Scientific conferences

Location: University of Minnesota

14 November 2018 - 16 November 2018

The Institute for Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) is hosting the sixth Abel Conference in honour of the 2018 Abel Prize Laureate, Robert Langlands.

The IMA is pleased to host the annual Abel Conference in honor of the Abel Prize Laureate. In collaboration with the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, the conference is designed to showcase the scope and impact of the laureate’s work.

The Abel Prize recognizes outstanding scientific work in the field of mathematics, including mathematical aspects of computer science, mathematical physics, probability, numerical analysis and scientific computing, statistics, and also applications of mathematics in the sciences.

The prize is meant to recognize contributions of extraordinary depth and influence to the mathematical sciences. Such work may have resolved fundamental problems, created powerful new techniques, introduced unifying principles or opened up major new fields of research. The intent is to award prizes over the course of time in a broad range of fields within the mathematical sciences.
