The University of Manchester is proud to host the SIAM UKIE National Student Chapter Conference in 2019. The conference will be a two-day event, on Monday 10th and Tuesday 11th June, consisting of 4 plenary talks, contributed talks by students and a poster session.

Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors we can offer a limited number of hardship bursaries to help attend the SNSCC. Speakers will be allocated a sum of £100 while those presenting posters will be allocated a sum of £50. These bursaries can be applied for during the registration process and all hardship fund money left over will be divided amongst the student speakers.

The cost of the conference meal will be £18 and £20 for the vegetarian and non-vegetarian option, respectively, which can be paid for during the registration process.
