Locate in map@ Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisboa, Portugal

This meeting, whose scope comprises Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations and related topics, aims to promote integration of researchers of both IST and IME (and other institutions), with the presentation of research works and plenary lectures of the participants.

This edition will honor Giorgio Fusco, who has been a major contributor to the IST-IME link.

School on Mirror Symmetry and Moduli Spaces

IberiCOS 2020 — 15th Iberian Cosmology Meeting

06/04/2020 — 08/04/2020

Locate in map@ Departamento de Física, Universidade de Coimbra

The meeting has been postponed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2020 edition of the Iberian Cosmology Meeting (IberiCOS 2020) will be held at the University of Coimbra. This series of meetings is aimed at encouraging the interaction and collaboration between researchers working in Cosmology and related areas in Portugal and Spain. Researchers working in other countries are also most welcome.

These meetings are designed to encourage the presentation of work in progress. In this same spirit, the meetings will not be restricted to a single focused topic, but are open to cosmologists in the broadest sense, from mathematical cosmology and theoretical particle physics to observational astrophysics. Stimulating interactions between theorists and observers is also a particular concern of the organisers.

Ana Bela Cruzeiro elected corresponding member of the Lisbon Academy of Sciences


The Lisbon Academy of Sciences elected Professor Ana Bela Cruzeiro as a national corresponding member in the Class of Sciences (Mathematics).

It is the fourth time this title is granted to a professor of the Department of Mathematics of IST (Luís Torres Magalhães, 1995; Rui Loja Fernandes, 2006; Adélia Sequeira, 2018).

Ricardo Schiappa on Antena 1 programme 90 Seconds of Science


In episode 773 of 90 Seconds of Science (in Portuguese), Ricardo Schiappa talks about the mathematical research of his group, directed to study the basic elements that build the geometry and topology of our universe.

Mathematics Winter School

05/02/2020 — 06/02/2020

Locate in map@ Sala P12, Pavilhão de Matemática, Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisboa

The Mathematics Winter School (MWS) is designed to help students from the first or 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 from the first or second cycle of university studies, from IST or other schools, students of mathematics or not.
