Thematic Conference





















3rd International Conference on Numerical and Symbolic Computation

Developments and Applications

Guimarães, Minho, Portugal, 6-7 April 2017


The Conference will be held in Guimarães, located in the north region of Portugal and recognized as Humanity’s Cultural Heritage. The historic town of Guimarães is associated with the emergence of the Portuguese national identity in the 12th century.

Guimarães is an exceptionally well-preserved and authentic example of the evolution of a medieval settlement into a modern town. Its rich building typology exemplifies the specific development of Portuguese architecture from the 15th to 19th century through the consistent use of traditional building materials and techniques.

Couros is the south area of the historic centre of Guimarães, whose name is associated with the tanning activity (Couros meaning leather in Portuguese), and which was crucial to the city’s economy since the Middle Ages.


In the late 19th century, Guimarães was the most important tanning centre of northern Portugal, concentrating the main industrial and production units in the Couros Area. In 1996 the Town Council of Guimarães initiated
the rehabilitation of this industrial centre, and in 2001 the Multifunctional Complex of Couros was born.
A platform was created in order to induce economic activity based on a sustainable interaction between innovation,
technology and arts, and anchored in an intense effort aimed at training human resources.

The Conference will be held in the auditorium which adddress is given bellow (in the Couros área).
