The spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has presented great challenges for organisations such as the Newton Gateway as activity takes place with those from industry and academia from across the globe and for whom collaboration is a regular and important part of their working lives. 
We continue to work remotely. Events that were to take place physically have been rescheduled and are now taking place virtually. Some were moved to 2021 and we hope that some will be able to take place semi virtually or physically. We continue discussions with our partners about the arrangements for these events and continue to plan for additional upcoming activities. 
Please do keep in touch and let us know if you have any questions - either direct to one of the Gateway team or via our main email address.
Also, please read the update from David Abrahams, Director of INI which was posted on 7th May 2020. 

Virtual Forum for Knowledge Exchange in the Mathematical Sciences

The Newton Gateway to Mathematics, Isaac Newton Institute (INI), International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS) and Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) are working with various representatives from the mathematical sciences community to develop a virtual forum for knowledge exchange in the mathematical sciences.
The main aim is to identify a range of virtual approaches that will help address challenges from business and industry, the third sector, and other groups outside academia. These challenges may be long-standing or may have arisen directly as a consequence of the present disruption to UK society.

Upcoming Events

Evolutionary Implications of the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

Monday 19th April 2021 to Tuesday 20th April 2021

This workshop will focus on the use of quantitative modelling approaches to understand the evolutionary implications of vaccination programmes. Such approaches are key to developing optimal vaccination strategies and understanding which subgroups in society should be prioritised for vaccination against COVD-19.

Environmental and Aerosol Transmission of COVID-19

Monday 26th April 2021 to Wednesday 28th April 2021

Building on the work begun by RAMP, this three-day science meeting will review existing work and identify where further research is most urgently needed. The meeting will include a standalone public-facing component providing an accessible overview of the latest science, alongside scientific talks and discussion sessions targeting active researchers.

5th Edwards Symposium - Future Directions in Soft Matter

Wednesday 8th September 2021 to Friday 10th September 2021
Centre for Mathematical Sciences

A key aim of the Edwards Symposium Series is to highlight the latest developments in soft matter science with a particular (but not exclusive) emphasis on theoretical and mathematical models, and on how these models can inform industrial processes, materials, and design. Leading academic speakers convey their latest scientific work, aiming to foster collaborative and interdisciplinary discussions across the industry/academia boundary.

Past Events

UK Graduate Modelling Camp

Monday 29th March 2021 to Wednesday 31st March 2021

A key aim of the modelling camp was to provide participants with experience of mathematical modelling under the guidance of experienced instructors and mentors. The challenges that students worked on at the camp were inspired by real-world challenges that have arisen in industry or science. Starting with presentations from the mentors, the participants then formed teams to work on each problem.

Unlocking Data Streams

Tuesday 16th March 2021

Our experience of the world is multimodal and understanding multimodal data streams (complex sequences of data from different sources), is a key challenge of rough path theory and more generally for data science. This workshop aimed to increase awareness of the research and applications being undertaken by the DataSıg team. The Programme sought to further develop signature-based mathematical tools for dealing with complex streamed data, and connect with partners who have the capability and the challenges to benefit from and achieve significant outcomes with the methodology.

The study groups provide an outstanding way for us to engage with the academic community. The key is that the study groups engage a wide range of individuals who actively work on a problem. As a result of this approach we can gain much deeper insights than we could by working alone, or even by holding a workshop. By the end of a study group we have usually made real progress in our understanding. That could mean identifying that a particular solution is a dead end. It could mean that we have an actual working solution. Or it could mean that we have scoped out useful future research, so we can focus our efforts in the areas will it make the most difference.
