The 54-th Dutch Mathematical Congress (NMC) was held in the Koningshof in Veldhoven, on April 3—4, 2018, the two days following Easter 2018. This year's congress has been a pilot under auspices of the Royal Dutch Mathematical Society (KWG), inspired by the `Deltaplan Wiskunde'. It was a larger scale two day congress, including conference dinner and an overnight stay. This NMC new-style is possible thanks to generous financial support from NWO, obtained via PWN. If successful, this pilot will be continued in a more structural fashion.
The program included plenary lectures by Adriana Garroni, Yi Ma, Jean-François Le Gall, William Slofstra, Bruno Stoufflet, and Fernando Rodriguez Villegas (Beeger lecture). There were many minisymposia (DISC, DIAMANT, GQT, NDNS+, STAR, CompSci, NETWORKS, QuSoft, Machine Learning, Math PhD’s working in industry, KWG PhD-prize laureates & Stieltjesprize winners, SWI). The annual afternoon session for high school teachers ("Docentendag"), including lectures by the competitors for the Pythagoras ProfielWerkstuk Prijs, took place at the second day.
Postersessions on both days.
