About


Talking Maths in Public is a conference which runs in the UK every two years, for people who work in, or otherwise participate in, communicating mathematics to the public. The event is independently organised, and funded by ticket sales and grants from mathematical institutions.

TMiP is run by an independent committee of people who work in different areas of maths communication, and the event includes workshops provided by expert guests, discussions on varied topics, networking sessions and chances to share ideas and showcase projects.

2017 Event


The first Talking Maths in Public Conference took place at the University of Bath on Friday 1st & Saturday 2nd September 2017.

The event was kindly supported by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, the London Mathematical Society, the University of Bath, and in smaller part by Maths Inspiration, Think Maths, the University of Leeds and the Royal Institution.


Feedback from 2017 attendees:

"Super event[...]! Great network coming together who I'm sure will continue to deliver high quality maths outreach and inspiration. Thank you all for doing this!"

"I genuinely have been inspired and changed by the conference. I feel so lucky to have stumbled upon it and very grateful for those who put it together and those who were so willing to share there knowledge and expertise."

"I go to a lot of conferences (as a teacher who is beginning to think about going part time and starting my own business) and it was by far the best I have been to. I learnt so much - and thought out so much - and am going to go away and explore more as a result of what I learnt/saw at the conference. It will take at least a year (probably more) to make the changes/investigate things as a result of the conference."

"Well done for putting it together at a great bargain price, with a thoughtful programme."
