SEAMS School - Partial differential equations for image processing: theory and numerics, Thailand, January 3 – 12, 2018

This school was the first active SEAMS school concerning numerical analysis and
scientific computing of partial differential equations in Thailand. It testifies the ability of
the Silpakorn Dept. of Mathematics to participate in South East Asia (ASEAN)
cooperation. The conference introduced a basis of the theoretical and numerical
mathematical analysis to study partial differential equations arising in image
processing. Theoretical lectures were complemented by practical sessions through
scientific Python software.

CIMPA Research School Group Actions on Algebraic Varieties held at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru, Peru, September 4-15, 2017

This CIMPA school has been of great importance to the region, as it allowed fruitful interactions among
many of professors and students from Latin-America working in Algebraic Geometry. Equally important
is the fact that they had the chance to interact with well-known experts from France and Russia, crucial
for networking and future joint projects.
From the opinions collected from the participants and lecturers, it is safe to say that this CIMPA School
