Recent breakthroughs in Mathematics and General Assembly



The Belgian Mathematical Society is happy to invite you to its "Recent breakthroughs and GA" symposium which will take place on the afternoon of Wednesday March 29 2023

The event will take place at the Palace of the academies, auditorium Albert II.  

Aside from the yearly general assembly of the BMS, the event will as usual consist in an afternoon's discussion by international experts on some of the more breathtaking breakthroughs in contemporary mathematics.

This year the talks will focus on topics which were recently awarded the prestigious Fields medal. All talks will be accessible to large audiences of mathematicians. We will  also have the chance to hear a talk by our 2022 "Young Scholar Award" recipient, Daniel Drimbe (KUL). 

Participation is free for BMS members and PhD students, but registration is mandatory, see below. Non PhD students who are not BMS members will be invited to become members to enjoy the free drinks :-).
