Round Table on International Comparison of Mathematical Studies,
University Degrees and Professional Perspectives
International cooperation and collaboration is increasing.
However, the rules and regulations in many countries seem to
impede the international mobility of students, teachers,
and professionals. A discussion of this and related topics -
with respect to mathematics - will be the subject of a
roundtable organized by Ina Kersten (Bielefeld, Germany):
of Mathematical Studies, University Degrees
and Professional Perspectives
ROUND TABLE: August 25, 1998, 7:30 pm, H 104.
Among the panelists are
- Doina Cioranescu (Laboratoire d'Analyse Numérique,
Univ. Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France),
- Karl-Heinz Hoffmann (President of the German Mathematical
Society, formerly the President of the "Wissenschaftsrat" of Germany),
- Jürgen Netzel (Labour Exchange, Berlin, Germany),
- Andrzej Pelczar (President of the General Council for Higher
Education in Poland, Vice-President of the European Mathematical
- Mario Primicerio (Mayor of Florence, Italy).
There will be short reports on higher education policies and
professional perspectives in different countries. The discussion
also includes mobility of students and teaching staff, and the
development of cooperation networks. There are many professional
fields where mathematicians are needed as the discussion will show.
