ICMS – Sofia Inaugural Conference

ICMS – Sofia Inaugural Conference

The International Center for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS-Sofia) is a dynamic research unit for developing and dissemination of cutting edge new directions in Mathematics.

The Center was created following inspirational discussions with many members of the mathematical community in Bulgaria and the Bulgarian mathematical diaspora. In July 2019, ICMS-Sofia initiated its full-scale presence on the European mathematical scene with the full support of Acad. Julian Revalski, President of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. We have secured funds from the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Bulgaria and Simons Foundation. We are very grateful for their generous help.

This conference will serve as a unique opportunity for consolidation of our efforts and lifting our activities to the next level.

We are looking forward to meeting the challenges of our time and transforming ICMS into a major regional center of cutting edge collaborations, transfer of knowledge and reintegration of Bulgarian scientists.

Supported by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Bulgaria through the Scientific Programme “Enhancing the Research Capacity in Mathematical Sciences (PIKOM)”, Agreement № DO1-67/05.05.2022
