Mathematics and Computer Science in Practice: Potential and Reality

Institute of Information Theory and Automation CAS, Institute of Computer Science CAS and Institute of Mathematics CAS organize an interdisciplinary workshop with the aim to discuss about the productive power of mathematics in real world applications. Experts from economically active companies, universities, and specialized research institutions will share their positive and negative experience about how mathematics has been, can be, ought to be, and should not be used to enhance social and economic progress in the 21th century. Special attention will be paid to examples of good and bad practice in applied mathematics.
The workshop will be held on 9–11 December 2015 at the Institute of Information Theory and Automation CAS in Prague.

Dny otevřených dveří v Matematickém ústavu AV ČR | Open Houses in the Institute of Mathematics CAS

Tradiční Dny otevřených dveří v Matematickém ústavu AV ČR jsou součástí Týdne vědy a techniky Akademie věd ČR, nejrozsáhlejšího vědeckého festivalu v České republice pořádaného Akademií věd ČR ve spolupráci s dalšími institucemi ve dnech 1.–15. listopadu 2015. Široká veřejnost a především studenti středních škol mají možnost nahlédnout do pracoven, laboratoří a knihoven a poznat, jak se dělá věda. Badatelé z výzkumných pracovišť AV ČR připravují širokou nabídku exkurzí, přednášek, výstav a diskusních večerů, ve kterých představují své výzkumné projekty, předvádějí nejmodernější vědecké přístroje a experimenty a přibližují návštěvníkům nejnovější trendy v oblasti vědy. V Matematickém ústavu AV ČR se Dny otevřených dveří uskuteční na pražském pracovišti ve dnech 4.–6. listopadu 2015, v brněnské pobočce 11. listopadu 2015.

Traditional Open Houses in the Institute of Mathematics CAS will be held as part of the Week of Science and Technology, the most extensive scientific festival in the Czech Republic, organized by the Czech Academy of Sciences in cooperation with other institutions from 1st to 15th November 2015. The scientists from the research workplaces of the Academy of Sciences prepare a wide offer of lectures, presentations, panel discussions, seminars, excursions, exhibitions and discussion evenings, in which they present their research projects, the most modern scientific apparatuses and outline for the attendees the latest trends in the areas of science in the Czech Republic and the world. The Prague departments in the Institute of Mathematics will be open to public from 4th to 6th November 2015, the Brno branch on 11th November 2015.
