Wintersymposium 2017, Academiegebouw Utrecht, 14 januari 2017

Het wintersymposium 2017 van het Koninklijk Wiskundig Genootschap heeft als
raakvlakken tussen wiskunde en informatica. In het symposium nemen vier
wetenschappers u mee in verschillende facetten van dit interdisciplinaire onderwerp.
Rondom dit thema vinden momenteel veel ontwikkelingen in de wetenschap plaats, en
daarnaast is er vanuit curriculumontwikkeling ook steeds meer aandacht voor bijvoorbeeld
programmeren. Het symposium is in de eerste plaats bestemd voor docenten wiskunde:
van docenten in opleiding tot ervaren docenten. Ook voor leerlingen en collega’s van
andere vakgebieden kan het symposium interessant zijn.
Alle belangstellenden zijn van harte welkom.

EWN-NL Meeting
Date/location: Wednesday Nov. 30th, 2016, Academiegebouw, Utrecht
Please join us for the annual version of the Dutch European in Mathematics
(EWM-NL) meeting. In the meeting we will discuss on how to improve the gender
balance in mathematics: Mathematics for all!
It is important that both men and women (senior and junior) join the discussion,
since the issues at hand can only be solved together with the whole mathematics
community. Unfortunately, so far only a few men have registered for this meeting.
We request all female participants to encourage at least one male colleague to
join this meeting. So please bring your male buddy!
Attendance is free, but
registration is appreciated for catering purposes.
We hope to see many of you in Utrecht!

Calling Outstanding Young Researchers – Application Tool Open!


The application process for the 5th Heidelberg Laureate Forum has started.


Young researchers in computer science and mathematics from all over the world
can apply for one of the 200 coveted spots to participate in the Heidelberg Laureate
Forum (HLF), an annual networking event. The HLF offers all accepted young
researchers the great opportunity to personally interact with the laureates of the
most prestigious prizes in the fields of mathematics and computer science.
For one week, the recipients of the Abel Prize, the ACM A.M. Turing Award, the ACM
Prize in Computing, the Fields Medal, and the Nevanlinna Prize engage in a
cross-generational scientific dialogue with young researchers in Heidelberg, Germany.


The application period for the 5th HLF runs from November 14, 2016 until February 14, 2017.
Young researchers at all phases of their careers (undergrad, PhD or postdoc) are encouraged
to complete and submit their applications by
February 14 (midnight at the dateline)
via the following link:



The 5th HLF will take place from September 24 to 29, 2017 (with young researcher
registration on
September 23). This prominent, versatile event combines scientific,
social and outreach activities in an informal atmosphere, fueled by comprehensive exchange
and scientific inspiration. Laureate lectures, young researcher workshops and a structure
welcoming unfettered discussions are the elements that compose the Forum’s platform.


Over the course of the week-long HLF, young researchers will be given the exclusive
possibility to profoundly connect with their scientific role models and find out how
the laureates made it to the top of their fields. As described by a young researcher
at the 4th HLF, “The best professional experience of my life. I thought that receiving
my PhD was the most ultimate event and highlight, but the HLF tops even that.”


All applications that are completed and submitted by the deadline are meticulously
reviewed by an international committee of experts to ensure that only the most qualified
candidates are invited. There are 100 spaces available for each discipline of mathematics
and computer science. All applicants will be notified by the end of
April 2017 whether
or not they will be invited.


For questions regarding requirements and the application process, please contact
Young Researchers Relations at:

The HLFF was established and is funded by the German foundation the Klaus Tschira Stiftung (KTS),
which promotes natural sciences, mathematics and computer science. The Scientific Partners
of the HLFF are the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS) and Heidelberg University.
The HLF is strongly supported by the award-granting institutions, the Association for
Computing Machinery (ACM), the International Mathematical Union (IMU),
and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (DNVA).
