On 29 and 30 May 2008
Symposium will be held at Kasteel Oud-Poelgeest
The invited speakers are: Mai Gehrke (RU Nijmegen), Thomas Hales (University of Pittsburgh), Dietrich Notbohm (VU Amsterdam), and DIAMANT-postdocs Peter Csorba (TU Eindhoven), Nicole Immorlica (CWI Amsterdam), and Lenny Taelman (Leiden). We encourage Ph.D. students to propose talks for the remaining time slots.

NWO Call for Tenure Track positions22-7-2016
NWO has opened a call for tenure track positions. Proposals for these positions, which include one PhD position for each tenure track position, can be submitted directly to NWO by professors from the 4 mathematics clusters, including Diamant.

Dion Gijswijt and Jordan Ellenberg independently substantially improve capset bound 25-5-2016
A capset in a finite dimensional vector space over the field with 3 elements is a subset that contains no 3-term arithmetic progressions. Dion Gijswijt (TU Delft) and Jordan Ellenberg have independently obtained a bound on the size of a capset that for the first time improves substantially on the trivial bound 3^n. Read more in Terence Tao's blog about these developments.
