CWI Lectures

The annual CWI Lectures revolve around scientific topics from one of the institute's research groups. Every year, a different research group is selected to host a Lectures edition. This event welcomes all interested researchers, contacts, and CWI affiliates to join in for lectures, meetings and networking.

The next edition of CWI Lectures will take place in 2022.

CWI Lectures – Control and System Theory (2011)

14-06-2011 from 11:30 to 16:00 Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica, Turing Room, Z011,
As technology is developing, more and more complex tasks are expected to be performed by machines or computers without any human intervention. An example is the control of unmanned straddle carriers on a container terminal without being instructed by a human driver. A challenge for mathematicians is to find control laws for such sophisticated systems.

CWI Lectures in Mathematics and Computer Science (2010)

25-06-2010 from 11:00 to 16:00
Op vrijdag 25 juni organiseert het Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) in Amsterdam de jaarlijkse CWILectures. Internationaal gerenommeerde sprekers zullen dit jaar hun visie geven op het thema ‘Data Intensive Research’. Het programma bestaat onder meer uit bijdragen van hoofdsprekers Hector Garcia-Molina (Stanford University, U.S.A.) en Alex Szalay (Johns Hopkins University).

CWI Lectures in Mathematics and Computer Science (2009)

04-06-2009 from 10:00 to 16:00
What does city heating have to do with cancer research? How do cells know how to make a blood vessel - can they communicate and organize themselves? In January 2009, a new research group in the life sciences has started at CWI. We celebrate this with this year’s edition of the CWI Lectures in Mathematics and Computer Science.

CWI Lectures 25 Years of Concurrency Theory at CWI (2008)

23-05-2008 from 11:30 to 15:30
25 Years of Concurrency Theory at CWI. Speakers: Jos Baeten, Gerard Holzmann, Jan Bergstra, Moshe Vardi. The SEN2 group at CWI has played a prominent role in concurrency theory since the early 80's, with an emphasis on algebraic techniques for the specification and verification of software systems. Five consecutive leaders of SEN2 started research groups at Dutch universities. Now that concurrency theory is so well established in The Netherlands, CWI has decided to shift the focus of SEN2 to service-oriented computing.
