BCS Coventry, in conjunction with the IET and IMA present this years Christmas Lecture:
Useful maths you will never use
by Matt Parker
There is useful maths all around us that make our modern lives possible. From rescuing your lost words in text messages to protecting your Facebook profile, we rely on numbers to transmit and protect information every day. In this this highly engaging session, Matt Parker (aka the Standup Mathematician) will open your eyes to the ubiquitous sea of numbers we all live in but don't need to use ourselves.
This event is free to attend, but booking is essential.
The lecture is on the 10th of December at Coventry University. The lecture starts at 19.00, with refreshments available from 18.30. After the lecture there will be a buffet.
Registered guests attending the Christmas Lecture will be sent a permit by email so they may park for free after 18:00 on Wednesday 10th December in the Coventry University Student car park. Please ensure this permit is displayed.

This event is hosted by Coventry University in the Engineering and Computing Building, which lies between Gosford Street and Gulson Road. It has a hexagonal facade and can be found between the Lanchester Library (turretted building) and the Student Centre (curved blue roof).
The EC Building location is shown on Google maps here.
The student car park is accessed from Gulson Road, next to the EC Building. Please ensure you display the permit. From the car park walk anticlockwise around the building until you find the entrance to the courtyard. The main entrance to the building is the rotating door diagonally opposite.
