Discrete mathematics has a long-standing tradition of generating and utilizing data to substantiate theories. Conversely, questions regarding the systematic generation of (counter-)examples drives research.
This 2-day “noon-to-noon” workshop is dedicated to the interplay of discrete data and discrete structures from a contemporary perspective. How FAIR is our data? How can modern technology help to analyze and interpret discrete data? Which connections to the sciences become visible through data? We approach these questions “hands-on” with invited lectures and panel discussions.
We will be celebrating Günter M. Ziegler's 60th birthday with a 1.5-day workshop. The workshop relates to the Gunter's contributions to geometry, topology, and the mathematical community. Please join us for a festive event with many of Günter's students, postdocs, and long-term companions. The first day concludes with a joint dinner.
This workshop will serve as a forum for scientific exchange and coordination of project proposals. The speakers are Paolo Benincasa (MPI Physics), Sarah Brauner (Minnesota/MPI-MiS), Mareike Fischer (Greifswald), Irem Portakal (TU München), Frank Vallentin (Köln), and Michael Walter (Bochum).
Barcamp on research-data management in mathematics. The event will provide a forum to exchange expertise and questions in the field of mathematics-specific research-data management (RDM) and existing best practices. It is aimed at all researchers dealing with mathematical research data. In a Barcamp, the topics are decided on by the participants. This means that the focus will be very specific to the research questions and needs of the attendees. Questions could be: "What exactly does your community need?", "What works well and what doesn't?" or "How do young researchers or young projects implement 'good' RDM structures in the first place and what has proven successful?"
The main speakers of this session will be Bertrand EYNARD (CEA/IPHT Saclay) and Ilse FISCHER (Universität Wien). There will be time for a limited number of talks by participants (about 25 minutes each talk).
Every researcher in every research discipline has research data. Only, you may not call it data (yet).
To generate new math results, we build on previous results, perform own observations and thought experiments, try and fail many times until a proof is completed, find a little help from a colleague, and maybe use a computer to run a quick or complex computation. Isn’t all this just collecting data?
In this one-day course that was specifically designed for researchers in mathematics, we will learn and experience what mathematical research data is and how we can organize, document, and possibly publish it.
The second MaRDI Barcamp on research-data management in mathematics hosted by the Mathematical Research Data Initiative (MaRDI) will take place on October 20th 2023 at the Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg.
The event will provide a forum to exchange expertise and questions in the field of mathematics-specific research-data management and existing best practices. It is aimed at all researchers dealing with mathematical research data as well as at people from large mathematical research projects such as CRCs, priority programs or clusters of excellence.
What is a Barcamp? After short initial talks the topics are decided on by the participants. This means that the focus will be very specific to the research questions and needs of the attendees. Possible questions and topics we hope to address are: "What exactly does your community need?", "What works well and what doesn't?" or "How do young researchers or young projects implement 'good' RDM structures in the first place and what has proven successful?" We do not assume any prior knowledge with data management.
A “coworkspace” is a place where people come together to work together or simply side-by-side. The goal of our “combinatorial coworkspace” is to give a group of motivated young and promising as well as established mathematicians such a place to explore new directions, applications, cooperations, and alliances within combinatorics and beyond. A context is provided by a suitable number of tutorials and lectures and the beautiful location encourages to take mathematical thoughts outdoors.
This one-week course offers an introduction to recent advances in combinatorics and algebraic geometry that were inspired by themes from particle physics, such as scattering amplitudes and Feynman integrals.
This summer school is a satellite event of FPSAC 2024 which takes place the week after at Ruhr-University Bochum. Three outstanding speakers (Chris Eur, Greta Panova and Vic Reiner) will present short courses on current topics in Algebraic Combinatorics.
One of the world-leading conference series in combinatorics will take place in Bochum (Germany) in 2024. All members of the network and the priority programme are invited to participate and submit their best work.
