Event description

Description

Each year in May we run a history of mathematics conference at Birkbeck, organised by the British Society for the History of Mathematics (BSHM), and supported by the Department of Economics, Mathematics and Statistics at Birkbeck.

The 2020 event will look at the history of Decision Mathematics. We are planning talks on a range of subjects from the history of decision problems on graphs, to linear programming, to the well-known "P versus NP" problem. The event will be held in the main Birkbeck building on Torrington Square. You can download a map here. Rooms will be assigned nearer the time.

Registration is £5.50 for students, £11 for BSHM members and Birkbeck staff, and £22 for non-members.

This will include tea/coffee and biscuits at break times, but not lunch, as we wanted to keep the registration fee to a minimum. There are numerous places to eat within easy walking distance of Birkbeck, including a coffee shop that sells sandwiches and snacks within Birkbeck itself. We will list some suggestions in the programme, which you will be sent in good time before the event.

(Incidentally, BSHM membership is only £35, with a concesssionary rate of £20 for retired, unwaged or student members. If you are under the age of 25 membership is even cheaper, at just £5 for the year! So just attending a handful of events a year could save you that membership fee - join here!)


The programme is still being finalised, but registration will be from 9:45am, with talks starting at 10:15. The day will finish by 5pm.

Note: We need to finalise numbers for catering 7 days before the event, so unfortunately refunds cannot be issued after this time.
