The aim of Junior Math Days is to introduce master students to the research at SISSA, Trieste, one of the institutes of excellence in Italy. This year, after the online edition of 2020, we are back in person. In three days, from the 20th to the 22nd of December 2021, the main research lines of the mathematics area will be presented. It is divided into: Geometry and Mathematical Physics e Mathematical Analysis, Modelling and Applications. Apart from the morning lectures held by professors, there will be informal meetings in the afternoons with the PhD students of the school. With these activities, you will have the opportunity to get a glimpse of SISSA's research topics.

Rules for accessing SISSA (Read Carefully)
