Mathematics plays a key role in these and many other processes affecting Planet Earth, both as a fundamental discipline and as an essential component of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research.
FOCUS ON RESEARCH Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013 will focus mathematical research in these fields, provide a platform to showcase the essential relevance of mathematics to planetary problems, coalesce activities currently dispersed among institutions, and create a context for mathematical and interdisciplinary developments that will be necessary in order to address a myriad of issues and meet global challenges in the future.
VENUE Activities will take place around the planet. Several thematic activities will be organized jointly by more than one institute.
TYPE OF ACTIVITIES TO TAKE PLACE AT MATHEMATICS OF PLANET EARTH Thematic Programs, workshops, collaborative research groups, summer schools, activities for the public and the media, activities in K-12 Education, special Issues of Scientific Journals.
With the support of theInternational Mathematical Union (IMU), theInternational Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI) and theInternational Council of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM).
