In-house Symposium, Feb 3, 2018

The first In-House Symposium of the Department of Mathematics was conceived as a platform for post-doctoral researchers and PhD students to present their research, and to engender fruitful discussion amongst them and faculty members with disparate research interests. The Symposium was held on February 03, 2018, and Prof. V. Srinivas (TIFR Mumbai) was present as an external guest. In addition to his plenary talk, there were six other talks; three by post-docs and three by PhD students. The Symposium ended with a poster presentation by some PhD students, along with lively discussions. The culture of free exchange of ideas that has been a core value of the department was there for all to see, and it is hoped that future iterations continue building on this.

Science Academies' Lecture Workshop on "Geometry and Topology" (20-21 Jan 2018)

The purpose of this two-day workshop is to provide an opportunity to young teachers, researchers and students of Mathematics to learn about important topics in Geometry, Topology and their applications from active researchers and experts.

About the Workshop

A two days lecture workshop on “Geometry and Topology” was held on 20th & 21th Jan 2018 at IISER Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. The workshop was organized by Department of Mathematics, in association with Indian National Science Academy, New Delhi, The National Academy of Sciences, Allahabad and Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore.

Prof. (Dr.) A. J. Parameswaran, School of Mathematics, Tata Institute of Fundamental research was the workshop Convener and Dr. Sanjay Kumar Singh, Assistant Professor, Department of Mathematics, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research was the Coordinator. Fellows from Science Academies’ and eminent academicians from reputed institutions were invited in the workshop to disseminate the proposed concepts to the participants.

The lectures in this workshop have covered specific topics which were relevant to the teachers' classroom instructions. An important component of this program was the discussion hour during which the participants interacted with each other and cleared their doubts and worked-out routine into advanced exercises. In this workshop, participant learned the basics of mathematics and use them to study some specific topics in Geometry and Topology. Through these topics, Speakers has discussed some questions of current interests to get a flavor of ongoing research in these areas.

The main intention to organize this workshop was to promote mathematics in Bhopal and improve quality of teaching which is essential for motivating students for research in Mathematics. We hope that after attending this school, our participants would be able to motivate and encourage their students to study Mathematics at the higher level.

IWM: Regional Workshop on Career & Opportunities (October 7-8, 2017)

This workshop was held during October 7-8, 2017 at IISER Bhopal. It was a one-and-a-half day workshop that was open to all post-graduate students, Ph.D. scholars, research fellows and college/university faculty members primarily working in various areas of mathematics. There was a special focus however on women participants. The aim was to encourage and support large-scale participation from women, and to provide an exposure to research and a platform to discuss career opportunities in mathematics.
