Pedro Nunes Lectures is an initiative of Centro Internacional de Matemática (CIM) in cooperation with Sociedade Portuguesa de Matemática (SPM), with the support of the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, to promote visits of notable mathematicians to Portugal. Each visitor is invited to give two or three lectures in Portuguese Universities on the recent developments in mathematics, their applications and cultural impact.
Pedro Nunes Lectures are aimed to a vast audience, with wide mathematical interests, especially PhD students and youth researchers.

About the Conference
|The International Conference "Mathematics and Engineering in Marine and Earth Problems" (MEME'2014) will take place at the University of Aveiro, Portugal, on July 22-25, 2014.|
Multidisciplinary collaboration is becoming, more than ever, a fundamental tool to push the progress of scientific research and development. The main goal of MEME'2014 is to provide a multidisciplinary forum where mathematicians, engineers, and other scientists can engage and discuss the development of innovative scientific and technological tools for the study and exploration of the Earth and the Ocean.
Besides promoting the discussion of recent advances in hot topics of research, the conference is expected to foster a tighter cooperation between theoretical and experimental practitioners leading to the emergence of new research agendas and providing guidelines for future work.
The conference program will include the usual Plenary Talks (45 min), Talks at Invited Sessions (25 min), Contributed Talks (20 min) and a Poster Session, but will also include Discussion Sessions and a Round-table Session. The speakers of Invited Sessions will be appointed by the organizers of Invited Sessions, who have developed a renowned work in fields of Mathematics and/or Engineering related with Theory or Applications in Marine and Earth Sciences.
The presentations will be organized around the following theoretical topics:
- PDEs, Boundary Value Problems, Scattering, and Inverse Problems
- Big Data, Simulation, and Data Mining
- ODEs, Dynamical Systems, Control, and Optimization
- Stochastic and Statistics Analysis
with applications to the following areas (but not limited to):
- Climate, hurricanes, and extreme weather events
- Currents, waves, and ocean energy
- Geological processes and geo-hazards
- Geological storage of CO2, natural gas and hazardous materials
- Hydrogeology and fluid dynamics
- Evolutionary ecology
- Population dynamics and models of extinction
- Exploitation of sea-floor resources and unconventional fossil fuels
- Navigation of underwater robotic vehicles
- Underwater communications
- Earth-Ocean sensor networks
Both theoretical and applied research, related with Marine and Earth problems, are relevant to the conference, since the event aims to promote the interaction between the two worlds.
To promote the interaction between participants there will be two initiatives:

A Multidisciplinary Collaboration Example
|Guillaume Jouvet (Plenary Speaker) made a 5-minute-long film for the competition "Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013", which won the third prize among 29 other participants. The film shows how mathematicians and glaciologists work together to produce realistic estimates of the future evolution of glaciers. The film is a part a museum exhibit, which is hosted on the open source project platform IMAGINARY. For further details please see Guillaume's homepage.|
