Call for CAMGSD PhD Studentships

The Center for Mathematical Analysis, Geometry and Dynamical Systems has opened a call to award two research grants in the area of Mathematics. The studentships will be financed by the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) within the collaboration Protocol for Financing the Multiannual Plan for Scholarships for Doctoral Students.

All the details how to apply can be found in the Call Notice.

The call is open from June 15th to July 31th of 2020 at 17h00 (WEST/Lisbon time).


José Natário interviewed by BBC Science Focus Magazine.

"Warp drive" refers to certain mathematical solutions of Einstein's equations in General Relativity that would allow faster than light travel by deforming spacetime appropriately. However, general theorems proved by José Natário in 2002 show that these solutions are physically unattainable, since they always involve negative energy and the formation of horizons. Recently, José Natário discussed these results in an interview to BBC Science Focus Magazine.

Seminar series MPML (Mathematics, Physics and Machine Learning)

A new seminar series MPML (Mathematics, Physics and Machine Learning) will start online on May 14.

Those interested in receiving the announcements (which will include the zoom addresses and passwords) please register.

The IST seminar series Mathematics, Physics & Machine Learning aims at bringing together mathematicians and physicists interested in Machine Learning with Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence experts interested in Mathematics and Physics, with the goals of introducing innovative Mathematics and Physics-inspired techniques in Machine Learning and, reciprocally, applying Machine Learning to problems in Mathematics and Physics.

Check already planned seminars.

Working Groups for Women in Operator Theory and Trends in Operator Theory Workshop
2020-06-22 — 2020-06-26

Map Lorentz Center@Oort Leiden, Netherlands

The meeting has been cancelled.

This workshop aims on the one hand at presenting and discussing recent research trends and open problems in operator theory and, on the other hand, at building a network focused on active collaborative research, geared to attract female mathematicians to operator theory and related areas. It will include a succinct overview of state-of-the-art techniques and recent results in operator theory and its applications; intensive group problem-solving sessions with each working group led by 1-2 project leaders and involving graduate students/postdocs, early career researchers, and more experienced researchers to discuss possible strategies and solutions to open problems; structured conversations focused on career and research advancement and teaching pedagogy; and ample social periods for informal discussions.   

Partially funded by  FCT (Portugal) and CAMGSD through project UIDB/04459/2020 and by NSF-HRD 1500481 - AWM ADVANCE grant and the NSF Award DMS-1956360.

Organizers:  Francesca Arici (Leiden University), Fernanda Botelho (University of Memphis),  Cristina Câmara (CAMGSD/Instituto Superior Técnico), Brittney Miller (Coe College).  


Intensive Week PDEs on the WEB
2020-06-08 — 2020-06-12

The intensive week of PDEs is a joint initiative of some research groups in Italy (Turin and Rome) and Portugal (Lisbon), which allows to continue the exchange of ideas within the PDE community in this strange period, where scientific travels have stopped.

Each day there will be a session of the mini-course and a talk given by one of the participants. Then in the remaining time people would be able to organize in small groups in order to discuss research (ongoing or new). The meeting aims to intensify the existing collaborations and to stimulate interactions between participants.


8th IST-IME Meeting
2020-09-07 — 2020-09-11

Map Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisboa, Portugal

Postponed to 2021

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 Giorgio Fusco, who has been a major contributor to the IST-IME link.


Workshop on Black Holes: BPS, BMS and Integrability.
2020-09-09 — 2020-09-11

Map P3.10, Mathematics Building, Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisboa, Portugal

The workshop brings together researchers to facilitate collaborative discussions on current developments in quantum gravity and string theory.

Organizers: Gabriel Lopes Cardoso, Suresh Nampuri.
