Seminar of Representation Theory and Related Areas: First Workshop.
University of Coimbra, April 06, 2011.
The Seminar of Representation Theory and Related Areas was conceived in 2010 and emerged from an informal seminar of mathematicians from the Math Departments of the Universities of Coimbra, Lisboa and Porto, with research interests in Representation Theory of Groups and Algebras, as well as Combinatorics.
The group aims to pursue and develop interactions between Representation Theory, Geometry, Combinatorics and other relevant areas. Participation is open to anyone with interests in these and other related areas.
Speakers: K. Erdmann (University of Oxford; R. Mamede (Universidade de Coimbra);
P. Carvalho (Universidade do Porto);I. Yudin (Universidade de Coimbra);
C. Florentino (Universidade Técnica de Lisboa); A. M. Neto (Universidade Técnica de Lisboa);
S. Launois (University of Kent - Canterbury)
Non-Associative Algebras and Related Topics. University of Coimbra, July 25-29, 2011.
The aim of this conference is to bring together mathematicians and physicists interested in this field, with a central goal of increasing the quality of research, promoting interaction among researchers and discussing new directions for the future.
There will be Mini-Courses given by: S. Benayadi, A. Elduque, V. Futorny and A. Pozhidaev.
Plenary Lectures: G. Benkart, S. Majid, C. Martinez, I. Shestakov and E. Zelmanov
SETA 2009 – Spatial Extremes, Theory and Applications, Parque das Nações, Lisbon, April 6-8, 2009.
The workshop is concerned with data of a spatial character such as rainfall, air pollution, waves at sea etc. The focus is on extreme behaviour of variables such as exceptionally damaging rainfall, a very high concentration of pollutants over some area. Since these phenomena have a strong random component the models to be used need to be random models i.e. stochastic processes in space and possibly also in time describing extreme phenomena. This area of research has been opened up only recently and we bring together specialists with varying backgrounds and view points: the background may be meteorology (van den Brink), physical modelling (Rychlik), geostatistics (Cooley, Schlather) or probabilistic/statistical (Anderson, Drees, Einmahl, Walshaw). We expect a lively meeting by bringing together outstanding scientists from various backgrounds studying the same phenomena.
XVIIIth Oporto Meeting on Geometry, Topology and Physics, Porto, July 9-12, 2009.
The aim of this meeting is to bring together mathematicians and physicists interested in the inter-relation between geometry, topology and physics and to provide them with a pleasant and informal environment for scientific interchange.
The Centro Internacional de Matemática organizes and sponsors the International Programme Committee meeting of the international study on
Educational Interfaces between Mathematics and Industry. The meeting took place in Óbidos, Portugal, during 2-5 October, 2008 and is a joint study of ICMI (the IMU International Commission on Mathematical Instruction) and
(International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics). Mathematical "Training and Education" for industry was identified as an important issue in the recent report of the OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) on
Mathematics in Industry, that also contains valuable references to other resources in this area.
PhD Programme in Telecommunications
The PhD Programme in Telecommunications is a joint venture of Universidade do Minho, Universidade de Aveiro and Universidade do Porto, three Portuguese Universities with a strong tradition in the area of Telecommunications Engineering. The programme represents a fusion of the doctoral offers in Telecommunications in the three institutions and constitutes a unified effort to prepare highly qualified human resources in Telecommunications.
