In 1989, CERN was a hive of ideas and information stored on multiple incompatible computers. Tim Berners-Lee envisioned a unifying structure for linking information across different computers, and wrote a proposal in March 1989 called “Information Management: A Proposal”. By 1991, this vision of universal connectivity had become the World Wide Web! To celebrate 30 years since Tim Berners-Lee’s proposal and to kick-start a series of celebrations worldwide, CERN will host a 30th anniversary event on the morning of 12 March 2019 in partnership with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the World Wide Web Foundation. This anniversary event will be webcast.

on the subject of Polynomial Optimization, Efficiency through Moments and Algebra at eleven European Research Institutes and Universitites

The Innovative Training Network POEMA is hiring 15 Doctoral Students starting from September 2019. The proposed projects will be investigating the development of new algebraic and geometric methods combined with computer algebra techniques for global non-linear optimization problems. Applications will focus on smarter cities challenges, urban traffic management, water network management, energy flow control, or environmental monitoring.

ERCIM participates in DataMarketServices (DMS), a new H2020 project whose objective is to overcome the barriers of data-centric European SMEs and start-ups by providing free support services around data skills, entrepreneurial opportunities, legal issues and standardization. The expected project deliverables are a 100-data-based companies portfolio, twelve free support services, webinars and training in topics such as GDPR, IPR, etc.
