Mathematics of Planet Earth: International competition for exhibition modules

Wed, May 03, 2017

MPE is looking to reward and show-case modules which raise the awareness of the mathematics involved in the planet's ecosystem or in the way civilization is organized.

Four (non-exhaustive) themes are proposed:
I. A planet to discover: oceans, meteorology and climate, mantle processes, natural resources, celestial mechanics…
II. A planet supporting life: ecology, biodiversity, evolution…
III. A planet organized by humans: political, economic, social and financial systems, organization of transport and communications networks, management of resources, energy…
IV. A planet at risk: climate change, sustainable development, epidemics, invasive species, natural disasters, risk analysis…

The best modules will be awarded a prize (total prize money 10,000 US$) and will be featured in the already successful MPE exhibition.

This year there will be a special prize for Africa-related exhibits.
Deadline to enter the competition is June 30, 2017
