Workskop on Operator Theory, Complex Analysis, and Applications 2018 / WOTCA 2018

25/06/2018 — 28/06/2018

@ Universidade do Minho, Guimarães, Portugal

The Workskop on Operator Theory, Complex Analysis, and Applications 2018 / WOTCA 2018 aims to bring together researchers working in Operator Theory, Complex Analysis, and their applications, namely in Mathematical Physics, and to create an opportunity to highlight the current state of the art in these fields, present open problems and engage in fruitful discussions.

To foster contact between leading mathematicians and younger ones, a gong and poster parallel meeting, YRFAMP'18-Young Researchers in Functional Analysis and Mathematical Physics, will be held in the context of the workshop.

This meeting follows the line of six previous workshops, WOTCA 2010, WOTCA 2012, 2-Day OTCA 2013, WOTCA 2014, WOTCA 2016 and WOTCA 2017.

Mathematics Winter School

06/02/2018 — 08/02/2018

The Mathematics Winter School (MWS) is designed to help students from the first or beginning second cycle of university studies find fascinating study options. Mathematicians, from university and industry, are going to talk about mathematics, its applications, mathematical research, and mathematics in the real word, in an environment where students will have time and space to look, listen and think ahead.

The MWS is open to all interested students, at the end of the first cycle of studies or at the beginning of the second cycle, from IST or other schools, students of mathematics or not. Students from outside the Lisbon area may apply for financial support.
