4th Advanced in silico drug design workshop in Olomouc

Dear colleagues, please note the following invitation.

Dear colleagues,

we would like to invite you to the 4th Drug Design workshop which
will be held on 21-25 January 2019 in Olomouc (Czech Republic). It is
focused on practical applications of different chemoinformatic tools and
approaches for drug development. This might be interesting for bachelor,
master and PhD students to broaden their experience and sharpen skills.
Basic Python skills would be desirable for QSAR and deep learning
tutorials. However, a brief introduction to Python will be given at the
workshop.

During the workshop, students will learn pharmacophore modeling with
LigandScout, molecular docking with AutoDock Vina, QSAR modeling with
RDKit and OpenBabel, scikit-learn and SPCI, molecular dynamics with GROMACS and deep learning. A
competition will be organized at the last day of the workshop where
participants will be able to apply acquired knowledge to solve real
chemoinformatic tasks and win prizes.

Please feel free to share this information to those who may be
interested in participating in such event. Thank you.

With kind regards,
Thomas Evangelidis

Modelářská vánoční besídka

Srdečně Vás zveme na tradiční Vánoční besídku oboru matematického modelování, která se koná v pondělí 10.12.2018 v posluchárně K1 (Sokolovská 83) od 18:00 hodin.

Můžete si zde pochutnat na guláši, chlebíčkách nebo svařáku za doprovodu vánočních koled. Vzhledem k tomu, že se vánoční besídka pořádá v posluchárně K1, rádi bychom pozvali nejen studenty, absolventy a pedagogy spojené s tímto oborem, ale i jejich partnery/ky, přátele a všechny přízvnice matematického modelovaní.

Nezapomeňte si Vaše hudební nástroje!

 

Master and bachelor thesis — list of topics

Dear students,

let me briefly summarise the topics of master and bachelor theses that were offered at the meeting.

Another list of topics has been compiled by Martin Čížek. If you want to see more topics, please check also the list of topics in Study Information System.

Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme

The College of Science and Engineering (CSE)* now invites applications for admission to PhD programmes at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) through the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme in 2019/20, called the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme. This Scheme is run by the RGC (Hong Kong Research Grants Council). This Scheme is indeed extremely attractive, since any PhD student accepted under this program will receive a monthly salary of 25,000 Hong Kong Dollars (hence around 3,200 USD/month at the current exchange rate), during three years at CityU (City University of Hong Kong).

Note that the cost of living in Hong kong is quite reasonable, and that housing is provided by the university: it’s free the first year (covered, like the Tuition Fees, by an additional Entrance Scholarship).

Of course, only students with extremely good academic records should apply. Another requirement is the English Proficiency: Unless his/her medium of instruction was English, any candidate should have passed either the TOEFL Test with a minimum score of 79 (this minimum TOEFL score is equivalent to 550 (paper-based) or 213 (computer-based)), or the IELTS
Test with a minimum score of 6.5 (as I understand, it’s possible to pass the TOEFL or IELTS Tests online).

You will find all the instructions and details in the following websites:
– The RGC website is: http://www.rgc.edu.hk/hkphd, http://www.rgc.edu.hk/hkphd
– The CityU website is: http://www.cityu.edu.hk/sgs/oas

Please note that the absolute deadline for applying are 1st December 2018 for RGC and 1st December 2018 for CityU.

Topics of bachelor/master theses — meeting

Those who are interested in a discussion on the choice of bachelor/master thesis topic are kindly invited to a meeting that will take place in the lecture room K9 on 5th November 2018 at 17:20. The meeting is aimed at students who are looking for a thesis topic as well as researchers who want to offer in person their thesis topic to a wider audience.

Topical problems of fluid mechanics 2019

The conference will be held in the Institute of Thermomechanics, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, v.v.i. in Prague, February 20 – 22, 2019.

Scope of the conference covers the whole field of fluid mechanics.
Papers on experimental, numerical and theoretical investigations of problems in fluid mechanics are welcome.
Reports on new mathematical and/or experimental aproaches to solution of fluid flow problems are also of great interest.

For further details please visit our web. Please pay attention to “Conference Fee” and “Instructions for Authors” as there are some changes!

Looking forward to seeing you in Prague.

Informal meeting on the occasion of the beginning of the semester

Informal meeting on the occasion of the beginning of the semester will take place in restaurant Globus (Křižíkova 512/68, Praha 8-Karlín) on Monday 15th October at 19:00. All teachers, former students, perspective students and especially 1st year students of mathematical modelling are cordially invited!

If you want to participate, please confirm your participation by sending an email to Karel Tůma (ktuma@karlin.mff.cuni.cz).

Winter semester 2018/2019 — notes

Notes from the introductory meeting:

  • Questions and remarks concerning the study of mathematical modelling should be sent to:

    If you are not sure who do you want to talk to, please contact Vít Průša (prusv@karlin.mff.cuni.cz).

  • Check mathematical modelling webpages on regular basis. Subscribe to our maling list.
  • The most important decision you are going to make in the course of your study is the choice of the topic of your bachelor/master thesis. Deadline for the choice of bachelor thesis topic is 2nd November 2018. The choice of master thesis topic must be made no later than on 15th February 2018, see the academic calendar. However, we strongly recommend to chose your master thesis topic at your earliest convenince. In general, the sooner your choose the topic, the sooner you can start working. Note that you are requested to present the topic/results already in the summer semester in the seminar Selected problems in mathematical modelling. If necessary, we will organise a special meeting where we will informally talk about the possible topics, and eventually we will together find a topic that fits your needs. If you are interested in such a meeting, please let us know. (Send email to prusv@karlin.mff.cuni.cz, Vít Průša.)
  • Consider membership in SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) Student Chapter Prague. SIAM Student Chapter has a meeting today, for details please see their webpage.
  • Be active. Send your bachelor-master thesis to Soutěže studentů vysokých škol ve vědecké činnosti v matematice (SVOČ, Competition of university students in mathematics). Try to collaborate with people in the mathematical modelling group.
  • Think of studying abroad (ERASMUS, summer schools and so forth). Faculty coordinator of the ERASMUS programme is Ondřej Pangrác (Ondrej.Pangrac@mff.cuni.cz). All the questions concerning the programme administration — which form should you fill and when you are supposed to do it — should be sent to him, we are really not very good in answering such questions. We can, however, help you with question of scientific nature, such as which university is the best choice regarding your interests.
  • Most of the optional lectures start in the second week of the semester, please be in contact with the lecturers, they will keep you informed. Some invitations to optional lectures are displayed on our webpages, see below.
  • Several scientific seminars are running at the School of Mathematics and across the university. If you are interested, please attend them. Programme of some seminars is shown in the calendar on our webpages.
  • As always, we are going to organise an informal meeting with students and people related to the mathematical modelling group. (Meaning that we will go together to a pub.) Check mathematical modelling webpages on regular basis, we will post the date, time and place as soon as possible. (So far, the preliminary date of the event is 15th October.)
  • Mathematical modelling group members are co-organising, under the auspices of the European Mathematical Society, a traditional summer school Mathematical aspects of fluid flows. If you want to participate in that school, please let us know.

We wish you a successful and inspiring study!
