The fifth edition of the DDays LAC will take place in the beautiful city of Punta del Este, located at the southernmost point in Uruguay, where the Río de la Plata river meets the Atlantic Ocean, and only an hour and a half away from the capital city, Montevideo (for information on how to arrive, please visit: https://ddayslac2018.org/page). The purpose of this meeting is to bring together world specialists on computational, applied, and theoretical research in all areas related to non-linear dynamics with scientists and students from Latin America and the Caribbean.
El pasado 11 de mayo se realizó la 2ª Olimpiada Latinoamericana y del Caribe de Física Universitaria (OLUF). La Olimpiada, organizada por la Sociedad Cubana de Física y la Facultad de Física de la Universidad de la Habana contó este año con el coauspicio de la UNESCO, el Centro latinoamericano de Física, la Academia de Ciencias de Cuba, la Federación Iberoamericana de Sociedades de Física y el ICTP South American Institute for Fundamental Research de Brasil.
El comité técnico que preparó y calificó los problemas estuvo integrado por los profesores cubanos: Alejandro Cabo Montes de Oca, Carlos Gandarilla Pérez, Edwin Pedrero González, Carlos Rodríguez Castellanos, Ernesto Altshuler Alvarez, Héctor Borroto Gutiérrez, Julio Cesar Drake Alvarez y Osvaldo de Melo Pereira.

The goal of this international workshop is to explore the state of the art of the Dark Matter field, discussing the latest developments in all branches: theoretical, collider, direct and indirect, and astro. By bringing together the South American and international community we aim to foster new collaborations and new long-lasting partnerships, at a most timely moment in the development of the field. There is no registration fee.

The direct observation of gravitational waves (GWs) by the LIGO scientific collaboration opened the new science of Gravitational Astronomy. Scientists have compared this to Galileo pointing his telescope to the sky, offering instead an ear to the cosmos. After the remarkable landmark of detection, GW science will soon turn into the study of the properties of the sources and address fundamental questions in astrophysics and cosmology. In particular, binary coalescences are posed to become the leading probe to test gravitational dynamics, and the physics of compact objects under unique conditions and GWs propagation can probe the Universe dynamics on cosmological scale.

This school is a one-week intensive course aimed at students studying a STEM subject, and for those who are interested in gaining entrepreneurial skills with the view to commercialise scientific ideas or inventions.
Participants will explore the connection between science and business, and sessions will be delivered by experts in business and in technological applications involving agriculture, health and education. In addition to discussing these technological applications, the school will also introduce topics that are fundamental to business such as intellectual property (IP) and patenting, business plan fundamentals, technology readiness levels, market analysis, business financials, presentation and pitching skills and several others. Students will have the opportunity to practise their pitching skills through a group project and a pitching competition at the end of the week.
