@ online

The International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) is the largest conference for mathematics. ICMs are run every four years by the International Mathematical Union in partnership with host country organizers. The Fields Medals, the Gauss Prize, and the Chern Medal are awarded during the congress's opening ceremony.

ICM 2022 will take place as a virtual event, on July 6–14.

Patrícia Gonçalves is an invited speaker in the Probability (Section 12) session.

Encontro Conjunto Brasil-Portugal em Matemática

14/08/2022 — 20/08/2022

@ Universidade Federal da Bahia, Salvador - Bahia

O Encontro Conjunto Brasil-Portugal em Matemática, a decorrer de 14 a 20 de Agosto de 2022 na Universidade Federal da Bahia, em Salvador - Bahia, marca o Bicentenário da Independência do Brasil.

Este evento realiza-se em Salvador, a primeira capital do Brasil (1549-1763), e celebra a intensificação da cooperação científica na área e a efeméride da independência, com o objetivo lançar as bases para um novo estágio de colaboração bilateral, ainda mais ambicioso, na área de matemática.

8th IST-IME Meeting

05/09/2022 — 09/09/2022

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.

Workshop Fuchsian Differential Equations

11/05/2022 — 15/05/2022

@ Department of Mathematics, Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon

Fuchsian Differential Equations are ordinary linear equations typically with polynomial coefficients. As such they are susceptible to algebraic and arithmetic methods. 

For instance, their behaviour under reduction modulo a prime $p$ is still full of mysteries and unsolved conjectures. 

We will approach the topic in a very accessible and explicit manner, looking at concrete examples, computational aspects, various conjectures, and a comparison of main techniques.  

Organizer:  Herwig Hauser, Faculty of Mathematics, University of Vienna 

Bronze medal for IST/LMAC students at the SWERC 2021-2022 programming contest


@ Milão

A team of three IST/Applied Mathematics and Computation (LMAC) students - David Nassauer, Pedro Dias, and Rui Zhu Wang - won a bronze medal at the South West European Regional Contest (SWERC) 2021-2022.

SWERC is a programming contest focused on algorithmic problem solving and practical coding. It is open to teams from France, Israel, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland. SWERC serves as the regional selection phase for the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC).

The 2020-2021 edition was organized by Politecnico di Milano and took place on April 23rd-24th in Milan. Outlaws (David Nassauer, Pedro Dias, and Rui Zhu Wang) ranked 12th among 97 teams from 49 institutions. Congratulations to Outlaws!

Lisbon Young Mathematicians Conference 2022 (LYMC2022) is a conference directed for Postdocs, PhD and Master students of Lisbon Universities. PhD and Master students will present short communications about their current research work.

The participation of prominent invited speakers will strongly contribute to the enrichment of knowledge, inspiring the young researchers.

The meeting intends to create an atmosphere conducive to sharing experiences and ideas among the young researchers, increasing their scientific background, to facilitate novel breakthroughs.

Participation is free of charge, but registration is mandatory.

Workshop on Operator Theory, Complex Analysis, and Applications 2022 / WOTCA 2022

20/06/2022 — 24/06/2022

@ Universidade do Algarve, Faro, Portugal

The Workshop on Operator Theory, Complex Analysis, and Applications 2022 / WOTCA 2022 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.

This meeting follows eight previous WOTCA workshops.
