Already, more than 50 students have registered. Most of them are from different ECMI nodes – University of Kaiserslautern, Technical University of Dresden, University of Koblenz, Johannes Kepler University, University of Milan, Autonomous University of Barcelona, University of Santiago de Compostela, Technical University of Denmark, University of Oxford, University of Strathclyde, Lund University, Lappeenranta University of Technology, Chalmers University of Technology, Tampere University of Technology, University of Jyväskylä, Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”, Wroclaw University of Technology, University of Lisbon, University of Coimbra, University of Novi Sad, Universities Blaise Pascal, Paris-3, Lille-1, Strasbourg. The participants from the last 4 universities are sponsored by the French Agency for Interaction in Mathematics with Business and Society (AMIES).
The Organizing Committee of ECMIMW’2016 was able to sponsor 8 students, 2 of them with a full and 6 of them with a half Registration fee, thanks to the financial support of the ECMI Educational Committee. The procedure for sponsoring was announced on the website of ECMIMW’2016 and the evaluation was carefully made by the Organizing Committee with the courtesy of Dr. Matylda Jablonska-Sabuka from the ECMI Educational Committee.
The participants will work on 10 projects. The description of the projects together with references and additional materials are already uploaded on the website http://ecmimw2016.fmi.uni-sofia.bg/Problems.html.
We are extremely grateful to the colleagues who undertook the task to pose problems for ECMIMW’2016. They did it accurately and expeditiously. These are (in order of problems on the website): Stanislav Harizanov, Institute of Information and Communication Technologies, BAS, Bulgaria; Jean Rodolphe Roche, ESSTIN, Institut Elie Cartan de Lorraine, University of Lorraine, France; José Augusto Ferreira, CMUC-Department of Mathematics, University of Coimbra, Portugal; Cláudia Nunes, Department of Mathematics, IST, University of Lisbon, Portugal; Jakub Ślęzak, Wrocław University of Technology, Poland; Sourav Mondal, Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK; Milana Pavić, University of Novi Sad, Serbia; Stela Zhelezova, Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, BAS, Bulgaria; Gerardo Oleaga, Faculty of Mathematics, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain.
We hope, ECMIMW’2016 will be a successful event. We will try to make it also a pleasant experience for the students and the instructors, showing them the rich history, sights and beauty of Sofia and also Plovdiv, one of the oldest and most charming towns in Bulgaria.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Sofia!
