He is a member of the Systems and Control Group, as part of the Center for Research & Development in Mathematics and Applications (CIDMA), which is hosted at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Aveiro, Aveiro, Portugal.

In 2015, Nuno Bastos received the EURASIP Best Paper Award for the Signal Processing Journal at the „EUSIPCO 2015: 23rd European Signal Processing Conference” for his joint work with Delfim F.M.Torres and Rui A.C.Ferreira, entitled „Discrete-time fractional variational problems”.

His research interests are mainly fractional calculus, calculus of variations, time-scale and optimal control theory. In parallel to the teaching and research activities. Nuno R. O. Bastos also held, regularly, sessions in Popularization of Mathematics in schools with the goal to motivate students to this subject.

## Lectures/Wykłady in PDM:

**20.11, hours: 15-16***A short journey through the universe of mathematical games*, Nuno Bastos, (from 6 years old)

In this session some mathematical games will be presented. It will also show how mathematics can be useful to obtain a winning strategy in some of them and you will try to find the best strategy to win the others…

Each participant will need a tablet or computer to play.**20.11, hours: 16-17***Mystery and Magic of Mathematics*, Nuno Bastos, (from 10 years old)

This will be a session of math, mystery, and magic. Wonderful math tricks and some tricks explanations abound: the session will be filled with magical mathematics and mathematical magic.

If you have something to write with, something to write on and a deck of playing cards, you are prepared to start a mathematical adventure — you will come out smarter, wiser, and happier!
