:
This Spring School will gather together PhD students and junior researchers who use category-theoretic ideas or techniques in their research. It will provide a forum to learn about important themes in contemporary category theory, both from experts and from each other. Three invited speakers will each present a three-hour mini-course, accessible to non-specialists, introducing an area of active research. There will also be short talks contributed by PhD students and postdocs, and a poster session. The focus of the Spring School is on aspects of pure category theory as they interact with research in other areas of algebra, geometry, topology and logic. Any "categorical thinker" - that is, any mathematician whose work makes use of categorical ideas - is welcome to participate.

BECMC 2020 — British Early Career Mathematicians’ Colloquium 2020
01 Apr 2020 - 02 Apr 2020 • Birmingham, United Kingdom
Organizer:
University of Birmingham, School of Mathematics
Abstract:
Abstract submissions are now open for the British Early Career Mathematicians’ Colloquium (BECMC) (formerly BYMC). Registration will open shortly. The BECMC will be held on the 1st-2nd April 2020 at the University of Birmingham. This will be a two-day event aimed at PhD students and early career mathematicians. It offers participants a valuable opportunity to network with others in their field, gain an insight into the active areas of research in a wide range of mathematical disciplines, and give a talk in a relaxed and friendly environment. The committee recognises that the standard of access at academic conferences across the UK is largely unacceptable. Our team are working to improve this within their capabilities, both for this BECMC 2020 and for future conferences. Please see our website for full details about the accessibility at the conference.

Young Researchers in Lie theory
15 Jun 2020 - 19 Jun 2020 • University of Kent, United Kingdom
Organizer:
University of Kent
Abstract:
In this conference we aim to bring together postgraduate researchers working on various areas of Lie theory, such as classical representation theory, diagrammatic and 2-categorical Lie theory and algebraic geometry (such as homogenous spaces). Our goal is to create a friendly and supportive environment for postgraduate students to present their work, see other people’s work and discuss ideas that could be useful in their research. Moreover postgraduate students will have the opportunity to attend talks from experienced researchers in the area.

YRC — Young Researchers in Combinatorics
19 Jul 2020 - 25 Jul 2020 • Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Abstract:
The Young Researchers in Combinatorics workshop is aimed at PhD students and early-career academics working in Extremal and Probabilistic Combinatorics and related fields. By building an environment without senior researchers, we hope the participants will feel free to contribute their ideas openly, thus preparing them to undertake their own research projects. The workshop consists mostly of working sessions in which participants collaborate on research problems, and a limited number of talks and lectures. We aim to host around 10 invited participants and about 25 PhD students for a week between 19 and 25 July 2020 at ICMS Edinburgh. Accommodation and refreshments are provided for all participants, as well as a conference dinner. A registration fee of 100GBP is payable by all non-invited participants. We expect to start accepting applications in October 2019.
