CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: "Mathematics research beyond the blackboard", 29 Oct 2013, London (U.K.)

29th October LMS: Mathematics Research Beyond the Blackboard

The London Mathematical Society's annual Computer Science Colloquium will 
be held on Tuesday 29th October 2013 on the theme of Mathematics Research 
Beyond the Blackboard. Speakers: John Harrison (Intel), Steve Linton (St 
Andrews), Ursula Martin (QMUL), Nick Trefethen (Oxford)

In recent years computer science has made a variety of contributions to 
the way mathematics research is done. These range from formal proofs of 
results too complex for humans to do by hand, such as the Kepler 
conjecture, to sophisticated computational tools such as chebfun for 
analysis and GAP for algebra and combinatorics, and even the use of social 
media to "crowdsource" proofs. The colloquium presents introductory talks, 
aimed at the level of interested graduate students or postdocs, for those 
who want to know more about these new ways of doing mathematics research, 
with ample scope for questions and discussion.

The event takes place at the Headquarters of the London Mathematical 
Society, de Morgan House 57-58 Russell Square London. WC1B 4HS
