The launch of the EPSRC/SFC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT), the Maxwell Institute Graduate School in Mathematical Analysis and its Applications (MIGSAA), took place on Wednesday 25th February 2015 at ICMS, South College Street.
The event featured some wonderful speakers including some of our own MIGSAA students. Special guests Sir Tam Dalyell and Chair of the Advisory Board Allan Colquhoun were present to hear the presentations from Director Prof Tony Carbery and a number of distinguished guests.
We were fortunate to receive support from throughout University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University as well as a number of external bodies including our industrial partners. Distinguished mathematicians Keith Ball and David Abrahams, the immediate past and present Scientific Directors of ICMS, spoke on the day to an audience comprised of mathematicians and scientists from the university community as well as some special guests. The lecture theatre was full to bursting point!
Many thanks to all who contributed to make this event such a success.
