Dr. Emil Vitásek passed away

With a deep sorrow we inform that our colleague Dr. Emil Vitásek passed away on 28 August 2016 at the age of 85 years. Dr. Vitásek, a renown specialist in numerical mathematics, was one of those who connected their whole professional life with the Institute of Mathematics. He used to come regularly to the institute even many years after his retirement, taking part in the Seminar on Current Problems in Numerical Analysis and serving his colleagues in the Committee for Employee Care.
May he rest in peace.

Open consultation on Mathematics for Horizon 2020 next Work Programme

The European Commission is gathering ideas on Mathematics for Excellence in Science in Horizon 2020 to inform the future work programme with innovative mathematical content. The potential of mathematics was already explored in a very successful online consultation which provided excellent food for thought for a workshop held in November 2014. The conclusions of that workshop were collected in a report.
The present consultation open to all mathematicians till 30 April offers an important chance to support the creation of a so far missing niche for mathematical research in the future work programmes in Horizon 2020.
