IMA Leslie Fox Prize Meeting

The IMA Leslie Fox Prize meeting will take place on Monday June 26th, 2017, in Room JA317 in the John Anderson building, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow G1 1XH, Scotland, just prior to the 27th Biennial Conference on Numerical Analysis.


There is no fee charged to those wishing to attend the prize meeting; tradition has it that this is a set of excellent talks by some exciting young people in Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing. All are encouraged to attend! In particular it is extremely easy for delegates of the Biennial Conference to include the extra day prior to the start of the conference to attend the Fox Prize meeting. Please email Andy.Wathen@maths.ox.ac.uk to let us know if you are planning to attend so that we can order sufficient coffee and tea.



The prize meeting is supported financially by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Strathclyde. We are delighted to acknowledge that a number of leading publishers are supplementing the prizes with some of their excellent mathematical publications:
