## School on Mirror Symmetry and Moduli Spaces

15/06/2020

@ Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisboa, Portugal

The purpose of this Workshop-School to bring together researchers working on different mirror symmetry phenomena occuring in moduli spaces. Along with cutting-edge research talks, there will be four introductory mini courses addressed to students and young researchers in differential geometry, algebraic geometry, theoretical physics and related areas.

## Workshop on Black Holes: BPS, BMS and Integrability.

09/09/2020 — 11/09/2020

@ P3.10, Mathematics Building, Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisboa, Portugal

The workshop brings together researchers to facilitate collaborative discussions on current developments in quantum gravity and string theory.

Organizers: Gabriel Lopes Cardoso, Suresh Nampuri.

## IberiCOS 2020 — 15th Iberian Cosmology Meeting

06/04/2020 — 08/04/2020

@ Departamento de Física, Universidade de Coimbra

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.

## Patrícia Gonçalves in Tempo das Dálias

14/01/2020

The January 14 radio program *No Tempo das Dálias* by journalist Paula Castelar is about Patrícia Gonçalves (in Portuguese).

## Ricardo Schiappa on Antena 1 programme *90 Seconds of Science*

22/01/2020

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

@ 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.

## 9^{th} IST Lectures on Algebraic Geometry and Physics

03/02/2020 — 05/02/2020

@ Sala P3.10, Pavilhão de Matemática, Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisboa

The IST Lectures on Algebraic Geometry and Physics started in 1999 and target the bridging of gaps between exciting new areas of Algebraic Geometry and Physics.

The 2020 speakers are Jean-Pierre Ramis and Philip Boalch.

**Random Loops**

A "rubber band" constrained to remain on a manifold evolves by trying to shorten its length, eventually settling on a closed geodesic, or collapsing entirely. It is natural to try to consider a noisy version of such a model where each segment of the band gets pulled in random directions. Trying to build such a model turns out to be surprisingly difficult and generates a number of nice insights, as well as some beautiful algebraic and analytical objects. We will survey some of the main results obtained on the way to this construction.
