Oxford Cambridge Applied Maths Meeting (aka The Woolly Owl)

This event has taken place biennially since 1983. Fifteen-minute talks are given by young researchers. They are judged by two distinguished academics from other institutions who award the winning university the coveted woolly owl.

The stuffed Woolly Owl was made by Joan Cook, an Oxford MI cleaner/tea lady.

The 16th Biennial Oxford/Cambridge Applied Mathematics Meeting was won by Oxford in 2013. The Woolly Owl Trophy remains in the halls of OCIAM in Dartington House.
