Participant and medalist in a great variety of national and international mathematical competitions, tournaments and Olympiads. Since 2015 he has won gold medals from the National Mathematics Olympiad for Students for five consecutive years. Silver medalist from the Balkan Mathematics Olympiad in 2015, a bronze medalist from the Zhautykov International Mathematical Olympiad and Romanian Masters of Mathematics.
This year the Commission for determining the winner of the Prize was composed of Academician Vesselin Drensky – Director of the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Prof. Peter Boyvalenkov – Deputy Director of IMI, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Parvan Parvanov – Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics at Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” and Assoc. Prof. Maya Stoyanova – Deputy Dean of FMI.
The conference is organized by the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences in collaboration with the Union of the Bulgarian Mathematicians and the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics of Sofia University.
One of the main goals of the conference Mathematics Days in Sofia (MDS) is to bring together Bulgarian mathematicians and computer scientists working all over the world. In this way, the event will enrich the relations between the mathematicians working in Bulgaria and the Bulgarian mathematical diaspora.
The first edition of MDS was held in 2014 at the initiative of a number of prominent Bulgarian mathematicians working in Bulgaria and abroad and attended by more than 300 participants from all over the world. The second conference was organized in 2017 thus making MDS a traditional meeting of Bulgarian mathematicians working in Bulgaria and abroad with their colleagues from prestigious scientific centers all over the world.
The purpose of this event is to present the latest scientific achievements in the field of Mathematics and Informatics.

DiPP 2019: Ninth International Conference Digital Presentation and Preservation of Cultural and Scientific Heritage
From September 26th to 28th, 2019 in Burgas, Bulgaria, the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, under the patronage of UNESCO and Burgas Municipality and with the support of the National Science Fund, organizes the Ninth International Conference on Digital Presentation and Preservation of Cultural and Scientific Heritage—DiPP2019.
Co-organisers of the event are: the Regional Academic Center – Burgas, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences; the Regional Historical Museum – Burgas; the Burgas Free University; Index Ltd.
The prestigious scientific event will be opened on September 26, 2019 at 11:30, in Expo Center “Flora”, Burgas, Bulgaria.
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 forum will demonstrate innovative technologies and prototypes, including digital repositories, digital archives, virtual museums and digital libraries, which result from established practices and achievements in the field. Representatives of public and specialised libraries, museums, galleries, archives, centres, both national and foreign research institutions and universities are invited to participate and exchange experiences, ideas, knowledge and best practices in the field.
