Newsletter 2020/03





Dear Friends of KoMSO,

It is our pleasure to present the third KoMSO newsletter of the year.

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupts public life. Naturally, this also affects the MSO community. Therefore, this edition of our newsletter comes in a slightly reduced version and primarily contains calls for proposals and contributions.

Please feel free to share your feedback with us or to contribute ideas for upcoming editions of this newsletter. Previous editions of this newsletter can be found at <>.

Best wishes from the KoMSO Coordination Office! Stay healthy!



Upcoming conferences & events


Cancelations due to the COVID-19 pandemic

We refrain from reporting the plethora of conferences and workshops canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, we will inform about new dates or alternative plans (holding video conferences, etc.) once confirmed.



The "10th Vienna International Conference on Mathematical Modelling" will take place from February 17 to 19, 2021 at Vienna University of Technology in Vienna, Austria. Proposals for minisymposia and submissions recently opened and are possible until late summer. More information can be found at <>.
