CWI's Soiree and Van Wijngaarden Awards

Since 2006 and every five years, CWI presents the Van Wijngaarden Award to a mathematician and computer scientist of special significance during the festive Soiree. The award is named after Adriaan van Wijngaarden (1916-1987), informatics pioneer and former director of the Mathematisch Centrum, now known as CWI.

On 2 November 2016, the Van Wijngaarden Awards were awarded to mathematician Sara van de Geer and computer scientist Xavier Leroy. Previous awards went to Nancy Lynch and Persi Diaconis (2006), and Éva Tardos and John Butcher (2011). The Van Wijngaarden Awards consists of a bronze sculpture bij Hanneke van den Bergh.

Early October every year, during 'the Weekend for Science', CWI and other institutes at Amsterdam Science Park organize the Open Dag.
