The XXI Meeting of the Italian Mathematical Association (UMI) will be held in Pavia on September 2-7, 2019. The program will include a public lecture by Fields Medallist **Alessio Figalli**. The Fields Medal is nicknamed "the Nobel prize in Mathematics" and it is widely considered the most prestigious prize awarded to mathematicians.

The objective of the conference is to bring together the Italian mathematical community and promote scientific interaction. The program will include plenary talks, invited talks, and shorter talks held in parallel sessions. Young scientists are particularly encouraged to attend as the meeting will provide a great chance to present and discuss their research.

The Local Organizing Committee is composed of members of IMATI-CNR and the Department of Mathematics of the University of Pavia. Further information is available at the website
