Trends in Mathematical Sciences

Next June 10 – 14, 2024, our FAU MoD, Researcher Center for Mathematics of Data at FAU, Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg is hosting the first “Trends in Mathematical Sciences” conference thanks to the support of our FAU DCN-AvH, Chair for Dynamics, Control, Machine Learning and Numerics – Alexander von Humboldt Professorship and the Alexander von Humboldt Stiftung (Humboldt Foundation) in hybrid mode (on-site/online) in Erlangen – Bavaria, Germany.

The Trends in Mathematical Sciences’ primary objective is to establish a collaborative platform for researchers from Latin America and Europe, fostering networks and strengthening scientific and technological cooperation in mathematical sciences. Emphasizing optimization, control and inverse problems, data science, and applied mathematics, the event aims to explore contemporary challenges and emerging applications within these domains.

The event has two main goals:
– To provide a platform for in-depth exploration of mathematical sciences, encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration and highlighting diverse theoretical foundations and transformative applications.
– To gather leading researchers in applied mathematics, presenting the state of the art and exploring future horizons within the discipline.

The multidisciplinary nature of the conference will address various applied topics, including population dynamics, material homogenization, stochastic differential equations, random growth models, computational fluid mechanics, optimization, and the application of artificial intelligence in mathematical modeling. Thus, the range of topics to be addressed is wide and this is evident in the people who are confirmed to participate in the conference. These are just a few glimpses into the diverse facets of mathematical sciences that will be explored at this congress.

See the poster of the conference



This event is open to: Public, Students, Postdocs, Professors, Faculty, Alumni



The event revolves around two primary types of activities:
• Plenary lectures: Two to three per day, featuring distinguished experts who will provide an up-to-date view of their respective fields, pose open questions and outline future lines of research.

• Thematic sessions: Tailored to smaller groups with common interests, these informal sessions provide a platform for numerous participants to present their work and foster collaborative dynamics.
