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


The Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information (CCIMI) were pleased to announce its fifth annual academic conference, which focused on the academic advances in the mathematics of information.

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

Aims and Objectives

The conference brought together those academics working to advance data science and provided an update on the research and collaborations taking place at CCIMI specifically related to understanding and modelling the Coronavirus pandemic and associated challenges. Additionally, it highlighted other potential collaborative opportunities, as well as projects being developed elsewhere related to data analysis.

There was a session of short “elevator pitches” from next generation researchers as well as a poster session by some registered delegates.A prize for the most enlightening poster by an ECR was awarded to Paolo Campodonico.

This event was 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.

Registration and Venue

Registration of this event is now closed.

Talks were aimed at academics, and a mathematical background was assumed, however, attendees from industry and the public sector were welcomed.
