To encourage the participation of female researchers, The Alan Turing Institute is offering scholarships to cover the travel and accommodation expenses for four female participants, to the value of  £600.To apply for this funding, please get in touch with the following information by 7 July:
– a short CV (no more than two A4 pages)
– a short statement (no more than 150 words) describing your motivation to participate in the summer school






Registration is now closed.

Stud DSC_0768 (1)This summer school will focus on mathematical foundations of inverse problems, at the interface of applied mathematics, statistics and data science.

The main aims of the school are to expose the participants to important mathematical concepts and related computational and algorithmic challenges, and to ensure that early career researchers obtain a solid background in some of the mathematical aspects of inverse problems, and the related areas of uncertainty quantification and data assimilation.

This workshop is suitable for PhD students and early career researchers with a maths-based degree.
