The institution of a Mathematical Week has long attracted those interested and engaged in Mathematics. It has given and continues to give the opportunity for everyone to be informed and participate in work related to new discoveries, novel concepts, and continuous updating on theoretical and applied Mathematics. The Mathematical Week broadens its thematic scope with parallel events such as book fairs, painting exhibitions, project presentations, software learning and awards.
The Mathematical Week aims to promote constructive dialogue and reflection on Mathematics, but also to seek answers about the role of Mathematics in education, science and culture in the context of a cross-curricular, interdisciplinary approach.
Issues such as advances in research, new technologies, teaching methodology and applications are the ones expected to prevail in the topic-selection priority of the papers to be presented during the 5th Maths Week.
The 5th International Mathematical Week aims to reach a modern way and answer questions that are intensely preoccupying the mathematical community and particularly those questions arising because of the close relationship of Mathematics with other sciences and with significant human activities. This Mathematical Week aspires to offer, among other things, an opportunity to highlight the humanitarian character of Mathematics and to study their historical contribution to various branches of culture.
