The researcher and group leader currently holds the Jean-Morley Chair at the Centre International de Recontres Mathématiques (CIRM)
Prof. Javier Fernández de Bobadilla, leader of the Singularity Theory and Algebraic Geometry group at BCAM, will be one of the speakers on 14 October at the scientific conferences of the Centre International de Recontres Mathématiques (CIRM) in Luminy (Marseille) at the event celebrating its 40th anniversary. The event will feature four scientific conferences, as well as several exhibitions and two competitions in the graphic and artistic fields.
The scientific lectures will be given by François Charles (Orsay), Anne-Laure Dalibar (Sorbonne), Kerrie Mengersen (Queensland) and Javier Fernández de Bobadilla (BCAM-Ikerbasque).
The programme will continue with the exhibition Art et Singularités, conversations croisées by the artist Silvie Pic, and the exhibition Les audaces by Sophie Germain (Ed. Petit à petit) and the exhibition Regards sur les mathématiques, itinéraires méditerranéens. Among other activities, there will be a graphic competition for the design of a T-shirt commemorating the centre’s 40th anniversary and an artistic competition for the creation of a tessellation, based on Penrose’s tessellations, for the terrace of the CIRM’s restaurant area.
