ECMath Colloquium

The purpose of this biannual scientific colloquium is bringing together mathematicians, scientists, and engineers to enjoy a series of talks on one topical issue of current or emerging interest to several fields within mathematics. The colloquium intends to foster scientific communication within ECMath and beyond.
