Summer school Wisla 18

Wisła, Poland
August 20 – August 30, 2018save-the-date

The topic of the forthcoming school:
Nonlinear PDEs, their geometry,  and applications

The goal of the forthcoming school is to present recent results in the theory of nonlinear PDEs, their geometry, and applications. The coursers will stress a role of geometrical methods and especially methods of contact geometry to study nonlinear PDEs and methods of their integrability. Various methods of finding and using symmetries and conservation laws will be presented. Especially the following topics will be emphasized: methods of integrability and finding smooth and singular solutions (shock waves). All these methods will be illustrated by applications to fluid mechanics, field and quantum theory, etc.

The speakers will be:

• Alexei Kushner (Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia) Geometry of Monge-Ampere equations with Maple
• Valentin Lychagin (University of Tromsø, Norway) Contact Geometry and measurements
• Ian Roulstone (University of Surrey, UK) and Martin Wolf (University of Surrey, UK) Higher Geometry and Non-linear PDEs
• Volodya Rubtsov (University of Angers, France) Geometric structures associated  with Monge-Ampere operators
• Sergey Tychkov  Symbolic computations in differential geometry with Maple

Materials of the school will be published by Springer Nature.
The school will provide young researchers an opportunity to interact with their colleagues and well-known researchers in the field 
- each participant could make a talk about recent research or present a poster. 
- each participant will get an independent and constructive feedback on her/his current research and future research directions. 
- a decision about including participantwork to the book will be made based on experts feedback. 
- each participant will also be given an opportunity to improve her/his work during the school.

MP Sailing Camp


Math & Physics & Sailing Camp

Good news everyone!

This Summer BIM invite you to join our Math & Physics & Sailing (MPS) Camp – where you will learn about sailing, math and physics.

Since people have been interested in getting from one place to another, they have been building boats. The scientific principles that governed early sailing still apply today. Math is an important part of sailing and is used to design stable boats and aerodynamic sails, compensate for currents, and circumnavigate the globe.


We will prove you that Math is awesome!

You will learn water safety, navigation, sail design, tacking, jibing and basic rescue procedures.Campers will sail with two to four per boat under the close supervision of the instructors. Beginners are taught the basics of sailing from rigging and launching to steering and boat-handling to finally sailing solo.

Do you want to know how math shows up in sailing?
The registration is open! It doesn’t matter how old are you. Go sailing with us!

We look forward to having you join us this summer for this amazing event.
Send an e-mail to office@baltinmat.com to register now!

Futurum STREAM Camp


Turning STEM into STREAM will energise the sciences…

What is STREAM?
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics—STEM, and therefore, STEM education are vital to our future. Besides, STEM is everywhere; it shapes our everyday experiences.  STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. It’s simple. Kids learn while they have fun!
There is a movement afoot to turn that acronym into STREAM by adding Arts and Research.


At Futurum STREAM Camp, youth explore the fields of Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Art and Math (STREAM) through hands-on activities. Futurum STREAM Camps is a part of the Education and research programme “FUTURUM 2020″ under the patronage of Professor Jerzy Buzek MEP.

About Camp
Do you enjoy math, physics and programming?
Join the international children math and physics community BIM.  We invite you to have two unforgettable weeks in a STEM camp for K1-K12 students and first & second university students which takes place in a small town close to the nature.
Some sessions are make for mathematically gifted students from around the globe. An initiative in response to parents and teachers of bright students who have not yet shone at the Olympiad level, as well as of those who would like to expand what they have learned before.
These talented students wish to hone their problem solving skills in particular and further their mathematics education in general. Many of our participants seek to improve their performance on contests such as IMO, IOI, IPHO, NMC, MEMO and The Baltic Way.
We also invite students of 1-4 grades (ages 6-11) to our school together with parents.


The most interesting problems and math puzzles as well as twisted origami are waiting ahead. Every one of you can try being a scientist, an engineer or even a film director.

Time and space in the camp will be filled with the atmosphere of creativity. Solving problems will take place both in classrooms and on the mountains paths thus allowing diving deeply into the amazing world of math. 2 weeks will be dedicated to advanced math and physics, research practical works, projects. You will meet words like programming, IT, data bases, financial analytics, economics, accounting, law, computational linguistics, experimental and theoretic physics, bioengineering, mathematical model, design etc.

A wide spectrum of laboratory works with the possibility to choose preferable field will be available for those who love physics. Having a chance to get your hands on something without being obliged to have a certain result is also a result.  Interactive lectures with the demonstration of main principles of universe will give an opportunity to find new things about the world and also to share this knowledge.

We will show where and how math appears in real life. Are you with us?


Intensive studying process at school requires intensive recreation and this is why we offer kids to enjoy the amazing world of math. Students will get enough energy for the new academic year as well as learning a lot of new thing. The program of Futurum STREAM includes school curriculum and different classes to improve logics with the stress on research problems.

Recreation is the main thing for a kid to get during holidays. However, what is a perfect recreation for a school kid? We wisely choose active recreation and comprehensive development.

We offer kids travelling, math, physics, sport and art instead of computer.


This year there are several host towns:
(Poland) The small town Wisła is in the area of Beskyd Mountains close to the border with Slovakia and Czech Republic
(Poland) Jastrzębia góra is a small town on the south coast of the Baltic sea
(Sweden) Karlskrona is known as Sweden’s only baroque city
(Serbia) Several small towns near Belgrade and Novi Sad
(Italy) Several small towns near Naples

You can join any moment from September till August. If anybody is willing to enjoy the amazing world of math for a long period of time, he or she is more than welcome to join number of sessions.

Satellite Thematic Session: 6th European Congress of Mathematics


Besides pure mathematics, most challenging and difficult problems in the modern mathematical and theoretical physics belong to the realm of nonlinear PDEs and related algebraic and geometrical structures. New methods of geometrical theory of PDEs, explicitly or implicitly based on Secondary Calculus and the language of differential calculus over commutative algebras, have already manifested their high efficiency in approaching above problematics.

The scope of this Thematic Session is, from one side, to discuss recent developments in the modern geometry of nonlinear partial differential equations with a special emphasis on new techniques based on Secondary Calculus, as well as the recent progress in the theory of solution singularities of nonlinear PDEs and in formal integrability theory, and, from another side, the related Poisson-like structures emerging in this context such as algebroids, multiple Lie algebra structures, etc. A special attention will be given to actual and perspective of applications to geometry, physics and mechanics.

This STS will take place on one afternoon during the 6th European Congress of Mathematics. The exact day and time as well as the venue will be set later by the Congress organizers. Participants are supposed to register to the Congress.
