The Assises des Mathématiques will take place in Paris from November 14 to 16, 2022. In preparation of this event:

Challenge calls are open until October 1st 2022:

  • One of the calls for projects is the dissemination challenge. The selected project can take any form, for example and not exclusively book, exhibition, film, web application, etc.
  • Another call for projects is the Maths2030 challenge, which aims to support projects that highlight the relevance of mathematics in one of the ten challenges of the France 2030 plan. These challenges are very broad, covering the following themes Decarbonized and Resilient France; Transportation of the Future; Healthy, Sustainable and Traceable Food; Health; Cultural Domain; Space and the Deep Sea. There is no doubt that our community can make an important contribution!

7 workgroups work on the following general themes:

  •     Development of knowledge and scientific intellectual influence. The aim is to examine the influence of mathematics produced in France, in Europe and in the world and its impact on the development of the sciences with which it interacts.
  •     Economic development, competitiveness and innovation. How can mathematics maximize economic development, territorial competitiveness, economic sovereignty and innovation?
  •     Societal role of mathematics. What is the right place of mathematics in a society ready to take up the challenges of the 21st century?
  •     Evolution and attractiveness of careers in mathematics. The aim is to understand the different careers in mathematics (both in the public and private sectors) and their modalities, to study the porosity between these careers and the competition between them.
  •     Education in mathematics, before and after the baccalaureate and in continuing education. We question here in particular the place of mathematics in higher education and the place of higher education in continuing education in (or even through) mathematics.
  •     Organization and financing of research. What are the originality and the limits of the functioning of the networked community? Is it necessary and if so, how can the support given to mathematicians and the modes of financing evolve?
  •     Issues and proposals for the mathematics of tomorrow. How will the new issues and challenges facing mathematics change the faces and practices of the discipline?
