The Islamic Golden Age traditionally dated from the mid-7th century to mid-13th century. Muslim scholars made significant and original contributions to mathematics, astronomy, chemistry, and medicine. They corrected previous astronomical data, constructed the world's first observatory, and invented the astrolabe, nicknamed "a mathematical jewel" at the time.

In this presentation, the Speakers will discuss what the Islamic Golden Age was and what advancements and achievements happened in that time, with emphasis on Astronomy and Mathematics.
