The aim of this Colloquium is to consolidate the network among young researchers and postgraduate students from all across the country, specially in the branches of Mathematics studied in our School - Algebra, Analysis, Combinatorics, Applied Mathematics and Operational Research. The event will be divided in two parallel sessions (Pure and Applied Maths) each of them with plenary talks in the morning and short (20 minute slots) postgraduate talks in the afternoon.
Call for abstracts
Postgraduate students are encouraged to submit an abstract for a short talk. Funding is available for students of the universities in the MAGIC network, see below.
