COLLOQUIUM: 15 YEARS OF A FRENCH-RUSSIAN LAB

Monday, 03 September 2018 to Tuesday, 04 September 2018 IUM, Bolshoy Vlasyevskii, 11, Hall 401 Moscow center for continuous mathematical education

COLLOQUIUM: 15 YEARS OF A FRENCH-RUSSIAN LAB

CNRS – HSE – IITP – IUM – Skoltech – Steklov Institute

Interdisciplinary Scientific Center Poncelet (ISCP) is an international scientific unit (CNRS UMI 2615). Its two main objectives are:

  • to conduct joint research projects in the fields of basic and applied mathematics, theoretical physics and computer science;
  • to become a showcase for this research, by promoting exchanges of knowledge between the main Russian and French scientific centers, through conferences, scholarships, stays and internships for young researchers.

ISCP supports free exchange of ideas, creative and friendly atmosphere, and big number of scientific events. Few lines of ISCP history:

  • Founded in 2002 as a “Laboratorie International Franco-Russe de Mathématique, Informatique et Physique” (LIFR MI2P);
  • Since 2006 – Poncelet Lab (after French Mathematician J.-V. Poncelet), prolonged in 2010 and in 2013;
  • Since  2017  –  ISCP,  presently  carries  research  in  mathematical  physics,  mathematics  and informatics (including bioinformatics).

We celebrate these 15 years together with our friends and colleagues and we use this opportunity to highlight the main joint scientific achievements and events. We plan to have at a two-day colloquium the “historic day” (3 September) and the “scientific day” (4 September).
