Scientific Committee

Once the scientific committee is composed, the information will be updated.

Organizing Society:

Real Sociedad
Matemática Española

Logo de la RSME

Founded in 1911 and reconstituted in 1996, the Real Sociedad Matemática Española (RSME) [Royal Spanish Mathematical Society] is the primary Spanish mathematical association that represents and looks out for the interests of all people of this discipline in the country, both at the national and at the international level. With its different bulletins, commissions, congresses, schools, awards and publications, the RSME not only plays a purely institutional and formal role but also becomes the organic means through which the Spanish mathematical community articulates, communicates, coordinates and expresses itself.

The RSME is determined to play a central role in the young Spanish mathematical community. To promote collaboration and interaction inside this young community, the RSME organizes, since 2011, every other year, the Congreso de Jóvenes Investigadores [Congress of Young Researchers], where young researchers can present their first results and interact with other young researchers interested in maintaining a link to Spain. Furthermore, to recognize the research of the best young researchers in mathematics, the RSME gives each year the Vicen Caselles Awards, in collaboration with the BBVA Foundation since el 2015, and the Rubio de France Prize since 2004. And for looking out for the interest of the young Spanish mathematical community, the RSME has, since 2018, the Comisión de Jóvenes [Young Commission], presided over today by the mathematician Erika Diz Pita.

Hosting and Organizing

Universidad del País Vasco/
Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea

Logo de la UPV/EHU

Founded on February 25th, 1980, after the incorporation to the University of Bilbao of the higher education centers in Gipuzkoa and Araba, Universidad del País Vasco/Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea (UPV/EHU) [University of the Basque Country] is the most prominent university of the Basque Country—and one of the first of the whole Spain—with campuses in the three Basque provinces: in Biscay, distributed across Bilbao, Leioa, Barakaldo and Portugalete; in Gipuzkoa, distributed between Donostia and Eibar; and in Araba, located at Vitoria-Gasteiz.

In its logo (designed by the Basque artist Eduardo Chillida), one can read the motto of the university:

eman ta zabal zazu

Under this motto (which means “give and extend it”), the UPV/EHU “gives” (researches) and “extends” (teaches) knowledge to the Basque people in all the areas of inquiry. Regarding mathematics, this branch can be found in the so-called Leioa campus. There, in the Department of Mathematics, in the Facultad de Ciencia y Tecnología (ZTF-FCT) [College of Science and Technology], the new Basque mathematics and mathematicians are created and formed.

Co-Organizing Institution:

Basque Center
for Applied Mathematics

Logo del BCAM

Founded in 2008 with the support of the Basque Government, the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM) is the most important research center of applied mathematics not only in the Basque Country but also in the whole of Spain. Its recognition as Centro de Excelencia Severo Ochoa [Severo Ochoa Excellence Center] neither once nor twice, but three consecutive times since 2013, justifies this qualification. In addition, the BCAM is not only a leading research center, but it plays a central role in the Basque (and international) industry with its successful projects of mathematical-technological transfer.

Among the successes of the BCAM in the industrial world, we find the collaboration with Basque Healthcare System, Osakidetza on the modelization and prediction of the evolution of COVID-19; with the Athletic Club Bilbao on the prediction of casualties in players; with the coffee company illy on the modelization at the microscopic level of the mixture of coffee and water; and with the insurance company Lagun Aro on the prediction of termination of contracted insurances.


If you are an entity, institution or company, you sponsor the RSME's 7th Congress of Young Researchers. Contact the organizing committee if that's the case to discuss the different possibilities.
