RIKEN iTHES - Tohoku AIMR - Tokyo IIS Joint Symposium
This is a symposium to cerebrate the establishment of the Mathematical Sciences Team in interdisciplinary Theoretical Science (iTHES) Research Group at RIKEN. The symposium is organized jointly with Advanced Institute for Materials Research (AIMR) at Tohoku Univ. and Institute of Industrial Science (IIS) at The Univ. of Tokyo.
At this symposium, researchers from various branches of mathematical sciences are invited, including pure mathematics, applied mathematics, theoretical physics and theoretical biology.We will also have a keynote lecture and panel discussions to exchange ideas about the future role of mathematics to intertwine different fields and disciplines. All talks are given in Japanese, while the slides are prepared in English.

Dates: April 28 (Thurs.) 2016, 10:00am - 6:00 pm
Venue: RIKEN Wako campus, Suzuki Umetaro Hall (building S01)
Language: Japanese (slides are in English)
