Manchester Students Research Conference

Hulme Hall
I attended the Mathematics Research Students’ Conference (MRSC) 2008 at Hulme Hall, University of Manchester (pictured above) and manned an IMA stall (pictured below). This was a good event and I met some interesting people, though I wasn’t able to attend any of the talks as I had a report to work on. It was useful to talk to postgraduates, who don’t often self organise in this way as undergraduates often do.

The conference had an interesting focus on accessibility of topics, so that research students would present talks in their research area targetted at those who were not experts in that area. There was also a poster session so that contributors could present a more research-focused view on their work.
