The 18th International Conference on Random Structures and Algorithms "RS&A2017" will be held at the Institute of European Culture in Gniezno, 7-11 August, 2017. The conference, organized biennially since 1983, brings together probabilists, discrete mathematicians and theoretical computer scientists working in probabilistic methods, random structures and randomized algorithms.
The plenary lectures will be delivered by: prof. László Babai (University of Chicago), prof. Jacob Fox (Stanford Unversity), prof. David Conlon (University of Oxford), prof. Benjamin Sudakov (ETH, Zurich), prof. Penny Haxell (University of Waterloo), prof. Tibor Szabó (Freie Universität Berlin), prof. Daniel Kráľ (University of Warwick), prof. Rob Morris (IMPA, Rio de Janeiro).

The conference Banach Spaces and Operator Theory with Applications is conceived as an international meeting place of specialists interested in functional analysis and applications. Its main goal to discuss recent progress and outline perspectives of future developments in the area.
The conference is open for contributions from all branches of functional analysis, priority however will be given to the following research subjects:
- interpolation of operators on Banach spaces
- geometry and local theory of Banach spaces
- multilinear maps and polynomials
- geometric and topological properties of Banach lattices
- factorization of operators on Banach function spaces.

24th of May 2017 will be another lecture in the serie of Rejewski, Różycki, Zygalski lectures in computer science. Lecture will be delivered by Christos H. Papadimitriou from Greece. He has lectured at Harvard University, MIT and Stanford University, University of California at San Diego and the University of California in Berkeley. He is the author of many computer science's textbooks and books.
On the lecture it will be shown examples of algorithmic insights into key problems in economics and evolution. There will be also discuss current work with Wolfgang Maass and Santosh Vempala on models for the creation and interaction of symbolic memories in the brain.
To sum up, 24th of May at 15:30, Aula A of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science. You have to be there! More info on page.
The aim of the MSc Programme in Mathematics is to deepen knowledge of mathematical theories, building on student's experience on a Bachelor's level. With a Master's degree in Mathematics from the Adam Mickiewicz University you will get qualified for many jobs in private and public sector! Learn more
Alan Turing and the Enigma
On the 24th of May 2016, another lecture in the serie of Rejewski, Różycki, Zygalski lectures in computer science was held. This year's lecture was delivered by Sir John Dermot Turing, nephew of Alan Turing, truestee of Bletchley Park and honorary president of the Alan Turing Centenary Advisory Committee. The lecture name was "Alan Turing and the
