The Simons Foundation International, Ltd., (SFI) is funding a project of the International Center for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS-Sofia) at the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences for the period 2022 – 2025.
The grant is aimed at supporting displaced scientists from Ukraine and other countries, organizing international scientific events with the participation of world-renowned and established mathematicians, and opening new research positions for young scientists.
News & Announcements
On December 8 and 9, 2022 the International Center for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS-Sofia), the Union of Bulgarian Mathematicians and the Institute of the Mathematical Sciences of the Americas at the University of Miami (IMSA) organized the Third International Conference “Women in Mathematics in South-Eastern Europe”. The conference was hosted by the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia.
This workshop was devoted to discussing important and timely problems concerning the application of exact mathematical methods to conventional integrable systems and to the gauge/string models, e.g., to extend current methods for calculating finite-volume matrix elements of operators, to construct a finite version of the hexagon form factor expansion for short operators, to extend the methods of the thermodynamic Bethe Ansatz to world-sheets of higher topology and to all sorts of boundaries and defects, etc.
The Conference on Geometry and Physics was held on July 15 – 18, 2022 in Riu Palace Hotel, Sunny Beach, Bulgaria. The goal of this conference was to consolidate and disseminate new developments in Geometry and Physics.
The International Center for Mathematical Sciences received a three-year grant from Simons Foundation
The Foundation funded a project of the International Center for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS-Sofia) at the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics for a period of three years. The funds will be used to organize international scientific forums with the participation of world-renowned and established mathematicians, to open new positions for researchers and to support scientists from Ukraine and other countries.
- March 27 - March 29
The workshop Recent developments in stochastic processes gathers together renowned experts from different contemporary research topics within the field with the aim to present and promote them to the scientific and educational communities in Bulgaria and in this way to increase the interest of students and young scientists in probability theory.
- May 28 - May 31
The workshop will bring together leading experts from the fields of Sphere packings, sphere coverings and spherical codes to present new results and developments, open problems and new directions. Eight invited lectures will be given in the morning sessions. The afternoon sessions will be devoted to contributed talks.
- July 12 - July 14
This workshop will gather about 15 researchers around a central theme of the geometric properties of various distances and metric of domains in C^n (squeezing function, Gromov hyperbolicity, visibility of geodesics) as well as related subjects.
