Welcome to the icebreaker event for Early Career Mathematicians (ECM) at the BAMC 2024, sponsored by the ECM Committee of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA). This is the third icebreaker event at the BAMC, after successful and enjoyable events at Loughborough in 2022 and Bristol in 2023. This year we are hosting the event in The Frederick Douglas Centre the evening before the BAMC begins. Feedback we, the Committee, have 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. With this is mind, forming contacts and groups is what we want to facilitate at this event. The event will start with a short opening speech about the BAMC (and ECMs) from one of the Organising Committee, explaining 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. Registration Registration is now open. Registration will close on the 3rd of April 2024.
