EQUADIFF 2015, Lyon
The Equadiff conferences are a series of international meetings devoted to the field of differential equations in the broadest sense.
On July 6–10, 2015, hosted by Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 at the heart of the second largest urban area of France, Equadiff 2015 continues the tradition of the Equadiff series.
Program on Higher Structures in Geometry and Physics
The activity aims to bring together researchers from algebra, geometry and physics that are working on related and interlinked problems albeit so far in their own respective languages.

125 years of the Czech Academies of Sciences (and Arts)
On Friday, 23rd January, 125 years had passed since the foundation of the Czech Academy of Emperor Franz Josef I for Sciences, Literature and Art (ČAVU), the predecessor of today’s the Czech Academy of Sciences. This significant jubilee will be commemorated by the Czech Academy of Sciences with several ceremonial events, exhibitions and lectures throughout 2015 - see the attached schedule of events (in Czech).
Schedule of events
Otto Wichterle Premium for young researchers awarded to Ondřej Kreml
President of the Academy of Sciences Prof. Jiří Drahoš awarded the Otto Wichterle Premium for young researchers to Dr. Ondřej Kreml, member of the Department of Evolution Differential Equations. The award has been established in 2002 to encourage and support young promising researchers in institutes of the Academy of Sciences. It is connected with a financial premium in the subsequent three years. Ondřej Kreml is one of 21 young researches in the Academy awarded the Premium this year.

The 11th Eduard Čech Lecture: Jean-Pierre Bourguignon, IHES
Modern Geometry: from Local to Global, from Smooth to Rough, from Static to Dynamic
Invitation to the Čech Lecture
Invitation to the panel discussion
Friday, 31 October 2014 at 9:30 a.m., in the main lecture hall of the Institute of Mathematics
Jean-Pierre Bourguignon is well known for his contributions to modern differential geometry. He was the president of the French Mathematical Society (1990–1992), and the second president of the European Mathematical Society (1995–1998). Since 1994, and until his retirement in August 2013, he has served mathematicians and physicists all over the world as director of the prestigious research centre Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques at Bures-sur-Yvette, close to Paris. Since 2014 he is the President of the European Research Council (ERC).
The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion
about the ERC and mathematics in the Czech Republic.
Striving and Supporting Excellence in Science, 30 October 2014
The Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic organizes a meeting on the occasion of the visit of Jean-Pierre Bourguignon, President of the European Research Council.

On June 24-26 the international workshop Rate independent processes and evolution - RIPE60
was organized in the Institute of Mathematics AS CR by Eduard Feireisl (Prague) and Elisabetta Rocca (Berlin) on the occasion of 60-th birthday of RNDr. Pavel Krejčí, CSc. The workshop was attented by more than 30 of his collaborators and co-authors from different countries. Part of the workshop was a ceremony where the President of the Scientific Council AS CR, Prof. Jiří Čtyroký, handed to Pavel Krejčí the Honorary Bernard Bolzano Medal for Merits in Mathematical Sciences, awarded by the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. Prof. Jürgen Sprekels, director of the Weierstrass Institut für Angewandte Analysis und Stochastik in Berlin, Pavel's friend and collaborator, delivered the laudatio
