UNIC Mathematics Workshop 2023

University of Zagreb

May 22-25, 2023

Workshop description

The UNIC Mathematics Workshop 2023 aims at bringing together mathematicians from several universities under the umbrella of the UNIC network. The workshop then seeks to provide space for collaboration and cooperation among participating mathematicians to build a network and advance institutional capacities. Within the context of the workshop, participants will present possible avenues to develop joint study programs and possible joint PhD supervision, among other forms of collaboration. The workshop serves to foster collaborative research efforts that can benefit the wider mathematical community. It will feature a presentation of the future study program Theoretical Mathematics, that is under discussion, several mathematical lectures on diverse topics, a discussion table, and possibilities for networking. The workshop is open to mathematicians from all UNIC institutions who are interested in the future study program or fostering collaboration with UNIC colleagues, as well as to researchers and PhD students who will benefit from the workshop scientific program.
