About Warsaw

Warsaw, the capital and largest city of Poland, is a one of the main scientific centers in Central Europe, being a home to three universities and the Polish Academy of Sciences. Warsaw Center of Mathematics and Computer Science (Warszawskie Centrum Nauk Matematycznych) is a joint project of two scientific units: the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics of the University of Warsaw (MIMUW), and the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IMPAN).

The idea of Warsaw Center of Mathematics and Computer Science is inspired by the Warsaw School of Mathematics founded in 1920's, which main achievements were in the the fields of logic, set theory, point-set topology and real analysis. Notable members of the group were Kazimierz Kuratowski, Alfred Tarski and Waclaw Sierpinski.
