Random permutations have had a long history in statistic tests since Fisher, a century ago, investigated on whether a Lady could or could not determine which of the milk or the tea was first poured into the cup. The method of random permutations he developed yielded modern bootstrap approaches.
The Heidelberg Laureate Forum aims to create a scientific and informal platform to create links between 200 young researchers in mathematics and computer science from all around the globe and the laureates of prestigious prizes : the Abel Prize, the ACM A.M.Turing Award, the Fields Medal and the Nevanlinn
An online consultation on mathematics was carried out from 29 January to 15 May 2016 by the European Commission Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content & Technology (DG CONNECT). It seeked to inform the future Horizon2020 Work Programme (2018-19-20) with innovative mathematical content. Two facts motivated this request: today’s digital society depends on mathematics and algorithms; and there is a vast pool of mathematical talent in Europe.
The European Union launches a public consultation on the Cooperation between higher education institutions and public and private organisations in Europe.
This survey especially concerns mathematicians who have had experience of contractual cooperation with the business/industrial world, or have been in charge of development programs.
