PopMath Outreach Events Calendar launched

Today the European Mathematical Society launches PopMath, a calendar of popular maths events taking place across Europe and beyond, including online. It should be a great resource for people wanting to find or share details of mathematical outreach activities.

Created by the Raising Public Awareness (RPA) Committee of the European Mathematical Society, the website displays the events on a world map, and includes maths outreach events for a general audience, as well as academic and professional events about outreach. Events can be commercial or non-profit, online or in-person, and include longer exhibits and festivals alongside one-off talks.

Online events already listed include a teacher conference in the Netherlands, a talk on the number 1 in Germany (genuinely, the first in a series), an event on AI and Maths in Italy, and a presentation by Caroline Series on Indra’s Pearls in Singapore. There are also longer events including a week-long online workshop for 11-16 year-olds (cough cough), a 12-hour Maths Marathon in Spain and Maths Week in Ireland.

Anyone organising or wanting to promote an event can submit it on the PopMath website. If you just want to see events – you can search by ‘near me’ or by date, and the organisers hope to add a language filter shortly – the list is simply at
