Recent breakthroughs in Mathematics
The Belgian Mathematics Society is happy to invite you to its general assembly which will take place Wednesday 5/12/2018 from 2PM to 6PM. The event will consist in an afternoon's discussion by international and local experts on some of the more breathtaking breakthroughs in contemporary mathematics. The talks will focus on topics which were recently awarded prestigious prizes (particularly the Abel prize and Fields medal): PDEs, Wavelet theory, Algebraic geometry and Number Theory. All talks will be accessible to large audiences of mathematicians. Participation is free but registration is mandatory, see below.
The event will be organised at the Université Libre de Bruxelles and will start at 2pm in room
Forum E, campus Plaine
Those of you coming by car will need to display a parking authorization behind their windshield. The recommended parking is "parking Fraiteur" via "Acces 2".
