MathsJam Annual Gathering

The MathsJam Annual Gathering returns in 2018 on the weekend of 17th-18th November. We will again be having talks, fun, games, puzzles, and conversation, and once again we will return to our home for the past few years:

Yarnfield Park
Yarnfield
Stone
Staffordshire
ST15 0NL

Prices have been held at £165.00 for a single delegate, or £250.00 for two delegates sharing a room - twin rooms are available. The full package includes accommodation on Saturday night, all sessions, and all meals from lunch on Saturday to lunch on Sunday. There is a 10% early-bird discount for those who pay before the (as yet unannounced but likely to be early September) deadline, and a further discount of 10% of the full price is available for the unwaged. There are also day rates if you can only come for one day, and there are some additional bursaries available - email for more information.

The talk slides and descriptions from 2017 talks, along with talks from all past gatherings are collated in the archive.

MathsJams are a chance for anyone to join the fun. We have people of all ages, backgrounds, education and ability. All you need is an interest in and enthusiasm for maths of all types.

The program includes:

  • Food and accommodation
  • Lightning talks
  • Generous tea/coffee breaks
  • Time to talk

For more information, use the links to the left to find out about the format, see talk titles and testimonials from previous events, or register your interest for future events. Registering will add you to the mailing list, to be kept up-to-date with any news. Registration is free and commits you to nothing.

A NOTE FROM COLIN WRIGHT

This is effectively a private party being organised by me. I promise I'll treat you fairly, and ask that you do the same. I promise that if you send me money then either the event will run and you'll have a place, or I'll give you your money back.

If you pay and then cancel, I will refund your money if you give me a sensible amount of notice. I will do my best to treat you fairly.

If you don't trust me, don't send me your money!
