The aim of this conference is to promote, explore and disseminate emerging good practice and research findings in Mathematics and Statistics support, teaching, learning and assessment. The conference will appeal to all those teaching Mathematics, Statistics or Numeracy, whether this is to specialist mathematics students or students studying components of mathematics within their degree programmes (such as bioscience, chemistry, computer science, economics, engineering, nursing, physics, psychology, social work, etc).

In November 2012, CBI published a report entitled First Steps – the first aspiration of which is Better education should be our over-riding long-term priority.  The 2013 conference will explore ways in which learning and teaching in MSOR in higher education can contribute to this aspiration within a rapidly changing environment.

Our keynote speakers are Dr Chris Sangwin School of Mathematics University of Birmingham, Professor Jeff Griffiths Professor of Operational Research, Cardiff University and David Youdan IMA, There will also be a plenary session presented by students currently completing internships at  4 universities.

The Speaker at the Conference Dinner will be Rob Eastaway who will explore the tricky subject of how to be a mathematician and not be avoided at parties…..
