The Cambridge University Ethics in Mathematics Society (CUEiMS) is here to help mathematicians recognise the ethical questions that can arise when doing mathematics. By hosting lectures, talks, and discussions we hope to give mathematicians some of the insight and tools that they will need to deal with ethical issues in their work. We hold our weekly seminar on Tuesdays at 16:30 in MR4 . Before each seminar we serve tea and biscuits, starting at 16:00 (MR4). All are welcome to join us for some friendly discussion.
