International Mathematics Day at the CRM

Mathematics for a Better World
Friday, March 12, 2021

With its 2021 theme “Mathematics for a Better World”, UNESCO's International Mathematics Day highlights the impact of mathematical sciences to face challenges in areas such as artificial intelligence, prediction models, climate change, screening, equitable sharing as well as improving the quality of life in many unexpected ways thanks to the combined knowledge of the scientists who work there. The CRM has brought together outstanding speaker-organizers who each explore this year's theme in their own way.

This event was held in French and was hosted by Frédéric Gourdeau (Université Laval)
