Dear reader, welcome to the website of the FMF symposium. This is a yearly event which is organised by dedicated members of the FMF, the study association for (applied) mathematics, (applied) physics, and astronomy at the University of Groningen.

This year, the theme of the symposium will be "Epic Proportions". Of course, this theme can be quite broadly interpreted.

It is natural to think about the physical quantities of large and small. In the world around us, extremely small particles make up our infinite universe. Or how an object like a black hole with an extremely large mass can be of a relatively small size.

The influence certain discoveries have over the future can also be of epic proportions. When Newton described gravity, he probably did not anticipate it still being widely used and taught hundreds of years later! Who knows what current research will last for centuries to come. Research itself can also be of epic proportions. Think about CERN, or, as one of our speakers will tell you about, the KM3NeT telescope.

No Symposium is possible without the sponsors, and two sponsors in particular will be physically present at our event. ASML will be present to answer any and all queries that you may have about working with them. We will also be welcoming YER at the Symposium who will be providing you with free CV-checks!

The symposium will take place on the 17th of February 2023 at Van Der Valk Hotel Groningen - Hoogkerk, Borchsingel 53, 9766PP Eelderwolde, The Netherlands. More information about the speakers and about the programme can be found on this website. You can also register on this website. We hope to see many of you at the Symposium!

The best student symposium I've ever witnessed

prof. Philip Moriarty

It was a really great event to be a part of, and I have to say that it was also one of the best-organised events that I've been involved in for a long time
