Introduction to IOTA — a feeless cryptocurrency
IOTA Foundation –
In this talk we discuss the basics of the IOTA cryptosystem:
its main principles and approach to the consensus (a.k.a. Coordicide).
Serguei Popov is a research mathematician working in the field of Probability Theory and Stochastic Processes. He graduated from and attained his Ph.D. at the Moscow State University under thesupervision of Professor Mikhail Menshikov.
Around 20 years ago he moved to Brazil to do a postdoc, and then progressed to professorship first in the University of Sao Paulo, and then in the University of Campinas. Serguei began his interest in cryptos in late 2013 when, after stumbling upon an article about Bitcoin, he became an avid reader of bitcointalk.org and discovered an innovative project called Nxt. He achieved notoriety in the Nxt community after publishing a short note with calculations on the block generating process in Nxt (a revised and expanded version of these notes can be found here).
Together with the founder of the Nxt and other people from the Nxt community, he co-founded IOTA in 2015. Currently, Serguei is a BoD member and the director of research at the IOTA Foundation.

Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango
Dates: November 18-19, 2021
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
