The maths "Research Day" aims to support research and increase cohesion between various groups of the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Join us and listen to the in-person talks by your fellows (junior/senior/peer) and take a break with coffee breaks and lunch. At the end of the day we will meet for a happy hour.

THE REGISTRATION THROUGH THE WEBSITE IS NOW CLOSED! For any related questions, please contact Reza Drikvandi at

We will gather in the SCOTT LOGIC LECTURE THEATRE on the ground floor of the Mathematical Sciences and Computer Science Building for attending the talks. Coffee and lunch breaks will take place next to the cafe on the ground floor. The happy hour will be held on the 3rd floor street.

All talks will be given in person. The following Zoom link is just for audience who cannot make it in person:
