Objective

This project embodies four workshops on topics in which Europe has a strong interest and provides advanced training in modern topics in mathematic and computer science. The workshops in this series of events cover collective dynamics and new computational developments: Workshops 1 and 4 deal with topics in the development of information technologies, network stability and quantum computing, while workshop 2 addresses the theme of mathematical proofs of algorithms used widely in computer algebra. Workshop 3 is dedicated to the mathematical description of complex biological and biochemical systems from cells to the spread of diseases.

The approach is creative and combines input from otherwise separated research areas. Thus coming together at the Lorentz Centre is essential to the development of the field, the advancement of the research and the possibility for young researchers to gain insight and contacts beyond their own speciality. Young eligible researchers will receive the opportunity to discuss and collaborate with leading senior colleagues: All workshops involve a mix of junior and senior participants with the participation of junior researchers normally between 30 and 50%. Co-organisation of the workshops by young researchers is promoted. The workshops are run and hosted by the Lorentz Centre at Leiden University in the Netherlands, in the open and stimulating spirit for which the Centre has earned its reputation.
