This 2020 the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics – BCAM, Naukas and the Chair of Scientific Culture of the University of the Basque Country, had joined again the celebration of the Day of Pi with the third edition of the event BCAM-NAUKAS. However, following the recommendations of the WHO and the Department of Health of the Basque Government on measures to prevent the coronavirus epidemic, COVID19, the Chair of Scientific Culture has decided to suspend the mathematical workshops for students that were scheduled for that day.
The six 15-minute conferences scheduled for the afternoon of Friday 13 will continue. They will be held behind closed doors but users will be able to follow them via streaming on the Kosmos EITB channel. The programme of these conferences can be consulted below:
The aim of these talks will be to bring closer the fascinating nature of mathematics and to make known, among others, the properties and applications of the Pi number in everyday life.
