VMF2020 was the first such elaborate virtual mathematics conference that happened in India. The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on almost every human being on this planet, and we mathematicians are no exception. But life must go on, and whatever may be the situation, we mathematicians must do mathematics! So we brought to you an elaborate conference which took place entirely online, and every participant could attend it from the safety and comfort of their own homes.

We organized 3 symposiums, one on each of the following broad areas:

  • Algebra and Number Theory

  • Analysis and PDE

  • Topology, Geometry and Dynamics

We had an excellent line-up of talks by some of the finest researchers in India.

Apart from the 3 symposiums, the conference featured some plenary talks and panel discussion sessions on various aspects of mathematics.

The whole conference was live-streamed on YouTube, so that anybody can attend.

There was no registration fee.
