About the seminar

We would like to invite you to attend the MSIG2023, the 21st SEFI SIG in Mathematics seminar, to be held on 11-14 June 2023. The seminar is held in the city of Tampere (Finland), which is defined by a few unique characteristics: it is surrounded by beautiful lakes and eskers, it has a perfect scale for walking and there’s always something new and innovative going on. The centre of the city is dominated by industrial heritage; the national landscape of Tammerkoski rapids and historical red brick buildings.

Call for papers

We would like to invite you to submit a conference paper of 4-6 pages (incl. references) and to prepare a presentation or a poster thereof. The presentations are 12 min long followed by 8 min discussion. The preferred poster size is A0 portrait. For your paper submission, please use the template below and submit it to our confenrence tool “Lyyti” (link below). The submissions are blind reviewed and published in proceedings publication after the seminar. At least one of the authors is required to participate the seminar. The paper abstracts will be available on the seminar.
