IMA Mathematics 2021 Online Series
25 May 2021, Online Event via Zoom

For a number of years, the IMA has been running a series of
conferences to promote mathematics with the aim of demonstrating to
both mathematicians and non-mathematicians the many uses of modern
mathematics. Following last summer's very successful IMA Mathematics
2020 series collaboration with the Newton Gateway to Mathematics, we
are pleased to announce two events for 2021 taking place on 6 and 25
May. On Tuesday 25 May, we will have two talks which feature the work
of V-KEMS (Virtual Forum for Knowledge Exchange in Mathematical
Sciences). Presentations will feature the work of two very successful
virtual study groups, which ran earlier this year, on Reducing the
Risk of Covid-19 Transmission on Trains and Modelling Solutions to the
Impact of COVID-19 on Cardiovascular Waiting Lists. (See the event
page for further details).

Programme - 25 May (Full Abstracts can be found at our website)
10.00-10.10 Matt Butchers (KTN), Introduction to V-KEMS

Submission deadline: August 24, 2021

Innovative global optimization approaches have attracted many research
scientists, decision makers, managers, executives, engineers,
academicians, officers, policy makers and practicing researchers in
recent years as powerful intelligent computational techniques for
solving many complex real-world application problems. The
International Conference on Intelligent Computing and Optimization
(ICO'2021) highlights the latest research innovations and applications
of algorithms designed for optimization applications within the fields
of Science, Computer Science, Engineering, Information Technology,
Management, Finance, Business and Economics. Focusing on a variety of
methods and systems as well as practical examples, this conference is
a significant resource for post graduate-level students, decision
makers, and researchers in both public and private sectors who are
seeking research-based methods for modeling uncertain and
unpredictable real-world problems.
