On the 120th anniversary of John von Neumann’s birth, a number of conferences will be organised. On 8-9 November, a conference will be held in New York, where Ferenc Miszlivetz, Director of the iASK, will also give a lecture.
John von Neumann is probably the most impactful Hungarian-born scientist in the United States. He was one of the founding professors of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton along with Albert Einstein and Oswald Veblen. In 1999, he was named “Person of the Century” by the Financial Times.
Description of the conference page:
Von Neumann was born 120 years ago in 1903, and we have chosen to celebrate this anniversary with several events honoring his legacy and contributions to science and innovation in the United States and around the world.
To celebrate the 120th anniversary of Neumann’s birth, several organizations in Hungary are preparing a series of commemorative events to make Neumann’s legacy as accessible as possible. The lead institution in organizing these events is the Janos Neumann Computer Society. In close collaboration with it and many other experts in theoretical and applied sciences, the Science and Innovation Section of the Consulate General of Hungary is committed to promoting Neumann’s scientific legacy in every possible forum. Thanks to the close cooperation with many stakeholders, there will be conferences, exhibitions, cultural and educational programs in New York, Philadelphia and many other cities in the United States in the fall of 2023 and spring of 2024.
