The Career Development Forum, which took place on June 5 and 6, 2018, in the courtyard of the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics at the Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”, was attended by highly interested students. 68 organizations – IT companies, research and educational institutions and employers from leading national companies presented their work to the students of FMI and to all other interested parties. The event was organized by the FMI’s Career Center, and the main sponsor was SAP Labs Bulgaria. IMI presented its work at a special booth in the Faculty’s foyer, where the students were informed about the internships and PhD programs offered by IMI, they had the opportunity to meet in person with scientists from the various research divisions in [...]
The Institute of Mathematics and Informatics will Participate in the Career Development Forum at FMI
Career Development Forum in the courtyard of the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics of the Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” will be held once again on June 5 and 6, 2018, under the motto “I know it and want to prove it”. The event was organized by the FMI’s Career Center, and the main sponsor is SAP Labs Bulgaria. CompueterWorld and Careers are media partners. IMI will present its work at a special booth in the Faculty’s lobby, where everyone will be able to learn more about the offered internships, PhD programs and priority research fields, as well as to meet in person with researchers from the Institute.

Intel ISEF is the world’s largest student science competition. Zvezdin Bessarabov and Chavdar Lalov competed with 1,700 participants from 81 countries in Pittsburgh for a prize pool of over US$ 4 million. The Bulgarian participants won two special awards and one prize of the main jury. This is the first year in which the entire Bulgarian team won Intel ISEF awards and is also one of the most successful years for our country. Bulgaria has been participating in Intel ISEF since 2013, the participation being funded by the Club Young Scientists with the support of Intel and the Society for Science and the Public. More than two thirds of our participants up to now have participated in the events of HSSIMI (УчИМИ) and other initiatives of [...]

Dr. Peter Rashkov from the Department of Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis at IMI is representative for Bulgaria and Management Committee member for the COST Action „ Investigation and Mathematical Analysis of Avant-garde Disease Control via Mosquito Nano-Tech-Repellents“ (IMAAC 2017-2021, funded by Horizon 2020 programme of EU, www.imaac.eu) and participates in workgroup „Mathematical Analysis, Data-Analysis and Statistics“. IMAAC's aim is to investigate and perform mathematical analysis of the effect of avant-garde control measures in vector-borne diseases involving day-time active mosquitoes transmitting diseases (dengue, zika, chikungunya and yellow fever). This involves avant-garde measures in textile and paint production based on nano- and micro-particles that release chemicals like repellents in well portioned dosages. The spectrum of possible combinations of nano- or micro-particles, repellents, insecticides and types [...]
