We invite all interested in art and creative ways of mathematical sciences comunication for a live workshop in Poznań, Poland, on 4th and 5th July 2021. The programme includes (but is not limited to) Math in Music lecture and a concert of algorithmic music performed by the Poznań Laptop Orchestra. The concert and the Art and Math lecture will be in English and transmitted online. The links to the transmission will be placed at the workshop page. The invited talks will be in Polish and will not be transmitted.

CMSC’21 cancelled

Due to the barriers to international travel and institutional/government restrictions, it has sadly been decided to cancel CMSC in 2021 in Poznan.
