The Gabonese Workshop in arithmetic and beyond will take place in École Normale Supérieure (ENS) in Libreville, Gabon, from October 24 to November 4, 2024.

This mathematical event is part of the REDAGAAC project.


It will consist of three main activities:

  • A series of research lectures: in particular young researchers participating, especially those who are PhD students, will have the opportunity to present their recent work.
  • Three courses for PhD and Master students: two courses will be given in collaboration with École Normale Supérieure de Paris by pairing an African PhD student or with a recently defended PhD thesis, and a student from ENS Paris; one course will be given by Frédéric van Wijland, Professor at University Paris-Cité.
  • A series of events to promote mathematics, organized in partnership with the Institut Français in Gabon: two half-days for high school students, a half-day for the economic community of Gabon, a screening of the movie “Le théorème de Marguerite”.
