The 2021 Global Online Celebration will start as March 14 begins in Oceania and end 48 hours later at the end of March 14. It will consist in liveblogging pictures and videos from IDM events worldwide, posters, announcements and more. Posting can be done on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, using the hashtag #idm314.

The main event will be a series of short online talks for a general audience on mathematics and how it can make the world better. There will be three sessions in three different languages: English, French, and Spanish. The talks will be streamed live through the IDM website completely free and without any need to sign up. It will take place from 14:00 UTC to 18:05 UTC. Here is the Program of the main event:

It is still possible to post IDM celebrations, including classroom celebrations on the IDM website.

Mathematics Winter School

22/02/2021 — 26/02/2021

@ Online

The Mathematics Winter School (WSM) 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.

Iberian Strings 2021

19/01/2021 — 22/01/2021

The Iberian Strings 2021 meeting is the twelfth meeting of the Iberian Strings series, superseding previous editions of the Workshop on Gravitational Aspects of Strings and Branes and of Northwest Strings. These meetings bring together a large part of the string theory community of Spain and Portugal with the aim of discussing and sharing recent advances in the field of strings and branes. However, all string theorists working elsewhere too are highly welcome to participate in the meeting.

Iberian Strings 2021 will be an online conference.
