Geometry, Stochastics, & Dynamics

Celebrating 20 years of UK-Japan Winter Schools

11-15 May 2020

Due to the current global situation with coronavirus, and following the advice and guidelines of both the UK and Japanese governments, we have postponed this meeting. We are looking into holding it in May or June of 2021. We hope that anyone who has already booked travel or accommodation will be able to receive full refunds, from hotels/airlines or insurance (based on the the grounds of government advice not to travel). Please note that registration is currently suspended.

Organisers: Jürgen Berndt (King’s College London), John Bolton (Durham University), David Elworthy (University of Warwick), Martin Guest (Waseda University), Xue-Mei Li (Imperial College London), Yoshiaki Maeda (Tohoku University)

The celebration will include one hour talks by distinguished mathematicians from Japan and the UK. These will expose the latest research developments and open topics in the area of the speakers and their wider impact. Together with these, there will be a full programme of shorter talks especially highlighting work of young researchers from both countries by giving them the opportunity to present their work. It will run from approximately 10am on Monday to approximately 12 noon on Friday at the Warwick Mathematics Institute.

There will be opportunities for participants to display posters on their research. If you wish to do so please contact Alison Humphries at by 29th April 2020.

Participants are asked to register using the link at the side of this page; this is for catering purposes and also to request campus accommodation or reserved parking if you are attending during the day and not in campus accommodation.

On Friday evening, 17:30-19:30, there will be two public lectures in London, one given by Martin Hairer (Imperial), at the Japanese Embassy. Registration for this event is required, though free. Details and registration can be found at
