Welcome to the icebreaker event for Early Career Mathematicians (ECM) at the BAMC 2023, sponsored by the ECM Committee of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA). We had a fantastic time last year at Loughborough, so much so that we are going to run the same event in Bristol. We are hosting the event at Design West, right in the city centre of Bristol, the evening before the BAMC begins.

Feedback we, the Committee, received from our members is that networking and forming contacts with others at conferences can be daunting. In the instances that a group of friends has been formed, they have said that the enjoyability of the conference improves significantly. So, forming contacts and groups is what we want to facilitate at this event. We will start the event with quick opening speeches about the BAMC (and ECMs) from one of the Organising Committee and who the ECM Committee are and what they do for the IMA. Then we will start the activities, which include: • Knowing me, knowing you • Mathematical Taboo • Celebrity Cameo • Mathematical Headbandz • Shakespeare's Radio

Refreshments will be supplied and you are welcome to join the ECM Committee for an informal dinner after the event.
