A Meeting For All Mathematicians
Programme Available On-line
A Joint Meeting of the British Mathematical Colloquium (BMC) and the British Applied Mathematics Colloquium (BAMC) was held at the University of Cambridge from 11:00 on Monday 30^{th} March 2015 to 13:00 on Thursday 2^{nd} April 2015. This was the 4^{th} Joint Meeting following Warwick (2002), Liverpool (2005) and Edinburgh (2010).
Programme Available On-line
The programme of the meeting is available on-line at tinyurl.com/bmc-bamc including, in PDF form (with clickable links):
- The Conference Booklet; a hard-copy of this booklet was handed out at registration.
- The Booklet of Abstracts. We hope that delegates will use the on-line version (either the standard version or the small-devices version); please note the "Table of Contents" and "Index" active links at the bottom of each page. A few versions of this booklet are available at the conference desk in the CMS.
- An Addendum to the above material.
In addition, the following pages (extracted from the above documents) are available as web pages:
- A one-page summary of the Conference Programme
- A one-page summary of the Timetable of Workshops/Sessions
- A List of Abstracts
All timetabled talks included at least 2 minutes of questions and 1 minute changeover between speakers. For example, a 20-minute slot provided time for a 17-minute presentation at maximum. Session chairs were asked to stick rigidly to the timetable to allow delegates to switch between talks in different rooms.
Registration, Payment and Abstract Submission
After extremely high demand, registration sold out. Abstract submission closed on 7^{th} February 2015.
LMS Celebration
There was a celebration of the 150^{th} Anniversary of the LMS on 1^{st} April 2015. The Conference Dinner was held on the evening of the same day.
