Call for Course proposals at the 31st Brazilian Mathematics Colloquium

The Organizing Committee of 31st Brazilian Mathematics Colloquium, requests course proposals for the next 31st Colloquium to be held at IMPA, Rio de Janeiro, from July 30 – August 5, 2017. Two categories of courses will be considered: introductory and advanced.

Advanced Courses should focus on current research topics and should be designed for advanced graduate students and researchers. These courses should be designed as five-hour courses (five 60-minute lectures).

Introductory Courses should address topics accessible to undergraduate students and should depend on as little background as possible. Furthermore, they should focus on subjects not usually covered in standard undergraduate courses. These courses should be seven and a half hours long (5 lectures of 90 minutes each); besides expository lectures, exercise classes should be planned. The lectures are in general expected to be given in Portuguese.

Extended lecture notes must be prepared for both the Introductory Courses and the Advanced Courses.

In order to submit a proposal, please send its details to the Office of the 31st Brazilian Mathematics Colloquium, at The deadline for proposals is November 15th , 2016. Proposals should contain the information below.

  1. Title of the course
  2. Category (Introductory or Advanced)
  3. Authors and assistants for the exercise classes
  4. Detailed description: aims of the course, for whom the course is targeted, course contents, proposed chapter and section distribution of the lecture notes, bibliography
  5. Prerequisites
  6. Any other information deemed relevant

Proposals will be refereed and the result of the selection process will be announced by December 10th, 2016. The lecture notes from the accepted courses should be prepared with a specific LaTeX package produced for this purpose, to be made available to the authors at Colloquium´s page. The camera-ready copy of the lecture notes should be turned in by May 10, 2017, at

Escuelas CIMPA y RSME

Desde IEMath-GR nos hacemos eco del siguiente comunicado de la RSME sobre Escuelas CIMPA, y animamos a los interesados a contactar con la RSME sobre el tema, por medio de Magdalena Rodríguez (magdarp(arroba), vocal de la Junta de Gobierno de la RSME.


El CIMPA acaba de abrir la convocatoria anual para proyectos de Escuelas de investigación CIMPA en 2018. Recordamos que estas escuelas de investigación, cuya duración es de alrededor de dos semanas, pueden versar sobre cualquier área de las Matemáticas. Están destinadas a formar a una nueva generación de investigadoras e investigadores.

on especialmente bienvenidas las propuestas en Matemáticas Aplicadas o relacionadas con la aplicación de las Matemáticas. Serán prioritarios los proyectos en zonas empobrecidas matemática o económicamente.

Desde la RSME os animamos a que presentéis propuestas. Hasta el 15 de junio hay un primer plazo para enviar las pre-propuestas y el 1 de octubre se cierra la convocatoria.

Los proyectos aceptados en esta convocatoria serán para escuelas a realizar en 2018. Ese año se celebra el ICM en Brasil, por lo que organizar escuelas allí, o en países del entorno, resulta de especial interés.

Adjuntamos la convocatoria, que también puede verse en:

No dudéis en contactarnos para cualquier cuestión que no sepáis resolver.

Un saludo cordial.

Nanomath 2016

We are pleased to announce the third Nanomath conference, to be held in Toulouse, 27-30 June 2016.

(registration deadline 10 June 2016)

Nanotechnology is a rapidly growing and exciting research area that is constantly issuing new challenges. Despite extensive research in this field, many breakthroughs and advances are the result of trial and error, since the mathematical framework and appropriate solution techniques which could provide a theoretical understanding often do not exist. Started in 2012 the purpose of the Nanomath conferences is to bring together mathematicians, chemists, physicists and engineers to explore the potential for mathematicians and experimental scientists to gain a better insight into the workings of the nanoworld.

Invited speakers (confirmed):

  • R. Cuerno, Universidad Carlos III, Madrid
  • I. Griffiths, University of Oxford
  • C. Magén, Universidad, Zaragoza
  • C.-A. Pillet, Université de Toulon

Consulta abierta sobre Matemáticas para el trabajo futuro en Horizonte 2020

En el marco del proyecto Horizonte 2020 de la Comisión Europea, se ha abierto una segunda consulta para descubrir cuáles son las áreas emergentes de las matemáticas en las que se debe invertir, teniendo en cuenta que la sociedad digital actual depende en gran medida de las matemáticas, sus métodos y algoritmos. Los resultados de la consulta ayudarán a preparar el trabajo de los años venideros (2018-2020), aprovechando el gran talento matemático que tiene Europa. La intención es que la Comunidad pueda ser pionera en las aplicaciones de las matemáticas en áreas estratégicas.

Se puede participar:

  • comentando áreas ya propuestas,
  • proponiendo nuevas áreas, y
  • apuntando dominios de aplicación donde se necesiten nuevas matemáticas.

Se puede leer toda la información y responder la consulta hasta el 30 de abril de 2016 en

Segunda convocatoria de las estancias postdoctorales de la RedIUM

El propósito de este programa es la cofinanciación de estancias posdoctorales entre la Red de Institutos Universitarios de Matemáticas (RedIUM) y los institutos adheridos a la misma.

1) El programa se centra en la cofinanciación de gastos asociados a estancias cortas de jóvenes doctores en los institutos adheridos a la RedIUM. La Red financiará hasta un máximo de 1.000 euros al mes en concepto de gastos justificables de viajes, estancia y dietas, y se espera que los centros receptores puedan aportar una cifra similar. En esta segunda convocatoria, la RedIUM destina 6.000 euros a este programa.

2) La cofinanciación de estancias por parte de la RedIUM requiere que éstas se repartan entre varios de los institutos adheridos.

3) Bases:

3.1. Las propuestas serán presentadas preferiblemente por dos o más institutos para la realización de una estancia posdoctoral compartida. Las solicitudes se enviarán por correo electrónico al coordinador de la RedIUM dentro de los plazos que se acuerden.

3.2. En la propuesta se adjuntará un curriculum vitae de la persona candidata, una breve descripción del trabajo a realizar, los nombres de los institutos involucrados, el número de meses de estancia que se solicitan en cada instituto y el compromiso de cofinanciación.

3.3. Las estancias solicitadas serán de un mínimo de dos meses y un máximo de seis. En esta segunda convocatoria la incorporación deberá producirse antes del 1 de junio de 2016 y la terminación será antes del 30 de noviembre de 2016.

3.4. El plazo de presentación de las solicitudes concluirá el 29 de enero de 2016.

4) La decisión acerca de la selección de las solicitudes a subvencionar será tomada por el equipo gestor de la RedIUM. Se podrán conceder estancias por una duración menor que la solicitada, siempre que esta supere los dos meses en total. En la evaluación se tendrán en cuenta, entre otros, los siguientes aspectos:
