A Summer of Conferences

A Summer of Conferences
Jul. 9, 2013

Welcome to a summer - or depending on the side of the globe: winter - full of conferences related to math art and math communication! IMAGINARY will be present at some of them, at others we would love to be there and hope to do so next time. Please find below a list of six upcoming conferences from July to September 2013, from Australia to Argentina and from Netherlands to Italy.

BRIDGES Conference 2013 in Enschede, Netherlands

The International annual conference of Bridges for Mathematical Connections in Art, Music, and Science was created in 1998 and is conducted annually. During the conference, practicing mathematicians, scientists, artists, educators, musicians, writers, computer scientists, sculptures, dancers, weavers, and model builders will come together in a lively and highly charged atmosphere of mutual exchange and encouragement. It will be held from July 27-31, 2013 in Enschede, Netherlands.

IMAGINARY will present two papers at the conference. More info on the IMAGINARY event page or on:

Symmetry Festival in Delft, Netherlands

Let’s discover (dis)symmetries of the heartwarming city of Delft together from 2-7 August, 2013. The festival includes a scientific conference, workshops, exhibitions and performances with music, movement and multimedia. The Symmetry Festival is an event series organised by the Symmetrion under the auspices of the International Symmetry Association (ISA) and under the patronage of the UNESCO.

ESMA Conference in Cagliary, Italy

The second conference of the European Society for Mathematics and the Arts (ESMA) will be held from September 18 to September 20, 2013 at the University of Cagliari, Cagliari, Italy. The main themes of the Conference are mathematical tools and software for the creation of artistic scientific visualizations, analysis of artistic works from the mathematical point of view and the pedagogical uses of scientific artistic works.

7th International Conference of Mathematics and Design in Tucumán, Argentina

This international conference on Mathematics and Design will take place from September 2-6, 2013 at the Facultad de Arquitectura y Urbanismo, Universidad Nacional de Tucumán, Tucumán, Argentina. The objective of this conference is to convoke designers and scientists from differents fields of knowledge, interested in the active interaction between Mathematics, Art and Design. It includes topics like mathematical design, audio-visuals, visualizations and mathematical art.
