The Second BMS – BGSMath Junior Meeting will take place from Wednesday 26 to Friday 28 June 2019 in Berlin. On Wednesday, the event will be held at TU Berlin (MA 141) and on Thursday and Friday in the Lecture Hall at Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB).


The Berlin Mathematical School (BMS) and the Barcelona Graduate School of Mathematics (BGSMath) share the common goal of striving for excellence in their doctoral and postdoctoral training programs.

In 2016, a memorandum of understanding was signed by both graduate schools in order to boost collaborative work between young researchers from both institutions. The schools declared their intention to cooperate together in initiatives aimed at promoting the mobility of and exchange between students and faculty members by way of events such as the Junior Meeting; joint summer schools; mutual visits by advanced students and postdocs of each institution; and other scientific activities.

The ultimate goal is to create strong scientific exchange, strengthen research collaboration between the respective math communities, and enhance the multicultural environment of both graduate schools. The First BMS - BGSMath Junior Meeting was held in Barcelona on 9 and 10 October 2017. The second Junior Meeting aims to intensify current collaborations and create new links between the two schools.


Scientific sessions will be focused on the following areas: 
 - Algebra, geometry, topology
 - Probability theory, statistics, analysis and PDEs
 - Discrete mathematics and computer science.


Each session will consist of a keynote address by a senior researcher and talks from young researchers from both communities. Scientific activities will start on Wednesday 26 June in the afternoon and will be followed by a welcome reception. On Thursday 27 June, there will be a conference dinner.
