MathsJam 2022 - Weekend of November 19/20

Planning is underway ... bookings not yet open.

MathsJam Bookings 2021
(so far ...)

We tested the booking system on Nov 9th and 10th, and then made the bookings available on Nov 11th.

Still working on automating this, but I haven't found how to get the chart out of EventBrite without doing it by hand.

MathsJam Bookings 2020

Technically, in practice, we don't have a limit on the number of delegates, but also in practice, if we have too many people (for some definition of "too many") we won't get the serendipitous "bumping into people" that we have in the current event.

So we might want to limit the number of delegates, although we're not sure what that limit should be.

From here, here are some pages you might like to visit:

Bookings Chart
from 2019

We had a limit of about 200 delegates. The chart shows that limit as is a straight line against which we could compare the rate of room reservations and confirmations.

And thanks to a chance remark by one delegate I will now forever think of this as "The Graph of Doom". Exactly whose doom is not quite clear ...

Bookings Chart
from 2018

You can see pretty clearly in the early stages of this chart how registration was first made available to people who had been before, and they immediately registered and made their reservation. You can also see that the general announcement was made on day T minus 165, which is where registrations took off, but the rate of room reservations remained fairly constant.

More recently, at about T minus 75 days, there has been a surge in payments as people return from holidays to find the emails reminding them. No doubt there will be another surge with each MathsJam missive.
