Turingroom at Congress Centre Amsterdam Science Park

The Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) of the NWO Institute Organisation and the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) of the University of Amsterdam plan to organize a symposium on the occasion of the retirement of Jos Baeten as general director of CWI and professor of theory of computing of ILLC on Thursday 1 October 2020.

Please save this date in your diary.

The symposium has the following invited speakers:
- Jan Friso Groote, Eindhoven University of Technology
- Sjouke Mauw, University of Luxembourg
- Twan Basten, Eindhoven University of Technology
- Ana Sokolova, University of Salzburg.
The symposium is chaired by Wan Fokkink (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam), and includes a talk by Jos Baeten.
We intend to offer streaming video, so that the proceedings can be followed remotely.

More information on registration and a detailed program will follow around May 2020.

Van der Valk Hotel Utrecht, Winthontlaan 4, 3526 KV Utrecht

NMC 2020 will be a dynamic two-day congress with many new ingredients, such as an increased number of keynote speakers, sessions about developments that are important for mathematics, several awards, and speed dating sessions with industry.

The keynote lectures will be delivered by:

Helmut Hofer (Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton)
Assaf Naor (Princeton University)
Laure Saint-Raymond (Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon)
Bernd Sturmfels (Max-Planck Institute, Leipzig and University of California, Berkeley)

The Brouwer Medal will be awarded to David John Aldous (University of California, Berkeley)

The Beeger lecture will be given by David Harvey (UNSW, Sydney)

On the second day (April 15th) the traditional “Docentendag” will be replaced by the annual meeting “Onderwijs meets Onderzoek”. At this symposium, mathematics teachers and researchers in mathematics education discuss the question of what educational practice and educational research can mean for each other.

The congress further includes a conference dinner, a lively evening event, late night get together in the cozy bar and an overnight stay. There will be ample opportunity to speak to fellow mathematicians.

L017 @ CWI

The DIS group is organizing the second Pre-CHI Event @ CWI. A free 1-day event where people, who will be presenting at CHI (Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems) can practice  their presentation and get feedback. This can be anything from a paper presentation or case study to a poster (LBW).

Please register here by March 6, 2020 to help us organize an exciting (and fun) Pre-CHI Event!
