Geometrias’19: Polyhedra and Beyond

05/09/2019 — 07/09/2019 Department of Mathematics of the Faculty of Sciences of Porto’s University, Portugal Locate in map

The International Conferences Geometrias are organized by the Portuguese Association of Geometry and Drawing Teachers (Aproged) that aim to bring together academics, artists, researchers, scientists and students to share their investigations and practical experiments related to the leitmotiv of each edition, that is closely connected to Geometry through a broad panorama of topics.

In 2019, Geometrias will be held in the Department of Mathematics of the Faculty of Sciences of Porto’s University with the intent of fostering interdisciplinary discussions and connections between theoretical researches and practical studies on polyhedra and geometric structures and its applications in architecture, arts, computer science, crystallography, design, education, engineering, mathematics, materials science and other related fields of study, that we believe might enrich each other and renew common interests on these subjects through networks of common inspirations. In addition to the papers and posters' sessions and the six plenary lectures of notable Keynote Speakers, there will be a Session dedicated to different Workshops with hands-on activities.  
We invite academics, artists, researchers, scientists and students to participate in the Call for Abstracts occurring between 15 October 2018 and 15 March 2019, submitting, through EasyChair, an extended abstract on investigations or practices addressing the conference's theme: Polyhedra and Beyond.

Alfio Quarteroni is  Professor of Numerical Analysis at  Politecnico di Milano (Italy) and Director of MOX. He is the founder of MOX at Politecnico di Milano (2002), the founder of MATHICSE at EPFL, Lausanne (2010), the co-founder (and President) of MOXOFF, a spin-off company at Politecnico di Milano (2010). Co-founder of MATHESIA (2015) and of MATH&SPORT (2016).

He has been Director of the Chair of Modelling and Scientific Computing at the EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology), Lausanne (Switzerland), from 1 July 1998 to 1 December 2017.

He is author of 25 books, editor of 5 books, author of more than 300 papers published in international Scientific Journals and Conference Proceedings, member of the editorial board of 25 International Journals and Editor in Chief of two book series published by Springer.

Among his awards and honors are: the NASA Group Achievement Award for the pioneering work in Computational Fluid Dynamics in 1992, the Fanfullino della Riconoscenza 2006, Città di Lodi, the Premio Capo D’Orlando 2006, the Ghislieri prize 2013, the International Galileo Galilei prize for Sciences 2015, and the Euler Lecture 2017.

He has been invited speaker at ICM 2002 in Beijing and plenary speaker at ICM 2006 in Madrid.

His research interests concern Mathematical Modelling, Numerical Analysis, Scientific Computing, and Application to: fluid mechanics, geophysics, medicine and the improvement of sports performance. His Group has carried out the mathematical optimization of the early Solar Impulse (the solar energy propelled airplane), and the simulation for the optimization of performances of the Alinghi yacht, the winner of two editions (2003 and 2007) of the America’s Cup.
