The Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the Eötvös Loránd University and the János Bolyai Mathematical Society announce that a conference dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Paul Erdős will be held from Monday, July 1st to Friday, July 5th, 2013, in Budapest, Hungary.
The distinguished main patron of the conference is József Pálinkás, the President of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
The topic of the conference includes all basic fields that Paul Erdős contributed to:
Number Theory, Combinatorics (including Combinatorial Algebra, Combinatorial Geometry and Theoretical Computer Science), Analysis (including Approximation Theory and Ergodic Theory), Probability Theory, and Set Theory among others. The main goal of the conference is to explore Paul Erdős' wide ranging contributions to mathematics, and to survey the trends of development originating in his work.
The program consists of plenary lectures and parallel sessions, as well as a
poster session. Note that lectures are only by invitation.
Plenary lectures: These will be expository lectures on particular areas related to Paul Erdős' work. We emphasize that these talks will be addressed to a broad mathematical audience. The plenary speakers will be
A volume containing the plenary talks and several invited papers of the topics of the conference will be available during the conference.
The registration fee of a limited number of graduate students, postdocs and young researchers (age limit 35) will be (partially) supported. People who wish to receive reduced registration fee should submit an application containing their vita and list of publications in PDF form to the conference's email address.
