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.

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).

Conference Applications of Mathematics 2015

In honor of the birthday anniversaries of Ivo Babuška (90), Milan Práger (85), and Emil Vitásek (85)

Wednesday, 18 November 2015 to Saturday, 21 November 2015 in the main lecture hall of the Institute of Mathematics CAS

Professors Ivo Babuška, Milan Práger, and Emil Vitásek are renowned experts in numerical analysis and  computational methods. Their fruitful scientific careers started in Prague, in the Institute of Mathematics of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences (now Czech Academy of Sciences). They collaborated there on various projects including the computational analysis of the construction technology for the gravitational Orlík Dam on the Vltava River in Bohemia (1956-1959). In 1966 they published their joint book entitled Numerical Processes in Differential Equations, one of the first books concerned with round-off errors and numerical stability.
Ivo Babuška left Czechoslovakia in 1968 and works in the U.S.A.
It is an honor for the Institute of Mathematics to host a conference on the occasion of their birthdays.
