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:
