Math Vision Slam
As part of the Math Popularization Day, IMAGINARY will organize an IMAGINARY panel which consists of a mathematics vision slam titled “Mathematics communication for the future” and a special exhibition visit on August 20th from 15:00 – 16:30.
In the vision slam, professionals in the field of mathematics communication will present their visions for future mathematics communication. You will hear different perspectives from renowned mathematicians, a young researcher and a mathematics teacher. Each speaker has 10 minutes to catch the audience’s attention and transmit novel thoughts and ideas. Enter with a curious mind!
The panel is held under the umbrella of IMAGINARY, which will be briefly introduced by Gert-Martin Greuel, former director of the MFO. IMAGINARY ideas will also be present in most of the vision slam talks.
After the vision slam, everybody is invited to visit the NIMS IMAGINARY exhibition shown at the conference.
