Modeling and Computational Approaches to Individual and Collective Cell Movement in Complex Environments
26 Sep 2021 - 01 Oct 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Locomotion of cells, both individually and collectively, plays an important role in development, the immune response, wound healing, and cancer metastasis. Movement requires force transmission to the environment, and motile cells are robustly-designed nanomachines that often can cope with a variety of environmental conditions by altering the mode of force transmission – which ranges from crawling to swimming. The shape and integrity of a cell is determined by its cytoskeleton, and thus the shape changes that may be required to move involve controlled remodeling of the cytoskeleton. Motion in vivo is often in response to extracellular signals, which requires the ability to detect such signals and transduce them into the shape changes and force generation needed for movement. Thus the nanomachine is complex, and while much is known about individual components involved in movement, an integrated understanding of single cell motility, even in simple cells such as bacteria, is not at hand. At the next level, collective movement requires coordination of these nanomachines, which introduces another level of complexity. This complexity has stimulated mathematical modelling and computational simulations of cell and tissue movement at various levels, which has advanced our understanding of movement on multiple time and space scales.

EANAM2021 — 9th East Asian Numerical Astrophysics Meeting
27 Sep 2021 - 01 Oct 2021 • Okinawa, Japan
Numerical simulations have become even more important as detailed comparisons between theories and observations are now possible at a deeper level in most fields of astrophysics. The aim of this series of meetings is to bring (but not limited to) East-Asian numerical astrophysicists together and provide chances to learn each other's work and explore possible collaborations among them. The scope of the meeting will encompass all major astronomical research fields that involve numerical simulations, including (but not limited to) cosmology, astronomical hydrodynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, radiative transfer, particle acceleration, and planetary / stellar / galactic dynamics. In addition, there will also be a focus on computer science applications directed toward astrophysics including numerical methods, simulation data analysis, high performance computing, and optimization for use on large scale computer clusters. Participants from outside of the East Asia are warmly welcome as well.

Machine Learning for Climate
01 Nov 2021 - 04 Nov 2021 • Santa Barbara, United States
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
The theoretical understanding of the Earth system has fundamentally advanced in recent decades in parallel to an exponential increase of observations and modeling data. However, climate scientists cannot meet the challenge of informing society about changes that may occur in the future at regional and local scales because many two-way, multi-scale processes that encompass the physical chemical and biological realms continue to elude us. Big data and the associated algorithms (Machine Learning) provide the opportunity to learn about quantities related to the climate systems in ways and with an amount of detail that were infeasible only a few years ago. The opportunity for descriptive inference creates the chance for climate scientists to ask causal questions and create new theories or validate old ones. Furthermore, when paired with modeling experiments or robust research in model parameterizations, “big data” can provide data-driven answers to vexing questions.

This conference will set the stage for exchanging tools and ideas and will help identify key problems where consistent progress is achievable through collaborative efforts. The theme of the conference will extend more broadly than the Physics focus of the main program, in order to elicit input from a wide range of experts across the earth system and computational sciences who are involved in the climate change problem. Given the level of interdisciplinarity and exchange that we aim for and expect, this conference will summarize current understanding and open questions, and will set the stage for achieving the aims of the associated KITP program.

Transport in Stellar Interiors
15 Nov 2021 - 18 Nov 2021 • Santa Barbara, United States
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Many of the largest uncertainties in the physics of stars are related to transport in their interiors, including the transport of heat, chemical elements, and angular momentum. Our current understanding of these processes has been challenged and refined by recent advances in observational data, including TESS and spectroscopic studies, by new work on 1D models, and by the ability to generate more sophisticated 3D simulations. This conference will bring together members of the community working on transport processes from a variety of angles, including observations, theoretical calculations, and stellar models, with an emphasis on how these techniques can be combined to improve our understanding of stellar physics.

Analytic and Geometric Aspects of Gauge Theory (GT)
22 Aug 2022 - 21 Dec 2022 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
The mathematics and physics around gauge theory have, since their first interaction in the mid 1970's, prompted tremendous developments in both mathematics and physics. Deep and fundamental tools in partial differential equations have been developed to provide rigorous foundations for the mathematical study of gauge theories. This led to ongoing revolutions in the understanding of manifolds of dimensions 3 and 4 and presaged the development of symplectic topology. Ideas from quantum field theory have provided deep insights into new directions and conjectures on the structure of gauge theories and suggested many potential applications. The focus of this program will be those parts of gauge theory which hold promise for new applications to geometry and topology and require development of new analytic tools for their study.
