About John H. Conway:

In his career, Conway made significant contributions to mathematics in the fields of group theory, number theory, algebra, geometric topology, theoretical physics, combinatorial game theory and geometry. Conway received the Berwick Prize (1971), was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society (1981), became a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1992, was the first recipient of the Pólya Prize (LMS) (1987), won the Nemmers Prize in Mathematics (1998) and received the Leroy P. Steele Prize for Mathematical Exposition (2000) of the American Mathematical Society.

John Conway Spirited Seminar Series:

John Conway Spirited Seminar series started in 2021 by the Department of Mathematics at Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering-LUMS, Pakistan. These seminars are meant for providing the opportunity to mathematicians from all over the World to get indulged in productive discussions on recently evolved theories, expositions and researches. These seminars are purposefully kept online (through Zoom) to avoid the limitations of logistics of inviting a speaker from the mathematically developed World and provide a latitude to researchers and students to gain benefit from these seminars. All the seminars are recorded with the prior consent of the speaker and these recorded talks are made available on this webpage. We strongly believe that staying connected with the recent development through seminars is highly important for the researchers living in third world nations, like Pakistan. Though John Conway never visited Pakistan, it is an endeavor to live his spirited enthusiasm for promoting mathematics. A humble tribute to his grand legacy and spirited attitude of promoting mathematical discussions. We invite all mathematicians, young researcher and students to these seminars. You may get all the recordings and updates on upcoming talks on this website.
