The Norwegian Academy of Sciences and Letters calls for nominations of candidates for the Abel Prize 2015. The Abel Prize recognizes outstanding scientific work in the field of mathematics, including mathematical aspects of computer science, mathematical physics, probability, numerical analysis and scientific computing, statistics and applications of mathematics in the sciences. Nominations should be submitted by September 15, 2014.
One Ph.D. student position and one postdoctoral position are available in the Institute of Mathematics. See section Positions and the electronic applications system.
Institute of Mathematics AS CR, Prague, 25–31 August 2014
Organizers: Tomáš Bodnár, Giovanni Paolo Galdi, Šárka Nečasová more
The aim of the summer school is to present a comprehensive series of lectures on various aspects of problems involving particles in flows. It is organized as a multidisciplinary event with topics ranging from theoretical and numerical mathematics up to physics and applications. The emphasize will be on models related to topics originating in environmental, biomedical and industrial applications. The summer course is prepared for graduate students, young scientists, and other interested specialists. Besides of the course lectures, the program will include a one day workshop (on Wednesday, August 27) dedicated to short, more advanced lectures given by attending scientists.close
The seminar will be organized by Eduard Feireisl (Prague), David Gérard-Varet (Paris), Rupert Klein (Berlin) and Antonín Novotný (Toulon) in Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 23-29 November, 2014. more
The main goal is to present and discuss the state of the art of the mathematical theory of complete fluid systems, with the emphasis put on the underlying thermodynamical principles. Highlighting the new emerging trends we aim to inspire young researchers in their future activities.close

Ing. Jakub Šístek, PhD., received from the President of the Academy of Sciences Prof. Jiří Drahoš the Otto Wichterle Premium for young researchers. The award connected with a financial premium of 90 000 crowns in the three subsequent years has been established in 2002 to encourage and support young promising researchers in institutes of the Academy of Sciences. Jakub Šístek is one of 23 young researches awarded the Premium this year.
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.
