CSASC 2016

Venue: Barcelona, 20–23 September 2016
Organizer: Societat Catalana de Matemàtiques
CSASC is a joint meeting of the Czech, Slovenian, Austrian, Slovak and Catalan mathematical societies which started in Prague in 2010 out of former bilateral meetings of the Czech and Catalan societies, and was held in Krems (Austria) in 2011 and Koper (Slovenia) in 2013. This fourth edition in Barcelona displays the continuing lively relationship among the mathematicians from the five societies within the network of multilateral meetings in the EMS.

  About prizes and laureates

Otto Wichterle Award for young researchers awarded to Jan Hladký

President of the Czech Academy of Sciences Prof. Jiří Drahoš awarded the Otto Wichterle Award for young researchers to Dr. Jan Hladký, member of the Department of Mathematical Logic and Theoretical Computer Science. The award has been established in 2002 to encourage and support young promising researchers in institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences. It is connected with a financial premium in the subsequent three years. Jan Hladký is one of 21 laureates this year.

Emil Jeřábek received the Neuron Award for Promising Young Scientists

The Neuron Fund for Support of Science awarded Dr. Emil Jeřábek of the Department of Mathematical Logic and Theoretical computer Science the Neuron Award for Promising Young Scientists. The award is designated to acknowledge Czech scientists under the age of 40, who have achieved excellent scientific results, and to recognise their activities and promote their future progress.

Open consultation on Mathematics for Horizon 2020 next Work Programme

The European Commission is gathering ideas on Mathematics for Excellence in Science in Horizon 2020 to inform the future work programme with innovative mathematical content. The potential of mathematics was already explored in a very successful online consultation which provided excellent food for thought for a workshop held in November 2014. The conclusions of that workshop were collected in a report.
The present consultation open to all mathematicians till 30 April offers an important chance to support the creation of a so far missing niche for mathematical research in the future work programmes in Horizon 2020.
  Final report

Eduard Feireisl received the Neuron Award for Contribution to Science 2015

Professor Eduard Feireisl received the prestigious Neuron Award for Contribution to Science awarded on 1st December 2015 by the Neuron Foundation for Support of Science. He is a worldwide renown specialist in mathematical theory of fluid dynamics whose expertise has been credited by the prestigious ERC Advanced Grant MATHEF. We are proud that after Miroslav Fiedler and Ivo Babuška this is already the third Neuron Award for a researcher who is or used to be member of the Institute of Mathematics CAS.
