The MathsJam Annual Gathering has been honoured in the past to welcome international visitors from several countries. We like to try to make things as easy as possible, but we are limited as to the support we can offer.
Here is some information.
If you are (or might be) an international visitor and you have any concerns or alternative suggestions concerning anything, please send mailto:email@example.com - we would be happy to hear from you.
Whilst not all international attendees speak languages other than English, and some people living in the UK do speak languages other than English, this is probably as good a place as any to mention that we are accepting talk proposals in languages other than English this year. They will be not be among the 50-ish main talks and will not clash with them. Be aware that you might be offering a talk in a language only you speak. We have no objection to this.
You may submit a non-English talk proposal as well as an English talk proposal. For the moment the way to submit non-English talk proposals is to edit the live document:
TravelMost of our international visitors will be travelling by air, and so that page has information about airports and onward travel. You can also find out more about travelling by train, and about train tickets, always an adventure in the UK.
VisasRegarding visas - we can offer no advice. Requirements vary from country to country and change constantly. We can't research all the options - that's up to you. We can provide documentation stating that the event is happening, but we can't sponsor you, or otherwise give any guarantees.
We believe that you can visit the UK on a visitor visa and then simply attend the gathering, but you'll have to confirm this for yourself.
EU citizens almost certainly need to get passports instead of relying on identity cards being acceptable.
There are some thoughts on providing Language Assistance for anyone who is a little worried about their ability in English. Click that link to find out more.
