Swansea University, 12–23 July 2021
As part of its role in sustaining the mathematical community, the London Mathematical Society has introduced Undergraduate Summer Schools. The aim is to introduce to modern mathematics the best UK Maths undergraduates, who are about to enter their final year of study, and to make them think seriously about an academic career at that stage.
The school will have 6 mini-courses (4 lectures/example classes and one Q&A session per course) and about 10 colloquium talks (one hour each). The mini-courses and colloquia will cover various fields of mathematics, including Algebra, Analysis, Biomathematics, Geometry, Probability and Statistics. There will be no assessment of students.

Measuring migration by using traditional and new forms of data
Participants will be students on mathematics programmes who are entering their final year of study in autumn 2021. Each mathematics department in the UK can nominate up to 5 students to participate in this event. The final selection of participants will be made by the Local Organising Committee on the recommendation of the Head of Department and/or LMS representative. Each participant will receive a certificate of a participant of the LMS Undergraduate Summer School.
If you would like to participate, please discuss this with your Head of Department, and then complete the nomination form and return it, together with a copy of your academic transcript to date, to your Head of Department or LMS Representative who will forward nominations to the LMS.
Nominations should be received by 26 March 2021.
In Autumn 2018, the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Computer Science moved into a modern purposely built facility, the Computational Foundry, on the recently opened Swansea University Bay Campus. The Computational Foundry is a £32.5 million world-class facility and a beacon for research collaborations. Its aim is to drive research into computational and mathematical sciences.
The Computational Foundry has two lecture theatres, a large seminar room and a large reading room. There are several networking spaces, where participants of the School will be able to have research discussions or just relax on comfortable chairs or sofas.
The Bay Campus has direct access to a sandy beach. The campus is compact and has a full range of facilities: student accommodation, a library, several catering outlets, a mini-supermarket, sport pitches, a bank. The campus is located less than 4 miles from Swansea city centre and there are frequent buses connecting the campus with the city centre.
Here the Summer School photos will be posted.
