Past Workshops

Topological Data Analysis
Topological Data Analysis
April 26-30, 2021

 

 

In this age of rapidly increasing access to ever larger data sets, it has become clear that studying the “shape” of data using the tools of combinatorial and algebraic topology can lead to much deeper insights than other standard methods when analyzing complex data sets. Topological data analysis (TDA) is the exciting and highly active new field of research that encompasses these productive developments at the interface of algebraic topology, statistics, and data science.

The Multifaceted Complexity of Machine Learning
The Multifaceted Complexity of Machine Learning
April 12-16, 2021

 

 

Modern machine learning methods have demonstrated an unprecedented potential to solve challenging problems in many areas. However, foundational understanding regarding how and when certain methods are adequate to use and most effective in solving tasks of interest is still emerging. A central question at the heart of this endeavor is to understand the different facets of the complexity of machine learning tasks.

Confronting Climate Change
Confronting Climate Change

March 1-5, 2021

 

The workshop will bring together leaders in mathematics, statistics, and atmospheric sciences to confront grand climate challenges and their impacts. A major goal of the program will be to develop next-generation suites of science-driven mathematical and statistical tools and capabilities to address decision-relevant climate hazards and impacts.

Mathematical and Computational Materials Science
Mathematical and Computational Materials Science

February 15-19, 2021

 

Computational Materials Science is a branch of the engineering sciences that lies at the intersection of many disciplines. It describes how materials deform, are damaged, and age. This workshop identify questions where mathematics can play a significant role in the future.

Dealing with COVID-19 in Theory and Practice
Dealing with COVID-19 in Theory and Practice
October 29-30, 2020

 

The extraordinary impact of COVID-19 requires equally extraordinary measures, which is the focus of this workshop. Four major themes will be represented: Public Health Challenges, The Role of Data Science, Measuring and Managing Economic Impact.
