    سوتا در جنوب کالیفرنیا مراسمی در جهت گرامی داشت یاد دکتر مریم میرزاخانی در روز یکشنبه ۲۳ ام جولای از ساعت ۱۱ صبح تا ۱ بعد از ظهر در دانشگاه UC Irvine برگزار خواهد کرد.


  • July 17, 2017 05:14 | Shayan Ghotbi (Administrator)


    درگذشت دکتر مریم میرزاخانی، نابغه نامدار ریاضی، موجب تاثر و ناراحتی بسیاری در ایران و جهان شد. دانشمندی متواضع که با رفتنش اگرچه ستاره ای در جهان خاموش شد اما آثار، تلاش و دانشش تا سالیان و قرن ها ماندگار است.


    مریم میرزاخانی، دانش آموخته دوره های کارشناسی و کارشناسی ارشد دانشگاه شریف در رشته ریاضی، تنها زن و تنها ایرانی برنده مهمترین مدال ریاضی جهان، استاد تمام (پروفسور) دانشگاه استنفورد، برنده دهها جایزه و مدال داخلی و بین المللی و عضو نهادهای معتبر و مهم علمی، بسیاری را جذب ریاضی و علوم و تحقیقاتش کرد. فروتنی و تمرکز بسیارش به تحقیقات و فعالیت های حرفه اش امکان میزبانی و تجلیل از وی در گردهمایی ٢٠١٦ فارغ التحصیلان شریف در واشنگتن را نیز فراهم نیاورد.


    انجمن دانشگاه صنعتی شریف (سوتا)، ضمن تسلیت به خانواده، نزدیکان، همکاران، خانواده بزرگ شریف و هموطنان، امیدوار است جوانان و علاقه مندان به علوم و دانش، مسیر و تلاش این دانشمند درخشان و بی نظیر را همانطور که او نیز به این مهم علاقه داشت ادامه دهند.


    همچنین سوتا از تمامی اساتید، دانشجویان و دانش آموختگان دانشگاه شریف دعوت می کند تا با ثبت روز تولد وی به عنوان روز مریم میرزاخانی در تقویم دانشگاه شریف و دانشگاه های کشور نه تنها یاد و خاطره اش را گرامی بداریم بلکه این روز را نمادی برای تداوم مسیر و تلاشش قرار دهیم.

    This is to inform our members that three of the elected main members are unfortunately resigned. In line with Section 18 of the Bylaws, the four remaining members decided unanimously to invite Mrs. Farzin Radkani and Mr. Ali Rasekh in order to fill two of the vacant seats and gain back the quorum. The board has now approved to carry out a wider search to find a suitable candidate for the 7th seat (and potentially substitute seats), as part of its responsibility to fill the vacant seats based on the said section.


    Messrs Kianmehr, Hashemi and Sadri tendered their resignation after their proposed changes for the board in the first meeting, couldn't be approved. Majority of the board (and the advisors') found the request non-compliant with our bylaws after extended discussions which continued even after the first meeting.


    We will keep you posted as we make progress with this process. Please also note that the board meeting minutes are available to regular members via SUTA website.

    SUTA's Complaint Against new U.S. President Executive Order



    Sharif University of Technology Association (SUTA) as the global alumni association of this university having over 6,000 alumni in the U.S. would like to express its utmost concern on the recent discriminatoryExecutive Order signed by President Donald Trump on Friday January 27th 2017, banning Iranians and citizens of six other Muslim majority countries from entering the U.S. for 90 days, and the Syrian refugees for 120 days. While being a temporary measure, given the ongoing trends in US politics, there is a considerable likelihood that this or similar limitations become permanent.

    Iranian nationals are listed as targeted people in this order (and previous measures such as 2015 visa waiver bill, H.R.158) despite the fact that no Iranian nationals has ever been confirmed to be involved in any terrorist activity in the United States. After 90 days, the Departments of State and Homeland Security (DS & DHS) will require the governments of listed countries to provide enough evidence about the visa applicant to prove that he/she poses no security threat to the US. Considering the political tensions between the U.S. and Iranian governments, it can be assumed that the Iranian government will not be cooperative on this matter, leading to Iranian citizens to be permanently banned from visiting the US.

    Iranian scholars in general and graduates of Sharif University of Technology in particular have been significant contributor in the advancement of science and technology in the US over many decades. Moreover, U.S administrations have repeatedly emphasized on the improvement of cultural relations among the two nations particularly through academic means. Unfortunately, this executive order and expectedly strict follow up vetting measures will cut such cultural ties. It will have a devastating impact on many innocent and hard-working individuals and their families without any foreseeable improvement on the security of the United States.

    We strongly urge current administration to revisit this decision and also call all our members especially those residing in the United States to immediate action to prevent such unfair treatment by raising their voices and expressing their complaints through all possible legal means including posting on social media, contacting public media, sending letters or emails to the White House, and contacting senators and the members of congress in any city or state they reside.

    We hope the unified voices of Iranian community inside and outside the United States in conjunction with the expected solidarity from non-Iranian academician, artists, and politicians (such as Madeleine Albright, former US Secretary of States) would encourage the politicians in Washington DC to stop this damaging order.
