27-28 August 2015, George Boole Mathematical Sciences Conference, Cork, Ireland

Date: 27-28 August 2015
Location: Cork, Ireland
Deadline: 1 May 2015

As part of the celebrations of Boole's bicentenary, the George Boole Mathematical Sciences (GBMS) Conference will be held in University College Cork (UCC) during the last two weeks of August 2015. George Boole (1815 ' 1864) was the first professor of mathematics at Cork. Boole's efforts to mathematize logical thinking caused a lasting paradigm shift in the 19th century which enlarged the scope and potency of modern mathematics, and provided a wealth of ideas for applications in diverse scientific areas resulting in ground-breaking innovations during the 20th century and beyond.

This event will include 100-150 lectures on selected areas, and embed the folllowing events:
- 2015 Annual Meeting of the Irish Mathematical Society (IMS)
- Domains XII
- When Boole Meets Shannon
