The Faculty of Mathematics, University of Belgrade, is pleased to announce the Symposium **MATHEMATICS AND APPLICATIONS – a 30 years’ overview**.

The event will take place at the Faculty of Mathematics, Studentski trg 16, Belgrade, from May 28th to May 29th, 2010.

This Symposium continues a series of successful national annual conferences and meetings organized by the Faculty of Mathematics. One of the main aims of this event is promotion of science and education in mathematics and informatics and their place in contemporary society through observation of situation nowadays and opening of new possibilities in applications of mathematics in other scientific and technical fields.

The Symposium will give an overview of the history of mathematics in the past 30 years, but it will also present contemporary works of scientists, academics, professors and students. One of the goals of the event is to discuss important questions on teaching of mathematics and informatics in primary and secondary schools.

Our intention is to bring together graduate and undergraduate student researchers in various areas of mathematics through this meeting. Participants will have an opportunity to build and strengthen lasting personal and professional relationships and to gain valuable experience in the environment of the scientific meeting.

The Symposium will be realized through four sections:

- Mathematics and applications – overview
- Mathematics and applications – today
- Mathematics and informatics in education
- Students’ scientific work and research

In every section, talks should last 20 minutes approximately, followed by a short discussion.

The official language of the Symposium is Serbian, but some talks may be given in English as well.

Further information will be provided timely.
