Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica is counting down to its 75th anniversary and invites you to join us for a special online event on Thursday 11 February.

Due to restrictions to curb the coronavirus epidemic, we will celebrate our anniversary online. You are cordially invited to join our live video stream. We will send out your personal link to the live stream on Wednesday 10 February so please register before that date.

One of the programme's highlights is the interview with our former director Jos Baeten in which he will reflect on his personal experiences with computers and computing research.

Founded in 1946 as Mathematisch Centrum, our institute has been the birthplace of numerous scientific breakthroughs, and a breeding ground for talented researchers. During our online event, we will look back on our most remarkable scientific achievements.

But above all, we will look into the future with scientific breakout sessions: what do our scientists see when they look ahead to the future of, for example, artificial intelligence or quantum computing? How do we deal with data in the future? And to what level of security can you make computers safe?

Preliminary programme:
14.00 Opening
14.10 Breakout sessions round 1
            * 1A: Daniel Dadush - Integer and Linear Programming Beyond the Worst-Case
            * 1B: Marten van Dijk - Secure Smart Low Lands
            * 1C: Benjamin Sanderse
            * 1D: Irene Viola
14.40 Ton de Kok
15.00 Break
15.10 Breakout sessions round 2
            * 2A: Peter Bosman
            * 2B: Stacey Jeffery
            * 2C: Lisa Kohl - Secure Computation with Silent Preprocessing
            * 2D: Hannes Muhleisen - Saving the Planet one Query at a Time
15.40 Jos Baeten
16.00 Comedian Adam Fields
16.35 Closing
Chair of the day is Ans Hekkenberg.

For inquiries and further details about our 75th birthday celebrations on 11 February, check our website or contact event coordinator Daniëlle Kollerie (D.C.Kollerie@cwi.nl).

We are trying to get in contact with as many CWI alumni as possible. In case you know of any alumni (scientific and/or support staff) who should take part in the celebrations too, please feel free to forward the above information.
Alumni who would like to stay updated and receive invites to CWI events, should inform Daniëlle Kollerie (kollerie@cwi.nl) on what email address they can be contacted.
