The Royal Dutch Mathematical Society (KWG) has awarded the Brouwer medal 2017 to the American mathematician Kenneth A. Ribet, professor at the University of California, Berkeley.
During the Dutch Mathematical Congress on April 11, 2017, Ken Ribet will deliver the Brouwer lecture, aimed at a general mathematical audience, after which he will receive the Brouwer medal. More ...
The 54-th Dutch Mathematical Congress (NMC) will be held in Veldhoven, on April 3—4, 2018, the two days following Easter 2018.
The upcoming NMC will be a pilot under auspices of the Royal Dutch Mathematical Society (KWG), inspired by the `Deltaplan Wiskunde'. It will be a larger scale two day congress, offering a plenary program with internationally renowned mathematicians.
In addition it aims at hosting many parallel activities of various Dutch mathematical subcommunities, including the research clusters and high school teachers. Minisymposia addressing themes of current interest to the math community are also envisaged. An overnight stay will be included.
If successful, this pilot, supported by PWN, NWO and the research clusters, will be continued in a more structural fashion at a fixed location.
