The organisers behind the Parliamentary and Scientific SET for Britain competition are making a final call for mathematical sciences (mathematics, statistics and operational research) posters. The competition was covered by StatsLife when it was launched earlier this year (see our news story here).
The competition is for early career researchers such as university research students, postgraduates, research assistants, postdocs, research fellows, newly-appointed lecturers, part-time and mature students. Within mathematical sciences, three posters will be selected to be the winners. First prize (gold award) wins a medal and a cheque for £3000; the second prize (silver award) is a cheque for £2000 and the third prize (bronze award) comprises a cheque for £1000.
Abstracts should be submitted through the official website before 20 December 2013. Successful applicants will be asked in the New Year to develop their abstract into a poster and must be available to present in the House of Commons on Monday 17 March 2014.
