2 Day Workshop at BIRS — Alberta-Montana Combinatorics and Algorithms Day
22 May 2020 - 24 May 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
May 21-22, 2020 will see the first Alberta-Montana Combinatorics and Algorithms Day hosted at the Banff International Research Station (BIRS). The event brings together faculty and students from three Alberta universities (in Calgary, Lethbridge, and Edmonton) and the University of Montana (Missoula). Combinatorics is the branch of mathematics concerned with finite sets: their properties, structures, and number. Studying the classic Rubik's Cube reveals the number of possible positions (it's 43,252,003,274,489,856,000). Understanding the cube's structure leads to efficient algorithms for solving it (an Algorithm is a sequence of well-defined instructions for solving a problem, answering a question, or even playing a game). In 2010, a group of researchers working with Google proved that every one of that staggering number of positions could be solved in no more than 20 moves.

Seminaire de Mathematiques Superieures 2020: Discrete Probability, Physics and Algorithms
29 Jun 2020 - 10 Jul 2020 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
Probability theory, statistics as well as mathematical physics have increasingly been used in computer science. The goal of this school is to provide a unique opportunity for graduate students and young researchers to developed multi-disciplinary skills in a rapidly evolving area of mathematics.

CCCG 2020 — 32nd Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry
05 Aug 2020 - 07 Aug 2020 • University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Canada
Organizer:
University of Saskatchewan
Abstract:
The Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry (CCCG) is a forum to disseminate and discuss new theoretical and applied results in discrete and computational geometry. CCCG focuses on the design of efficient algorithms, the development of software, and the study of the mathematical foundations of computational problems whose formulations involve geometric constraints. The field of computational geometry is motivated by problems from a broad range of application areas, as diverse as computer graphics and animation, computer vision, computer-aided design and manufacturing, geographic information systems, pattern recognition, wireless communications, robotics, protein folding, urban planning, graph drawing, or statistical analysis.
