The aim of the mini-workshop organized in the Institute of Mathematics ASCR from 17 to 21 December 2014 is to bring people working in various areas of algebra, logic, and functional analysis. where similar tools and methods are used.
Organizers: M. Fabian, J. Kąkol, K. Kuhlmann, V. Müller, W. Kubiś (chair)
One Ph.D. student position is available in the Institute of Mathematics. See section Positions and the electronic applications system.
The European Mathematical Society Council elected Prof. RNDr. Pavel Exner, DrSc., from the Institute of Nuclear Physics ASCR the new President of the EMS for the period 2015-2018.
ERC Consolidator Grant for Michal Koucký
Our long-time researcher Michal Koucký has been awarded ERC Consolidator Grant for the project "LBCAD – Lower bounds for combinatorial algorithms and dynamic problems" for 2014–2018. more
The project aims to show that known, somewhat efficient, algorithms for various problems cannot be substantially improved.close
Jean-Pierre Bourguignon, the 2nd President of the European Mathematical Society (1995–98), has been appointed the President of the European Research Council (ERC) since 1st January 2014. more
Since 2007, the ERC has funded European top researchers through grants given on the base of applications that are evaluated by expert panels. In Horizon 2020, the ERC appears as a crucial component in the EU long-term research strategy to support the most talented and creative scientists in blue-sky research.close

Bernard Bolzano Medal for Pavel Krejčí
Honorary Medal of the Czech Mathematical Society for Professor Alois Kufner
Eduard Feireisl's ERC Advanced Grant proposal "MATHEF – Mathematical Thermodynamics of Fluids" has been selected for funding in the period 2013–2018. A great success of the Czech mathematics as this is the first ERC Advanced Grant for mathematics in the Czech Republic and the only one assigned to a Czech scientist this year! Eduard Feireisl was the chair of the Scientific Committee of the 6th European Congress of Mathematics in Kraków, 2012, and is also the chair of the Scientific Committee of Equadiff 13 in Praha, 2013. The call for a PhD. student to work in the grant has been closed.
