Some scientific events organized by BGSMath members can become part of the scientific programme of the BGSMath and thereby benefit from its stamp of scientific quality. These events can be summer schools, mini-courses, workshops, conferences, etc. Events co-organized by the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (CRM) and the Institute of Mathematics of the University of Barcelona (IMUB) can also become an activity endorsed by the BGSMath.

Make a proposal for a BGSMath scientific activity

You can propose that a scientific activity becomes part of the BGSMath programme by sending an e-mail to with the name of the activity and its webpage address. If not available on its website, please provide information about:

  • Organizing committee/organizers
  • Scientific programme
  • Scientific committee

A recommendation to the BGSMath Governing Board about your proposal will be prepared by the BGSMath Advisory Scientific Committee.

Becoming a BGSMath scientific activity does not grant financial support, but the event will be published on the BGSMath webpage, and the BGSMath will advertise the event through its communication channels.

Inform us about a scientific activity

If you want to inform us about a scientific activity that you would like to be advertised by the BGSMath, please let us know.


You may do so by sending us an email at with the name of the activity and its webpage. If not available on the website, please provide detailed information about the following (in a single pdf file).


  • Organizing committee/organizers
  • Scientific programme
  • Scientific committee

Please note that we also manage a calendar of math events where we can list all of the activities that do not become part of the BGSMath scientific programme.


Barcelona Analysis Conference 2019

The BAC19 conference is a continuation of the BAC06 and BAC16 conferences, both held also in Barcelona in September 2006 and September 2016. As in 2006 and 2016, the main objective of the conference is to gather leading researchers in Mathematical Analysis and close areas to present the latest developments and discuss future lines of research. Participation of young researchers, to whom the conference is especially addressed, is encouraged.

25 – 28 June 2019, Aula Magna Historical Building UB.


Coding Theory and Rings

The foundations of classical coding theory are described with specific attention to the MacWilliams relations and the Singleton bound. The transfer of these fundamental ideas to coding theory over more general alphabets is described. The use of rings in coding theory is also highlighted. We end with a discussion of the major open problems in coding theory.
Speaker: Steven T. Dougherty (University of Scranton, Pennsylvania (USA))

BGSMath María de Maeztu Unit of Excellence 2015-2019: Closing Workshop

The BGSMath/MdM excellence program finishes this year. To celebrate this success story we organize in June 6, 2019 a workshop highlighting the most relevant scientific results obtained within the program in the main research areas of BGSMath. We invite all BGSMAth faculty, students and friends to participate in this event. 

Pricing valuation adjustments by correlation expansion

We consider firstly the problem of computing the Credit Value Adjustment (CVA) of a European option in a default intensity setting and in presence of the so-called Wrong Way Risk (WWR). Under appropriate conditions, the method can be extended to include several XVA’s, such as bilateral CVA, DVA (Debt Value Adjustment), FVA (Funding Value Adjustment) and LVA (Liquidity Value Adjustment) due to collateralization.
Speaker: Alessandro Ramponi (University of Roma Tor Vergata (Italy))
Aula S5, Soterrani, Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, UB. 23 May 2019.

VIII Complexitat Day organizes an annual meeting, in which its members gather for a day to display their work, discuss and exchange ideas, or as an opportunity to meet future students. This year, the VIII Jornada de la Complexitat: “Interdisciplinary Research on Complexity” will be held at Institut d’Estudis Catalans (IEC), Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, on May 21, organized by the Complex Systems Group at CRM.
Keynote speaker: Iain Couzin (Max Planck Institute of Ornithology)

An introduction to derivators with applications to the study of t-structures

The theory of stable derivators can be thought of as a minimal enhancement of triangulated categories that allows for a good theory of homotopy co/limits. The idea of a derivator has been introduced independently by several authors in different areas of Pure Mathematics: Heller (in Algebraic Topology), Grothendieck (in Algebraic Geometry), Franke, Keller (in Representation Theory), and possibly others. This theory has recently found several applications to classical problems that had remained open for a long time in the setting of triangulated categories.
Speakers: Manuel Saorín (Universidad Murcia) y Simone Virili (Universidad de Murcia)
CRM, 2 – 6 May 2019

Topics in Complex Dynamics 2019

This conference aims to bring together (experienced and junior) researchers in holomorphic dynamics from several different perspectives.
Barcelona, 25 -29 March 2019.

Fourteenth Barcelona Weekend in Group Theory

This is a meeting specialized in Theory of Groups, organized for the benefit of local specialists in Theory of Groups and in Geometry and Topology, and which contributes to the dissemination of the latest results obtained in our field, with the participation of international experts in the area.
15 – 16 March 2019, UPC.

FACARD 2019 workshop

Frobenius Action in Commutative Algebra: Recent Developments.
Speakers: Linquan Ma (Purdue University) & Holger Brenner (Universität Osnabrück)
IMUB, Barcelona, 16 – 18 January 2019

Barcelona weekend on Operator Algebras

This workshop aims to become the annual meeting of the Operator Algebras community in Barcelona. We would like to bring together leading experts and active researchers in the field to disseminate results as well as to set out perspectives for the future. We also plan to foster interactions between Algebra, Geometry and Topology.

Barcelona-Toulouse Probability Days

The Barcelona-Toulose Probability Days is a two-day scientific activity whose main objective consists in gathering researchers on probability theory, and particularly on stochastic analysis, from different institutions of Barcelona and Toulouse.
