The University provides information on travelling to Lancaster. The BMC will principally be based in the George Fox Building (GFX on the campus map).

Financial Support

For UK-based mathematicians with caring duties the LMS has a Caring Supplementary Grant scheme which allows participants to apply for help covering caring costs.

Thanks to support from our partners, we have funding to support the participation of PhD students.  If you wish to be considered for this, please provide the information requested during the registration process.


We are grateful for the financial support from the London Mathematical Society, the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research and Lancaster University. BMC2019 is organised in partnership with the Clay Mathematics Institute.
