## EULER–BERNOULLI: yesterday – today – tomorrow

For more than a hundred years, the Euler Committee has published the works and correspondence of the mathematician Leonhard Euler (1707–1783). The last printed volume was celebrated with a ceremony in October.

In November 1922, it was announced that Einstein would receive the Nobel Prize for the year 1921. Namely "for his services in theoretical physics, and in particular for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect". The symposium first recalls the historical background and then presents modern developments in photonics.

Image: SPS## Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen Symposium

This public symposium is dedicated to the physicist Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen (1845 - 1923) and his vibrant legacy today. Röntgen studied mechanical engineering at the ETH Zürich and obtained his PhD in physics in 1869 from the University of Zürich. In 2020 his 175th birthday and the 125th anniversary of his discovery of X-rays should have been celebrated, but the event had to be shifted to 2021 due to the pandemic.

Wie sieht unser Leben in 50 Jahren aus? Wollen wir Ferien auf dem Mond machen? Wie müsste der Mars eingerichtet sein, damit wir darauf leben könnten? Zusammen zeichnen wir ein Bild der Zukunft!

Image: Science et Cité## Open Data and Data Management - Issues and Challenges

The SCNAT is organizing this one day event in Bern, with the aim to give the research community the chance to raise their concern and also the SNF and the European Commission to present their view and to inform about recent trends. The workshop should provide recommendations on how to implement the open data requirements.

## NASA and Swiss Space Science – with Thomas Zurbuchen

Thomas Zurbuchen from Heiligenschwendi is the new Head of NASA Science Missions since 2016. He thus bridges the dynamic space nation Switzerland and the largest global player in space, NASA. Learn about the personal story and about the many successes and challenges of Swiss and US Space Science. This event, hosted by the International Space Science Institute and the Swiss Academy of Sciences, aims to inspire upcoming and established space scientists, astronomers, and earth observers.

Vor hundert Jahren, im November 1915, publizierte Albert Einstein seine bahnbrechenden Arbeiten zur Allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie. Aus diesem Anlass findet vom 12.-14. November 2015 an der ETH Zürich ein Symposium statt, das die Bedeutung dieser Arbeiten bis hin zur heutigen Forschung auf vielfältige Weise beleuchtet.

## Rigi-Workshop 2015

The Rigi Workshop 2015 brought together mathematics, computer science and biology. The aim of this workshop was to present interesting, cutting-edge topics from the life sciences which require mathematical modeling to PhD students working at Swiss universities. Mathematical modeling is becoming more and more instrumental in life sciences; the data complexity and the high number of interacting components, from molecules to animals, render intuitive reasoning very difficult. The idea consists in formulating mathematically how certain biological units affect each other and how these interactions affect the whole system. Such quantitative modeling approaches produce mathematical models which are then implemented using computer software.

## Rigi-Workshop 2011

Biological machines are touted to offer novel technological strategies provided that their mechanisms can be understood and replicated outside the cellular context (see for instance G.M. Whitesides, Sci. Am., 2001). The principles of how molecular motors, biological nanopores, structural elements etc. operate not only provide profound insights into our understanding of cellular function, but can also have a practical impact on molecular device development for applications in health, security and the environment.
