Mathematical Concepts in the Sciences and Humanities

May 16 - 25, 2022
Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences

This conference is dedicated to Jürgen Jost on the occasion of his 65th birthday. His influential work ranges from countless scientific contributions to the creation of a culture of interdisciplinary thinking in which concepts and abstract mathematical structures are identified as the core instrument for integrating knowledge across scientific disciplines. Over the years, Jürgen Jost has shaped a new kind of interdisciplinary science, with mathematics at its heart, and deeply influenced future generations of scientists. The conference brings together experts working with mathematical concepts in a broad spectrum of fields, comprising contributions from friends, former students and colleagues.

We hope that the pandemic situation will greatly improve by the time of the "Jost Fest". However, we have to also consider the possibility of a hybrid or even virtual event. We will apply appropriate adjustments, if this turns out to be the case. For now, however, we stay positive and look forward to an in-person celebration of Jürgen Jost
