[Registration Closed] The 9th KUIP Symposium “The World Through Mathematics”

The 9th KUIP Symposium

The Kyoto University-Inamori Foundation Joint Kyoto Prize Symposium (KUIP) is held in the hope that the Kyoto Prize will be widely known and interest in the subject fields and laureates will grow. Since 2014, the symposium has been held annually with a theme of social interest, providing the public with an opportunity to experience the knowledge of cutting-edge academic research.

This year’s theme, the ninth in the series, is “The World Through Mathematics.” Five lecturers will take the stage to present lectures and a panel discussion on the fascination of mathematics, which may seem difficult at first glance, and the connection between mathematics and our daily lives.

Admission is free, registration is required by 5:00 pm on February 5, 2023, and the maximum number of participants at the venue is 240 on a first-come, first-served basis. A recorded video of the lectures will be available on the KUIP website at a later date. We look forward to seeing you there!

*Lectures and discussion will be provided in Japanese only.

*Registration is now closed as we have reached capacity. (Updated on January 17)
