UvA

LIMO 2016 (Landelijke Interuniversitaire Mathematische Olympiade)
Date: June 10th, 2016 (Location TBA)
LIMO is a yearly mathematics competiton between universities attended by 30 different teams from The Netherlands and Belgium.

LIMO has been organized since 2005 and has shown to be a very successful event. In 2016 UvA and NSA (Natuurwetenschappelijke Studievereniging Amster­dam) have the honour of organizing the LIMO competition. This is a great opportunity to put mathematics at UvA, both teaching and research, on the map.

The opening of the event will be effectuated by Prof.dr. D.C. van den Boom, Rector Magnificus UvA

As part of the LIMO Hendrik Lenstra, mathematician and winner of the Spinoza Prize, will be giving a one-hour talk on profinite integers, which will be open to anyone who is interested. The talk will start at 10:30 and will be in Dutch. Signing up is possible through the following link
The competition and the awarding ceremony will be followed by drinks and a diner.
