(NMC and) DIAMANT Symposium Spring 2018

On 4+5 april 2018 the DIAMANT Symposium will be held at Hotel Koningshof in Veldhoven. The Dutch Mathematical Congress (NMC2018) is held at the same location, on 3+4 april 2018.

The NMC2018 will feature a DIAMANT minisymposium (on 4 april), with talks by Frank Vallentin (U Koeln) and Ada Boralevi (Politecnico di Torino).

The Diamant symposium proper starts on 4 april at 7 PM with a conference dinner, after the NMC2018 has closed. The scientific programme of the Diamant symposium starts on 5 april at 9 AM.

Invited speakers of the DIAMANT symposium of 5 april include Christian Haase (FU Berlin), Djordjo Milovic (UC London) and Frits Spieksma (KU Leuven/TU/e).

How to contribute a talk

PhD students and postdocs are warmly welcomed to submit a contributed talk (25-30 mins.) to the Diamant symposium. In the registration form (see below) there is an option to submit title and abstract. Alternatively, after registration, a title+abstract can be sent to Robin de Jong at a later date.


A growing list with abstracts can be found here.  The symposium starts with a dinner on Wednesday 4 april, 7:00 PM, after the NMC has closed. The scientific programme starts on Thursday at 9:00 AM and ends around 4:00 PM and can be found here.

Conference fee + accommodation

There is full DIAMANT support for DIAMANT members (for the symposium, NOT for the NMC!). DIAMANT members are full and associate professors listed here, as well as their research group members. 


The registration form can be found here.

NWO Call for Tenure Track positions

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. Diamant professors are warmly encouraged to submit proposals. Read more.

Dion Gijswijt and Jordan Ellenberg independently substantially improve capset bound

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.
