GameNets 2017 — 7th EAI International Conference on Game Theory for Networks
ID
828976
Dates
09 May 2017 - 10 May 2017
Location
Knoxville, United States
Abstract
Game theory has recently become a useful tool for modeling and studying various networks. The past decade has witnessed a huge explosion of interest in issues that intersect networks and game theory. With the rapid growth of data traffic, from any kind of devices and networks, game theory is requiring more intelligent transformation. This conference encourages archival quality papers that advance the state-of-the-art and practical applications of intelligent game theory. The goal is to gather research contributions, from game theory and networks, that address the major opportunities and challenges in applying traditional game theory as well as intelligent game theory to the understanding and designing of modern network systems, with emphasis on both new analytical techniques and novel application scenarios.

ICERM Topical Workshop: Probabilistic Scientific Computing: Statistical inference approaches to numerical analysis and algorithm design
ID
882372
Dates
05 Jun 2017 - 09 Jun 2017
Location
Providence, RI, United States
Abstract
There is an urgent and unmet need to formally analyze, design, develop and deploy advanced methods and algorithms that can scale in statistical and computational efficiency to the size of modern data sets and the complexity of contemporary mathematical models. Addressing this need will require a holistic approach involving new foundational theory, algorithms, and programming language design.

AIM workshop — Phase transitions in randomized computational problems
ID
815209
Dates
12 Jun 2017 - 16 Jun 2017
Location
American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, Calif, United States
Abstract
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to the study of random constraint satisfaction problems (CSPs), with an emphasis on threshold phenomena and related algorithmic challenges. Heuristic methods of statistical physics predict a rich phase diagram for many problems of this type. In recent years, building on the physics insight, some of these predictions have been rigorously proved.

6th Cornell Conference on Analysis, Probability, and Mathematical Physics on Fractals
ID
881090
Dates
13 Jun 2017 - 17 Jun 2017
Location
Cornell University, Ithaca, United States
Abstract
This triennial conference series, the first event in which took place in 2002 and of which the 2017 meeting will be the sixth installment, is one of the major conferences whose focus is on mathematics on fractal sets. Topics to be discussed range from harmonic analysis to probability, from number theory to stochastic analysis. The long list of keynote speakers at the 2017 conference includes the names of most of the world's leading researchers in the field. Students and junior researchers from underrepresented groups in STEM are particularly encouraged to apply for travel funding.

ICERM Topical Workshop: Robust Methods in Probability & Finance
ID
882393
Dates
19 Jun 2017 - 23 Jun 2017
Location
Providence, RI, United States
Abstract
On financial markets one never observes the same data twice; market configurations are subject to change across time. This poses some specific challenges to inference, prediction, and optimal control in financial contexts. Classically, strong model assumptions are needed, while current research aims at methods which are robust with respect to model misspecification. This issue lies at the heart of the envisaged workshops, and the program of the workshops will reflect recent developments in this direction. The last decade saw a rise of robust methods in probability and finance resulting in new numerical and theoretical challenges. Interestingly, these challenges bring together methodologies from PDEs, probability, stochastic analysis, and control theory. Mathematically speaking, robustness typically translates into nonlinearity showing up as a defining feature. Examples in this direction are nonlinear expectations, nonlinear PDEs, and H-infinity optimal stochastic control. Finance has a long tradition of fruitful interactions between these areas. Numerical results often build the first step for subsequent theoretical analysis (and vice versa), thus fitting specifically into ICERM's orientation towards computational and experimental research.

Stochastic Sampling and Accelerated Time Dynamics on Multidimensional Surfaces
ID
832286
Dates
16 Oct 2017 - 20 Oct 2017
Location
Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States
Abstract
In a multitude of research problems at the forefront of hard- and soft-matter simulation, adequate sampling of the free-energy landscape is a major challenge. Overcoming free-energy barriers in the search for equilibrium states and accurately characterizing temporal evolution that occurs as a system evolves through a series of free-energy minima limit progress in understanding materials synthesis and processing, biology, colloidal engineering, and earth sciences. We will discuss advances and challenges in methods such as transition-path sampling and transition-interface sampling, alchemical methods, umbrella sampling, identifying order parameters and collective variables, accelerated molecular dynamics, metadynamics, variational approaches, replica methods, and coarse-graining.

Workshop IV: Uncertainty Quantification for Stochastic Systems and Applications
ID
881641
Dates
13 Nov 2017 - 17 Nov 2017
Location
Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States
Abstract
In past decades, considerable effort has been devoted to first-principles modeling of materials and materials design. However, uncertainty quantification over multiple scales, especially when some of them are inherently stochastic, is not sufficiently understood despite having critical impact on guiding experimental efforts and design. The uncertainty in materials modeling and design can arise either from the stochastic nature of microscopic description, sampling and numerical errors or from improper modeling assumptions, inadequate or inaccurate parametrization of the system and/or the objective functionals that guide the design optimization. The methods for quantifying the impact of such errors and uncertainties have been recently studied in different communities, including computational quantum chemistry, materials engineering, and mathematics. Applications received by Monday, September 18, 2017 will receive fullest consideration.
