Essential coronavirus update for INI activities

Publication Date: 
Tuesday 21st April 2020 - 10:30

The Isaac Newton Institute temporarily closed its doors on Friday 20 March in response to the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19).  All staff are currently working remotely.

We have taken the decision to cancel all events until the end of August 2020.  In the coming months, we shall review our activities scheduled beyond September, but at present we are planning for their running as normal.

In the interim, the Isaac Newton Institute and the Newton Gateway to Mathematics, in collaboration with International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS) and the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), are hosting a variety of virtual activities including webinars, virtual study groups and a virtual long-term programme.

Please note that some pre-scheduled automated emails (including for instance request for confirmation of attendance at workshops that have been cancelled) are still being generated.  We apologise in advance if you receive such an email and ask you to ignore it.
