The core conference times (between 1.30 p.m. CEST and 6 p.m.) are divided into plenary talks (red) and sessions on contributed work. The plenary talks will be held on Zoom and the contributed sessions in the Gathertown conference space.

The poster session (Bjørnøya) Monday 2:30 – 3:30 will be held in the two poster rooms on Gathertown.   All other sessions are held in the western conference room in Gathertown. The session Kvaløya is the software session.

Additionally, you can access the plenary talk zoom stream also via the eastern conference room in Gathertown. Furthermore, you can explore the Women of Mathematics photo exhibition in Gathertown, as well.

As the MEGA 21 conference will be virtual and all of the participants will be located at different places around the world, we plan for additional photo challanges throughout the conference highlighting this global nature of MEGA 21 – details during the conference.

On Thursday after the core conference times, there will be a meeting of the MEGA advisory board at 6.30 p.m. in Zoom.

There will be a Saturday Afternoon GAthering : Fun In math and the celebration of Fifty Thorsten Years on Saturday. This is not directly related to the conference but all participants are welcome to attend.
