Founded in 1946 as Mathematisch Centrum, the institute has been the birthplace of numerous scientific breakthroughs, and a breeding ground for talented researchers. During the online event, they will look back on their most remarkable scientific achievements.

They will also look into the future with scientific breakout sessions: what do our scientists see when they look ahead to the future of, for example, artificial intelligence or quantum computing? How do we deal with data in the future? And to what level of security can you make computers safe?

One of the programme’s highlights is the farewell speech by former director Jos Baeten. During his speech, he will reflect on his personal experiences with computers and computing research.

More details about the programme will become available soon!
