The Department of Mathematics at the Universidad del Valle, Cali-Colombia, is delighted to invite you to the International conference: Multidisciplinary Aspects in Mathematics and its applications (ICMAM) 2022, Latin America. The honoree of this year at the conference is the Colombian Mathematician José Raúl Quintero, 2011 National Mathematics Award, Colombian Mathematical Society (Universidad del Valle, Cali-Colombia). The event will be a video conference and will take place via Zoom on the 25-28 October 2022.
The international conference: Multidisciplinary Aspects in Mathematics and its applications (ICMAM) seeks to contribute to the development of mathematical research in Latin America and the Caribbean, stimulate its visibility and promote exchange between mathematicians of the region and from other parts of the world. The ICMAM conferences will be taken every two years via online and you will find the information about the conference on this page.

Description: For many years there has been a push for moving teaching and research content online in a form that goes beyond just linking print versions of documents. The COVID pandemic has only accelerated this trend, forcing all faculty to focus on how to deliver courses online. However, hastily moving material online bears the risk that important accessibility considerations are neglected, threatening fair and inclusive education for all. This is especially true for mathematics and other STEM fields where complex structures such as equations and diagrams play an integral role. In this webinar we will advocate that in addition to moving content online quickly, instructors can use best practices developed for authors to ensure accessibility of math content from the start, thus avoiding additional and duplicate work.
Our presentation shall give an overview of different requirements on presentation and content for students and readers with special needs and how assistive technology support can be provided. We shall particularly concentrate on what this means for math content and how it is made accessible on the web. We argue that the web is the ideal platform for hosting and curating modern content regardless of their original sources like LaTeX, Word, or plain text. And we will demonstrate how accessibility can be practically a free byproduct of conversion from traditionally authored content. In conclusion we discuss ways of authoring, preparing, and teaching accessible web documents containing mathematics, highlighting some of the best practices.

Filmed in Canada, Iran, and the United States, Secrets of the Surface: The Mathematical Vision of Maryam Mirzakhani examines the life and mathematical work of Maryam Mirzakhani, an Iranian immigrant to the United States who became a superstar in her field. In 2014, she was both the first woman and the first Iranian to be honored by mathematics’ highest prize, the Fields Medal. Read more

Also, Zala Films is supporting the May 12th initiative of the International Mathematical Union’s Committee for Women in Mathematics, which each year brings together virtual or local events celebrating women in mathematics. Due to COVID-19 (and by special agreement with Zala Films), individuals and organizations between April 1 and May 19, 2020, may access our film about the life and work of the Iranian mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani, Secrets of the Surface: The Mathematical Vision of Maryam Mirzakhani.

This ten part history of mathematics from Newton to the present day, reveals the personalities behind the calculations: the passions and rivalries of mathematicians struggling to get their ideas heard. Professor Marcus du Sautoy shows how these masters of abstraction find a role in the real world and proves that mathematics is the driving force behind modern science.
The story of two late 17th century mathematicians who worked on the same problem at the same time – the calculus – in which the great hero of British science, Newton, reveals himself to be a little less gentlemanly than his German rival, Leibniz. The calculus is one of the greatest achievements of mankind: an astronaut and an investment analyst pay homage to its enormous power. Listen here
how the mathematics that Leonard Euler invented two hundred years ago has transformed the internet. Euler’s solution to an 18th-century conundrum paved the way for the search engines most of us use every day. Listen here
The mathematics of Joseph Fourier. It’s thanks to his mathematical insight that you can hear Marcus on the radio and that Brian Eno can create sounds that have never been heard before. Listen here
How the mathematics of the French revolutionary, Evariste Galois, has proved invaluable to particle physicists working today.The mathematics that Galois began, over two hundred years ago, now absolutely describes the fundamental particles that make up our universe. Listen here
It was the German scientist and mathematician, Carl Friedrich Gauss, who said mathematics was the Queen of Science. One of his many mathematical breakthroughs, the Gaussian or normal distribution, is the lifeblood of statistics. It underpins modern medicine and is a valuable tool in the fight against prejudice.

The pioneering nineteenth century mathematicians who helped Albert Einstien with his maths: Jonas Bolyai, Nicolas Lobachevski and Bernhard Riemann. Without the mathematics to describe curved space and multiple dimensions, the theory of relativity doesn’t really work. Listen here
Georg Cantor, the mathematician who showed us how to carry on counting when the numbers run out. An insight into the nature of infinity that Roger Penrose believes helps to explain why the human brain will always be cleverer than artificial intelligence. Listen here
Henri Poincare, the man who proved there are certain problems that mathematics will never be able to answer: a mathematical insight that gave rise to chaos theory. Listen here
G.H.Hardy, the mathematician who insisted he had never done anything useful. And yet his work on the “diabolical malice” inherent in prime numbers inspired the millions of codes that now help to keep the internet safe. Listen here
The mathematician that never was, Nicolas Bourbaki. A group of French mathematicians, working between the two world wars and writing under the pseudonym Nicolas Bourbaki transformed their discipline and paved the way for several mathematical breakthroughs in the 21st century. Listen here
