Iberian Strings 2017
2017-01-16 — 2017-01-20

The Iberian Strings 2017 meeting is the eighth meeting of the Iberian Strings series. These meetings bring together a large part of the string theory community of Spain and Portugal and aim at discussing recent advances in the field of strings and branes.


Hugo Tavares awarded prize

Hugo Tavares, CAMGSD Researcher and Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon, was awarded the Universidade de Lisboa / Caixa Geral de Depósitos Scientific Prize of 6,500€ in the field of Pure and Applied Mathematics. The selection committee assessed the scientific merit of the research work of the candidates in 2011-2015.


ERC Grant awarded to Ana Patrícia Gonçalves

Ana Patrícia Gonçalves, researcher at CAMGSD and an Associate Professor at the Instituto Superior Técnico since May 2016, has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant of 1,180,000€ for 5 years. This is the first time the European Research Council has granted this award to a mathematician working in Portugal.

The funded research project aims at characterizing the universality of the macroscopic behavior of some physical systems from underlying microscopic stochastic dynamics, by deriving the macroscopic laws, namely, (stochastic) partial differential equations, which govern the space-time evolution of the thermodynamic quantities of those physical systems.


Spanish-Portuguese Relativity Meeting 2016
2016-09-12 — 2016-09-15

The 2016 edition of the Spanish-Portuguese Relativity Meeting (EREP2016) will be held in Lisbon from 12 to 15 September, celebrating the centenary of the most famous solution of the Einstein field equations, the Schwarzschild solution. The topics of the plenary lectures will revolve around three main areas of research, namely Relativistic Astrophysics and Cosmology, Mathematical Relativity, and the interface between Gravitation and Quantum Theory, and reflect the intended broad scope of the meeting.


6th IST-IME Meeting
2016-09-05 — 2016-09-09

This meeting, whose scope comprises Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations and related topics, aims to promote integration of researchers of both IST and IME (and other institutions), with the presentation of research works and plenary lectures of the participants.

This edition will honor Waldyr Oliva, our extraordinary mathematical bridge across the South Atlantic.
