SYM-OP-IS 2015, September 16-19, 2015

XLII International Symposium on Operations Research will be held in September, 16-19, in Ivanjica, Serbia.

Scope and Objectives:

SYM-OP-IS has been a national symposium with international participation since 1974. Over past years, the number of international participants was growing, and from this year SYM-OP-IS has officially become an international scientific meeting. It presents an annual gathering of operational researchers in order to exchange scientific and technical information achieved in the development and application of Operations research methods.

The Symposium Programme comprises plenary lectures and theme sections which accommodate the exchange of ideas and the review of relevant issues through valuable encounters of the representatives of the academic body and industry, both from Serbia and abroad.

The main aim of the Symposium is the development and applications of new Operations research methods, models and techniques. We believe that this year program will be interesting as much as in previous years, not only for researchers but also for students and businessmen who are interested in implementation of new  solutions based on the methods of operational research in order to improve their business.

First Call for Papers for SYM-OP-IS 2015, September 16-19, 2015

European Student Conference in Mathematics EUROMATH 2015

The Cyprus Mathematical Society and the Thales Foundation, in cooperation with the Le-MATH Project Focus Group, the Hellenic Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Society of the South Eastern Europe and the European Mathematical Society are organizing the European Student Conference in Mathematics - EUROMATH 2015.

The event is growing and at the moment we have more than 300 registered students and teacher and our goal is to increase it to 400+.

Since we will have more than 90 presentations from students and more than 10 workshops for students, we cannot accept more contributions for the program, as it is full, but we will be happy to have conference participants.

Short biography

Dr Zsolt Lavicza, Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge

After receiving his degrees in mathematics and physics in Hungary, Zsolt began his postgraduate studies in applied mathematics at the University of Cambridge.

While teaching mathematics at the University of Cincinnati he became interested in researching issues in the teaching and learning mathematics. In particular, he focused on investigating issues in relation to the use of technology in undergraduate mathematics education.

Since then, both at the University of Michigan and Cambridge, working with Deborah Ball, Hyman Bass, Paul Andrews, and Kenneth Ruthve, he has worked on several research projects examining technology and mathematics teaching in a variety of classroom environments.

Currently, Zsolt is working as an Associate Lecturer in Mathematics Education at the University of Cambridge. He is also co-ordinating the development of local GeoGebra Institutes and offering research support within the International GeoGebra Institute. He serves as a Director of Research at the GeoMaTech project as well as advising research projects at different countries.

We invite all interested colleagues and students to attend.
