Welcome to the “1st BYMAT Conference: Bringing Young Mathematicians Together". This conference aims to:

  • Strengthen the links between PhD students in mathematics across all disciplines.
  • Provide an open space so researchers in the early stages of their career can present their work to peers of similar experience.
  • Enhance the communication skills of young mathematicians.
  • Encourage researchers of different institutions to start building a network of contacts soon into their careers.
  • Showcase the broad range of career options available for a mathematics PhD graduate in and outside of academia.


Some specific goals are:

  • The conference is especially directed at PhD students, master’s students and advanced undergraduates, though anyone else who is interested is more than welcome to attend.
  • Contributed talks will come mainly from PhD students.


We will have short talks (20-25 minutes), distributed in thematic parallel sessions, as well as 5 plenary talks, given by postdocs and young professors, two skills workshops and a Q&A session about “Life after a PhD in Maths”. The official language of the conference will be English. Registration is now closed.
