The International Day of Mathematics (IDM) is a worldwide celebration. Each year on March 14 all countries will be invited to participate through activities for both students and the general public in schools, museums, libraries, and other spaces.
March 14 was chosen as the date for the IDM because it was already celebrated in many countries as Pi Day, based on the fact that some countries write it as 3/14 and the mathematical constant π is approximately 3.14. The IDM celebration expands Pi Day to include the whole spectrum of mathematics.
Every year IDM will announce a new theme to flavor the celebration, spark creativity and bring light to connections between mathematics and all sorts of fields, concepts, and ideas.
The theme for 2020 is Mathematics is Everywhere. For more information visit https://everywhere.idm314.org/.
The International Day of Mathematics project is led by the International Mathematical Union with the support of numerous international and regional organizations from all over the world. It was proclaimed by UNESCO on the 40th session of the General Conference, November 26, 2019. The first celebration will be held tomorrow – March 14, 2020.
The IDM website is the main hub for the International Day of Mathematics, online at www.idm314.org.
International Center for Mathematical Sciences – Sofia at the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics organizes educational workshop on Hodge Theory and Local Systems
In the period March 3-5, 2020, the newly established International Center for Mathematical Sciences – Sofia (ICMS-Sofia) and the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences are organizing a series of lectures on Hodge theory and local systems. The goal of this workshop is to introduce a new cutting edge area in modern Mathematics.
The main speaker will be Prof. Carlos Simpson, CNRS, Université Côte d’Azur, Nice.
Other lecturers will be Prof. Alexander Efimov (Steklov Mathematical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences), Prof. Ludmil Katzarkov (University of Miami, USA; Institute of Mathematics and Informatics at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences; National Research University Higher School of Economics, Russian Federation), Prof. Viсtor Przyjalkowski (Steklov Mathematical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences and International Laboratory of Mirror Symmetry and Automorphic Forms, National Research University Higher School of Economic Moscow), Prof. Dmitry Kaledin (Steklov Mathematical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences and National Research University Higher School of Economics, Russian Federation).
The Workshop “Hodge Theory and Local Systems” is the first event at ICMS-Sofia. The purpose of this new center, supported by the Bulgarian Government, is popularizing and developing cutting edge science, and connecting the young Bulgarian scientists with the world’s leading researchers. More workshops will follow.

This year’s winner of “Rose and Irving Saff” Award is Emiliyan Rogachev, student at Sofia University
The Commission to determine the winner of the Rose and Irving Saf Award for 2018 unanimously selected Emilian Rogachev, student at Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics at Sofia University (FMI).
Award in mathematics Rose and Irving Saff was founded by prof. Edward Saff from Vanderbilt University, Tennessee, USA, in memory of his parents. It is awarded each year to a student in mathematics for high achievements and excellence in mathematics. Prof. Saff is a foreign member of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences
Since October 2016, Emilian Rogachev is a teaching assistant at FMI and leads courses in Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra, Design and Analysis of Algorithms; Discrete Mathematics; Calculus 2; Calculus 1.
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.
