Unfortunately, the third BMS – BGSMath Junior Meeting which was scheduled to take place from Wednesday to Friday 1-3 September 2021 in Barcelona had to be cancelled due to the current Covid-19-pandemic. We are hoping to reschedule this meeting for 2022.
The Berlin Mathematical School (BMS) and the Barcelona Graduate School of Mathematics (BGSMath) share the common goal of striving for excellence in their doctoral and postdoctoral training programs.
In 2016, a memorandum of understanding was signed by both graduate schools in order to boost collaborative work between young researchers from both institutions. The schools declared their intention to cooperate together in initiatives aimed at promoting the mobility of and exchange between students and faculty members by way of events such as the Junior Meeting; joint summer schools; mutual visits by advanced students and postdocs of each institution; and other scientific activities.
The ultimate goal is to create strong scientific exchange, strengthen research collaboration between the respective math communities, and enhance the multicultural environment of both graduate schools. The first edition of the BMS-BGSMath Junior Meeting was held in Barcelona in October 2017, and the second one was held in Berlin in June 2019. The third Junior Meeting aims to intensify current collaborations and create new links between the two schools.
Scientific sessions will be focused on different areas of Mathematics, trying to cover a wide range of topics and to be of interest for all the participants. No previous background in a specific area will be required to attend and understand the talks.
BMS – BGSMath Junior Meeting 2019:
Scientific sessions were focused on the following areas:
- Algebra, geometry, topology
- Probability theory, statistics, analysis and PDEs
- Discrete mathematics and computer science.
