The LMS Undergraduate Summer Schools are held every summer as a 2-week course in a UK university. The aim is to introduce modern mathematics to the best UK undergraduates who will enter their final year the following autumn, and encourage them to think about an academic career in maths. The school consists of a combination of short lecture courses with problem-solving sessions and colloquium-style talks from leading mathematicians. 50 places are available to students per year.
The LMS Early Career Research Committee is responsible for the overall management and funding of the Summer Schools. Decisions on nominations and hosts are made by a Scientific Sub-Committee (Andrew Hone, Frances Kirwan, FRS, Sergei Tabachnikov and Alexander Veselov).
Please email any questions about the Summer Schools to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Summary of process
Summer Schools hosts are agreed by the Scientific Sub-Committee, and there is a different host each year. The host is responsible for organising the event itself, including making arrangements for speakers, accommodation and catering.
In the autumn prior to the next year's Summer Schools, UK institutions are asked to nominate three candidates from their institution who will enter their final year the following autumn. The final attendees are then decided by the hosts, in collaboration with the Scientific Sub-Committee.
A call for nominations for the 2018 Summer Schools will go out later this year.
Future Summer Schools
The 2018 Summer Schools will be held at the University of Glasgow, July 16 - July 27.
The 2019 Summer Schools will be held at the University of Leeds.
