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 of textiles or paint has not been well studied. Efficacy studies in cases using these control measures in combination with vaccines have not been performed, which stipulates the need for mathematical modelling and analysis.
70th Anniversary of the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences
On October 27th The Institute of Mathematics and Informatics celebrates its 70th anniversary. The anniversary will be marked by celebration and exhibition on the history and achievements of the Institute in the Great Hall of Bulgarian Academy of Sciences from 2 p.m. Patron of the event is the President of the Republic of Bulgaria Mr. Rumen Radev.
On October 25th and 26th, the IMI Multimedia Hall will host a scientific conference titled “Sharing Ideas,” which will present the achievements of IMI scientists. The project activities of IMI will be presented by an exhibition located in the foyer of the 3rd floor.
The French Académie des Sciences awarded one of its prizes for 2017 – Le Prix Leconte to our colleague Nikolay Tzvetkov.
The Leconte Prix (in French: Prix Leconte) was founded in 1886 by the French Academy of Sciences to honor breakthroughs in mathematics, physics, chemistry, natural sciences or medicine. In recent years, the award has been awarded to specific categories of mathematics, physics and biology. Laureates of the Award can be scientists and mathematicians of all nationalities. (more…)
Seventh International Conference Digital Presentation and Preservation of Cultural and Scientific Heritage – DiPP2017
From September 7th to 9th, 2017 in Burgas, Bulgaria, the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, under the patronage of UNESCO and Burgas District Administration and with the support of the National Scientific Fund, organizes the Seventh International Conference on Digital Presentation and Preservation of Cultural and Scientific Heritage – DiPP2017.
The conference aims at presenting innovative results, research projects and applications in the field of digitisation, documentation, archiving, representation and preservation of global and national tangible and intangible cultural and scientific heritage. The focus is to provide open access to digitised cultural heritage and to set up sustainable policies for its continuous digital preservation and conservation. The priority area is the digital presentation and preservation of cultural and historical objects under conditions of risk.
The prestigious scientific event will be opened on September 7, 2017 at 13:30, in Conference Hall “Georgy Baev”, Cultural Center “Sea casino”, Burgas. (more…)
