Keio University, 15-20 July 2012


The UK-Japan Winter Schools have been held since 1999 in the UK. Every year the focus is on a special topic. The aim of the School is to bring together Japanese and UK scientists, in particular also young researchers and students from mathematics and mathematical physics, in a relaxing and stimulating atmosphere. To celebrate the success of the UK-Japan Winter Schools we organise this year a special UK-Japan Mathematical Forum in Japan. This event was scheduled for March 2011, but needed to be postponed as a consequence of the earthquake on 11 March 2011.

List of UK-Japan Winter Schools held in the UK:

1999: Differential Geometry
2000: Harmonic Maps
2001: Ergodic Theory
2003: Stochastic Partial Differential Equations
2004: Geometry and Analysis Towards Quantum Theory
2005: Geometric, Spectral, and Stochastic Analysis
2006: Dynamics and Arithmetics
2007: Number Theory
2008: Algebraic and Symplectic Geometry
2009: Dynamics and Complexity
2010: Integrable Systems and Symmetry
2011: New Methods in Geometry
2012: String Theory, Geometry, and Mathematical Physics

UK-JAPAN WINTER SCHOOLS FOUNDATION: The UK-Japan Winter Schools have been fortunate to receive financial support from various organizations and research foundations over the past ten years. To build on this, and to provide a stable source of supplementary funding in the future, the organizers welcome donations of any amount from individuals and institutions. This funding will be used primarily to support the participation of students and other young researchers in these winter schools. If you have suggestions about other organisations which might be willing to give support, or are interested in making a donation yourself, please contact any member of the current organizing committee or scientific advisory committee. Payments may be made by UK cheque or international bank transfer. Cheques should be made payable to "UK-Japan Winter Schools".

We are grateful for financial support from the various universities who hosted the UK-Japan Winter Schools and for support from the following organizations:
British Council Japan
Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation
Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation
