Young Researchers in Mathematics 2009

Back in conference season, I attended the Young Researchers in Mathematics conference at Cambridge (AKA Beyond Part III). This was my first time in Cambridge and it was good to see the maths building, of which I have heard a lot during my travels. Unfortunately, when I got there it appeared someone had parked a spaceship on top of it (picture below).

This conference was the product of an exciting new initiative to bring together young mathematics researchers and was a vibrant inaugural conference. The organisers are to be congratulated. The Young Researchers in Mathematics is an ongoing initiative. From the website:

We exist to promote links between graduate mathematician communities at universities across the UK, and facilitate the organisation of conferences, workshops and social events for young mathematicians.

The conference was part-sponsored by the IMA and so I ran a stall at the event (pictured below) and spent a good amount of time mingling.
