2nd Algant Alumni Network Symposium (SYMPAAN)

The second edition of the Algant Alumni Network Symposium (SYMPAAN) will take place from the 3rd to the 7th of October 2023, at St Jacut de La Mer, in Bretagne, France – the talks, the meals and the overnight stay.

About the Event

The primary objective of SYMPAAN is to bring together all Algant Alumni, regardless of the path they have taken after Algant, and to provide an event that appeals to everyone, from those still in academia, to those employed in the private sector, and those working in maths education and/or popularisation. The symposium has been carefully planned to offer a platform for all attendees to engage with their peers, share knowledge, and collaborate on emerging research in mathematics.

The event will be structured as follows:

The first two and a half days, from Tuesday the 3rd afternoon until Thursday the 5th, will focus on mathematics research in academia. Attendees will have the opportunity to share and discuss their research findings with fellow researchers.

The last two days will be dedicated to Algant Alumni working outside academia. Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with industry experts, share experiences and insights, and participate in workshops and roundtables on various related topics.

We recognize that attending the full symposium may be challenging, especially for those employed outside academia. Therefore, we offer the possibility of arriving on Thursday the 5th to attend the remaining two days of the symposium.


Some funding is available. We will most likely be able to cover lodging expenses for all the participants.

How to Get There

From Rennes Train Station

There is a direct train from Paris Montparnasse to Rennes. We will organize a shuttle from Rennes train station to the Abbaye of St. Jacut.

From Rennes Airport

The closest airport is Rennes Airport. There is a TER (a train) that takes you from the airport to the Rennes train station. The problem is then reduced to the From Rennes Train Station case.

We look forward to welcoming you to St Jacut de La Mer, Bretagne, France, for an engaging and informative week of mathematics research and collaboration.
