CWI, Amsterdam

CWI Lectures in honour of Adriaan van Wijngaarden
Date/location: November 3rd, 2016, Amsterdam Science Park Congress Centre
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Adriaan van Wijngaarden (1916-1987),
founder of computer science in the Netherlands and former director of CWI. 2016 is also
the 70th founding anniversary of CWI. We will celebrate these occasions with a special
programme in honour of Adriaan van Wijngaarden and his legacy. Several internationally
renowned speakers will explore the legacy of Van Wijngaarden in both mathematics and computer science.
The symposium aims at a general academic public and is organized by Paul Klint and Jan Rutten.
More information about the programme, registration, and key­note speakers will follow on a later date.

For further information and questions concerning the CWI Lectures, contact:
Daniëlle Kollerie.

VUB

The Beautiful Impact of Mathematics in Society (BIMS)
Date/location: September 21st, 2016, VUB-Campus, Etterbeek, Belgium
Mathematics is invaluable in science and technology, however it is seldom explicitly
visible in our society. At this conference we put mathematics in the spotlight and work
towards an integrated approach for mathematics in education, teacher training, research,
society and innovation. We have put together a fascinating program featuring 6 inspiring speakers.


Day program (VUB-campus):

·           09:00 Welcome by our new rector Caroline Pauwels;

·           09:30 Wil Schilders (Director Platform Wiskunde Nederland), Deltaplan Wiskunde (NL);

·           10:30 Raymonda Verdyck (Head of Gemeenschapsonderwijs GO!), Mathematics in education (NL);

·           11:30 Etienne Ghys (Researcher renowned for his science communication), Mathematical research (EN);

·           14:00 Jan Bogaerts (Head of European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer),
Mathematics in Healthcare (EN);

·           15:00 Ton Kalker (VP of DRM & Software Security at DTS), Mathematics in Industry & Innovation (EN);

·           16:00 Simon Singh (Writer of the blockbusters "Fermat's Last Theorem" en "The Code Book”),
Stimulating mathematical talent (EN).

In the evening at 19:00 we share our pleasure in doing mathematics by delving together in some
mathematical problems and enigmas while having drinks in the center of Brussels: a real Maths Jam!
Webiste for more information.

Registration is free but required due to limited places.
