The Origin of Maxwell's Equations
12 May 2021 • University of Worcester or online, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Organised by IOP West Midlands Branch, Hereford & Worcester Centre
Abstract:
Maxwell's discovery of the laws of electromagnetism represents one of the key events in the history of physics, resulting in a paradigm shift from Newtonian physics to a Universe dominated by fields. Maxwell's discovery provides the link between the physics of Newton and Einstein. The revolutionary nature of Maxwell's insights will be highlighted. This event may also be delivered as an online webinar. If necessary due to Coronavirus or venue restrictions it will be an online webinar only.

5th international conference CMSC — Creative Mathematical Sciences Communication
02 Jul 2021 - 06 Jul 2021 • Poznan, Poland
Abstract:
We are pleased to announce that the 5th International Conference on Creative Mathematical Sciences Communication (CMSC) will be held at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland, 2−6 July, 2021. The CMSC conference series was initiated in 2013. The aim is to explore new ways of communicating the rich algorithmics and mathematics underlying computer science. The conference aims also to engage research mathematical scientists in outreach and communication. Bringing together researchers, educators and communicators committed to bringing exploration and discovery into classrooms and among the educated public, the conference hopes to explore new ways of thinking initiated by Computer Science Unplugged and other similar efforts.
