Welcome to ICMS
ICMS supports research in the mathematical sciences. Its core activity is the development and organisation of international workshops and conferences in all areas of mathematics and these attract leading mathematical scientists from the UK and overseas. The Overview of ICMS section of this site contains information about our aims, management structure and gender balance policy.
In addition to workshops, ICMS is involved in a number of other mathematical activities such as small group research programmes, postgraduate training, journal management and outreach. Details of current and past projects are available in the Other Activities section. ICMS also hosts events organised by other mathematical and related organisations. The ICMS Full Calendar lists all workshops, other activities and hosted events.
The Scientific Director of ICMS is Professor Paul Glendinning.
The headquarters of ICMS is at 15 South College Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9AA.
ICMS is wholly owned by Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh. It is funded by its parent universities and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council of the UK with additional support from the London Mathematical Society.

ICMS welcomes proposals for workshops and Research in Groups (RiGs) activities in all aspects of mathematical sciences and interdisciplinary areas with significant mathematical content. Workshop proposals are considered by the Programme Committtee twice yearly. Proposal deadlines are
- the last day of October in order to be considered in February;
- the last day of March in order to be considered in June.
RiGs enables researchers to spend a short period in intensive research collaboration at ICMS, away from teaching and administration. RiGs proposals will be considered by the Programme Committee throughout the year.
Full details on all programmes are in our Call for Proposals section.
