ICTA – CRM closed activity


The workshop has been created with the idea of bringing together researchers of ICTA-UAB and the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (CRM) – two Maria de Maeztu Units of Excellence at the UAB campus. Following two sessions of short presentations by ICTA and CRM researchers to introduce their work and research interests, then there will be the opportunity to participate in a poster session and engage in discussion groups. 

The workshops, intended for both junior and senior researchers, is aimed at fostering interdisciplinary research across the two centres.
