The Bridges Conferences, running annually since 1998, brings together practicing mathematicians, scientists, artists, educators, musicians, writers, computer scientists, sculptors, dancers, weavers, and model builders in a lively atmosphere of exchange and mutual encouragement. Important components of these conferences, in addition to formal presentations, are hands-on workshops, gallery displays of visual art, working sessions with artists who are crossing the mathematics-arts boundaries, and musical/theatrical events in the evenings.

In 2011, the Bridges Conference will be held in the University of Coimbra, Portugal, July 27-31. The University of Coimbra has been established in 1290 as the first university in Portugal, and the first Portuguese language university in the world!

As always, the Conference will feature talks and artworks presenting the latest ideas in mathematics and the arts from experts around the world. There will be artists and artworks representing painting, drawing, sculpture, computer graphics, fiber arts, music, dance, and more. There will be hands-on workshops, special music, theater, and movie evenings, and a day-long excursion to museums and cultural sites. The language of the conference is English. All papers are refereed and the accepted papers will appear in a printed proceedings.
