This conference will take place on 16-18 November 2022

It will precede the biennial Forum Mathematics for Industry FMfI2022 to be held at the same location 21-24 November 2022. For more information about the Forum visit

Both the Conference and Forum will presented in hybrid mode. Attendees are encouraged to consider attending both events to receive the maximum benefit and in-person attendance is also encouraged.

See below for registration closing dates.


Deterministic modellers and statisticians have a lot to be gained by working as a team in which both types of approaches are used. The combination of statistics and classical dynamics has long been a fertile field, tracing back to statistical mechanics from the end of the 19th century and stochastic differential equations from the 1920s. The need to combine the two modelling approaches has never been greater and neither has the opportunity for affordable high-performance computation. During the COVID-19 pandemic, agreement has been found between agent-based models and differential compartment equations in modelling infection numbers. Each approach gives confidence to the other, and this suggests scope for new hybrid models.
