A Research Conference of the Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information


The Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information (CCIMI) is pleased to announce its third annual academic conference, which will focus on the academic interactions taking place related to Geometric and Topological Approaches to Data Analysis.

Launched in 2016, CCIMI accommodates research activity on fundamental mathematical problems and methodology for understanding, analysing, processing and simulating data. Data science research performed in the Institute is of the highest international level, aiming to extract the relevant information from large and high-dimensional data with a predictable certainty.

This event follows previous successful academic and industrial engagement events, which focused on different aspects related to the mathematics of information.

Aims and Objectives

This one day conference will bring together those academics working to advance data science and will provide an update on the research and collaborations taking place at CCIMI, associated challenges and other potential collaborative opportunities, as well as highlighting projects being developed elsewhere related to data analysis.

The talks will cover:

  • Diffeomorphic Learning
  • Data Analysis
  • Geometric Inverse Problems
  • Sampling with Confidence
  • Optimal Transport in Data Sciences
  • Nonlocal Inverse Problems.

There will be a session for short “elevator pitches” from next generation researchers, who will also have the opportunity to present more detail about their work in a poster exhibition, which will run during the lunch and the drinks/networking session. 

This event will be of interest to participants including social scientists; physicists; engineers; biomedical scientists as well as those working in statistics; pure, applied and computational analysis; quantum computing; cryptography; communication and security;  and those from data processing.


There will be a poster exhibition running alongside the workshop and during the drinks reception. Students and early career researchers (within 7 years of completing their last degree) are particularly encouraged to bring a poster and discuss their work during the networking sessions. A prize will be awarded for the most enlightening poster by a student/ early career researcher. 
If you would like to submit a poster please indicate this on the registration form.

Registration and Venue

Attendance is free of charge. To register and for further information, please follow the registration link in the left hand panel.

Talks will be aimed at academics, and a mathematical background will be assumed, however, attendees from industry and the public sector are welcomed. 

The workshop will take place at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge.

Please see the Centre for Mathematical Sciences website for further information about the venue.

Please note that the event is not being held at the Isaac Newton Institute as in previous years.
