The event will be held at the Historical Building of the Universitat de Barcelona (Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, 585, Barcelona)


The Berlin Mathematical School (BMS) and the Barcelona Graduate School of Mathematics (BGSMath) share the common goal of striving for excellence in their doctoral and postdoctoral training programs.

In 2016, a memorandum of understanding was signed by both graduate schools in order to boost collaborative work between young researchers from both institutions. The schools declared their intention to cooperate together in initiatives aimed at promoting the mobility of and exchange between students and faculty members by way of events such as the Junior Meeting; joint summer schools; mutual visits by advanced students and postdocs of each institution; and other scientific activities.

The ultimate goal is to create a strong scientific exchange, strengthen research collaboration between the respective math communities, and enhance the multicultural environment of both graduate schools. The first edition of the BMS-BGSMath Junior Meeting was held in Barcelona in October 2017, and the second one was held in Berlin in June 2019. The third Junior Meeting aims to intensify current collaborations and create new links between the two schools.


Scientific sessions will be focused on different areas of Mathematics, trying to cover a wide range of topics and to be of interest for all the participants. No previous background in a specific area will be required to attend and understand the talks.


The conference will consist of numerous talks of 3 different types, all given by people from both communities. Each day there will be a 1 hour keynote session imparted by a plenary speaker followed by 30 minutes sessions given by young but consolidate researchers. Furthermore, additional talks will be presented in parallel sessions by a pair of master/PhD students. Scientific activities will start on Monday, September 5th in the afternoon and will be followed by a welcome reception. On Tuesday, September 6th there will be a conference dinner.
