The following is a list of international congresses that we are aware of in the Australian region, or which may be of special interest to Australian mathematicians. A much broader list of international conferences is maintained by the American Mathematical Society.
Heidelberg Laureate Forum 2016
Dates: 18–23 September 2016
Venue: Universität Heidelberg, Germany
Laureates of mathematics and computer science meet the next generation.
Young Researchers are invited to apply online for participation in the 4th HLF. The online application tool is open from 1 November 2015, to 3 February 2016.
The 3rd Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF) surpassed our expectations, a respectable feat due to the success of the previous two Forums. We sincerely extend our gratitude to the laureates, the young researchers and to all of those that helped to make the 3rd HLF such a unique event.
The 7th Workshop on High-Dimensional Approximation
Dates & Venue: 13–17 February 2017; University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia
The High-Dimensional Approximation (HDA) Workshop is a series of biennial international meetings covering current research on all numerical aspects of high-dimensional problems. This seventh workshop will be held at UNSW in Sydney (HDA2017), with participants again welcomed from all around the world.
The scope of the seventh workshop ranges from high-dimensional approximation theory over computational methods to engineering and scientific applications. Topics include, but are not limited to,
- Sparse grid methods
- Quasi-Monte Carlo methods
- Tensor decompositions
- Polynomial chaos expansions
- Sparse approximations
- Reduced basis methods
- Multi-level methods
- Bayesian inversion
- Uncertainty quantification
Participation is open to all interested in high-dimensional computational mathematics and science.
A key feature of this workshop is that there are no parallel sessions and generally all talks will be of equal length. Participants are welcome to present work in progress and there will be time set aside for informal discussions. The number of talks will be limited. It is not essential that everyone gives a talk. Collaborators are encouraged to coordinate and elect a representative to present joint work.
In this workshop we will honour and celebrate the 65th birthday of Prof. Markus Hegland. Markus is a founding member of the HDA workshop series. He is also a well respected leader in computational mathematics and optimization in Australia. We hope to take this opportunity to engage the HDA global community with other computational mathematics groups in Australia.
To assist us with planning, please go to the website at your earliest convenience to register especially if you are interested in giving a talk. Travel, visa and accommodation information is already available. More information about registration fee payment and abstract submission will be available on the website later in the year.
