Wednesday 25th November 2020


The Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information (CCIMI) will hold its annual Industry engagement event virtually on the afternoon of 25th November 2020. This will aim to showcase the research that is being carried out at the Institute and enable delegates to hear more detail about some of the current project collaborations and industry challenges that CCIMI is exploring.

This event follows the previous industry and academic engagement events delivered since 2016 and more information is available on the Gateway initiatives webpage. 

The Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information accommodates research activity on fundamental mathematical problems and methodology for understanding, analysing, processing and simulating data. Data science research performed in the Institute is at the highest international level, aiming to extract the relevant information from large and high-dimensional data with a predictable certainty. For more detailed information on projects, please see the CCIMI website.

Aims and Objectives

The main focus of this afternoon industrial engagement event is to provide an update on research and collaborations taking place at the CCIMI, as well as presenting interesting research being developed elsewhere. Speakers will look to explore the big questions in data science, especially where mathematics is most suited to help provide answers.  It will include a virtual poster session where CCIMI students will present their research, followed by the opportunity to talk more in separate break out rooms. 

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

The Programme is being developed and we anticipate that the event will run from 12.30 – 17.00.


Attendance is free of charge and to register, please follow the link above.

The workshop will be hosted virtually by the Newton Gateway to Mathematics and the joining instructions will be circulated prior to the event.
