Mathematics has been and still is a tool box that can be used in a wide variety of applications. In the recent two decades though, mathematics has turned into an important production factor. It has, in particular, a significant impact on industrial innovation cycles. Today, mathematicians model, simulate, and optimize real-world processes arising in many areas of industry and society. The influence of this methodology is especially strong in key technologies.
Due to their broad usability the mathematical sub-fields of discrete mathematics, optimization, numerical analysis, scientific computing, and stochastic analysis have experienced a considerable growth and are now employed to optimize, for example, various networks and train circulations, to develop models for quality assurance and to visualize big data.During the conference, German and French experts will present examples of best practice solutions and applications in talks and open discussions.
Beside meeting other mathematicians you will have the chance to discover the mathematical side of the German capital on a guided tour through the “Berliner Dom” or the "3D Labor" of the Technical University Berlin.
The Participation is free of charge. The Conference will be held in English.To register, please use the attached PDF.

The scientific and political community alike stress the importance of German Antarctic research
Joint Press Release from the BMBF and AWI
The Antarctic is a frigid continent south of the Antarctic Circle, where researchers are the only inhabitants. Despite the hostile conditions, here the Alfred...
World first experiments on sensor that may revolutionise everything from medical devices to unmanned vehicles
The new sensor - capable of detecting vibrations of living cells - may revolutionise everything from medical devices to unmanned vehicles.
Dead and alive at the same time? Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have implemented Erwin Schrödinger’s paradoxical gedanken experiment employing an entangled atom-light state.
In 1935 Erwin Schrödinger formulated a thought experiment designed to capture the paradoxical nature of quantum physics. The crucial element of this gedanken...
Cellulose obtained from wood has amazing material properties. Empa researchers are now equipping the biodegradable material with additional functionalities to produce implants for cartilage diseases using 3D printing.
It all starts with an ear. Empa researcher Michael Hausmann removes the object shaped like a human ear from the 3D printer and explains:
The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity for certain diamond-like carbon layers in combination with organic lubricants. Based on this knowledge, it is now possible to formulate design rules for supra lubricating layer-lubricant combinations. The results are presented in an article in Nature Communications, volume 10.
One of the most important prerequisites for sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility is minimizing friction. Research and industry have been dedicated...
