Since 1897, the International Congress of Mathematicians has helped shape the history of mathematics in the 20th and 21st centuries. It is during this meeting that several prizes, such as Fields medals, are awarded.
Dynamical systems appear in various domains such as fluid mechanics, economy or ecology. Such systems consist in a phase space which parametrizes a system and in evolution laws which describe the evolution of this system. The first examples of dynamical systems come from celestial mechanics, where the phase space consists in the set of positions and speed of each of the planets, and the evolution laws are given by the differential equations of Newton's fundamental principle.
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.
The U.S. National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health, the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the French National Research Agency (ANR), and the United States-Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF) announced the release of the program solicitation for Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience (CRCNS; NSF 16-607).
The next deadline for proposals will be December 19, 2016.
The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MAECI) instituted the “Italian Bilateral Scientific Cooperation Award” in the year 2017 to recognize an Italian eminent scientist who, in performing his/her research abroad, has made a remarkable contribution to the advancement of science and technology, thus improving Italy’s S&T relations with foreign countries and
with International Organizations.
