*WIMP*

I am the founder and ex-Warwick organiser of an undergraduate/masters'/early PhD level conference series held jointly between Warwick and IMPerial. The first local organiser for Imperial was Edwin Kutas. We have now both been succeeded as WIMP lives on! The premise is that WIMP will cultivate a research conference-esque environment encouraging dissemination of both original and well-studied ideas and, above all, appreciation of compelling mathematics at the higher undergraduate level.

This is not a conference concerning WIMPs or WIMP.
