Focussed Research Groups at BIRS — Mathematical Modelling and Machine Learning for Phonetics
19 Apr 2020 - 26 Apr 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Phonetics is the study of the sounds of the worlds languages and how they are used to communicate. A wealth of information is known by linguists about which sounds are used, how they are produced, how children learn these sounds, and how the use of sounds differs between different groups of speakers. Still, many fundamental questions remain unanswered relating to this important part of human language. The purpose of this Focussed Research Group is to bring together mathematicians and computer scientists who are interested in phonetics with linguists who are seeking ways to i) handle the massive amounts of data that are available in the human speech stream, and ii) develop mathematical models to clarify research questions and guide empirical study.
Workshop on Spatial Modeling of Infectious Diseases: Environment and Health
08 Jun 2020 - 12 Jun 2020 • Montreal, Canada
Internationally, the United Nations has called for a more rigorous approach, including the application of spatial-temporal modeling, for surveillance and disease reporting, particularly for groups societally marginalized. To address this gap, we will invite world-renowned researchers with expertise in mathematical and statistical modeling of spatial and temporal data.
2 Day Workshop at BIRS — Canadian Queueing Theorists and Practitioners Conference
21 Aug 2020 - 23 Aug 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Queueing theory is concerned with developing and investigating mathematical models of systems where “customers” wait for “service.” The terms “customers” and “servers” are generic. Customers could, for example, be humans waiting in a physical line or waiting on hold on the telephone, jobs waiting to be processed in a factory, or tasks waiting for processing in a computer or communication system. The CanQueue annual conference started from a workshop, organized by Prof. Alfa, at the University of Manitoba in 1999. Since then, twenty (20) CanQueue conferences have been held in Canada, including CanQueue 2002 at U of S; 2004 at UBC Okanagan, 2006 and 2011 at Banff, both sponsored by BIRS. It was a decision at the CanQueue2019, at Fields Institute in Toronto in August 2019 that CanQueue 2020 will be organized by us and held at Banff (based on the feedback from Canadian queueing community people).
Conference-Service.com offers, as part of its business activities, a directory of upcoming scientific and technical meetings. The calendar is published for the convenience of conference participants and we strive to support conference organisers who need to publish their upcoming events.
