The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications’s flagship general mathematical interest conference, ‘Mathematics’, is getting ready for its eighth outing in 2013. Mathematics 2013 focuses on the Mathematics of Planet Earth, an international collaboration, including talks on climate, education, energy and demography. The website expresses a hope that

the audience will have mathematicians, those who work with mathematicians in policy forming roles, and anyone who has an interest in developments in the applications of mathematics.

The conference will take place on Thursday 14 March 2013 at Mary Ward House in London. A programme and registration for the conference are available via the website.
