40 Years Zuse Institute Berlin

In 2024, the Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB) celebrates its 40th anniversary with a selected series of high-profile events. Since its foundation in 1984, the ZIB has established itself as a pioneer in interdisciplinary research, making outstanding contributions in the fields of algorithmic mathematics and computer science. Originally founded as a center for high-performance computing (HPC), the ZIB has developed into one of the leading research institutions, combining methodological innovations with practical applications and implementing these on state-of-the-art high-performance computing hardware.

We warmly invite you to celebrate this significant anniversary with us and to discover the extensive contributions of the ZIB to science, society, and beyond.

Pi Day on March 14

Pi Day on March 14

Since 2020, Pi Day has been celebrated worldwide as the International Day of Mathematics on March 14. This date was chosen because, in the American notation (3/14), it corresponds to the first three digits of the famous mathematical constant π (Pi). The Zuse Institute Berlin offers a specially designed program for students from the 10th grade on this special day, which serves as an ideal destination for school class and course excursions.

Girls' Day on April 25
