Taking Mathematics to Heart
Alfio Quarteroni (Politecnico di Milano, Italia)
Abstract: Mathematical models describe the interaction between electrical, mechanical and fluid-dynamical processes occuring in the heart. This classical multi-physics problem featuring multi-scale solutions in space and time require appropriate numerical strategies for accurate and computationally effective simulations of these processes in both physiological and pathological regimes. This presentation includes also a few representative applicatons of clinical interest.
The Pedro Nunes Lectures are a joint iniciative of the Centro International de Matemática and of the Sociedade Portuguesa de Matemática. This Lecture has the support of CMAFcIO (Ciências, ULisboa), CEMAT (IST, ULisboa) and the Academia de Ciências de Lisboa.

In 2017, Portugal, mainly the center of Portugal, where the city of Coimbra is localised, was devastated by terrible wild fires. This tragedy has affected all the Portuguese society that is now extremely engaged in avoiding future similar and dramatic events.
Mathematics can play a significant role in predicting fire behaviour and spread, as well as, in defining suitable strategies to prevent and combat fires. Since the main activities of CIM include sponsoring events, and organising lectures for the Mathematical community, this Workshop on Mathematics & Wild Fires is an event of the utmost importance in Portugal.
This Workshop on Mathematics & Wild Fires is also a satellite event of the VIII International Conference on FOREST FIRE RESEARCH
(Coimbra, Portugal, 10-16 November 2018).
We invite all researchers interested in Mathematics and Wild Fires to participate in this workshop organised by CIM in cooperation with CMUC (Centre for Mathematics of the University of Coimbra),
CMAFcIO (Center for Mathematics, Fundamental Applications and Operations Research) and APMTAC (Portuguese Association of Theoretical, Applied and Computational Mechanics).

This is a satellite conference of the international Congress of Mathematicians, and is intended to promote the interaction of several groups working on nonlinear partial differential equations throughout the world. The main goals of our meeting are to understand recent developments, as well to promote contacts and collaborations between the participants and contribute to create new open questions and problems in the field.
Organization: Denis Bonheure (ULB), Ederson dos Santos and Sérgio Soares (ICMC-USP), Hugo Tavares (CMAFCIO)
Mini-Workshop on eXtraOrdinary Differential Equations (Working on some recent trends)
28-30 March 2018, at Inatel da Foz do Arelho
Organizers: Alessandro Margheri & Carlota Rebelo
This event gathers a small group of researchers in ODEs to discuss some recent trends.The main objective is to develop joint research projects. Students interested in the morning expository sessions are welcome.
The 7th edition of the Winter School on Network Optimization will take place at Hotel Estoril Éden, Estoril, from the 15th to the 19th of January 2018. Its main objective is to provide an opportunity for PhD students to get together and attend high level courses in the field of Network Optimization. Non-PhD students are welcome to attend the school, but the number of participants is limited and priority will be given to PhD students.
