4th IMA Conference on Inverse Problems from Theory to Application
11 Sep 2024 - 13 Sep 2024 • Bath, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA)
Abstract:
Inverse problems are widespread in many varied fields such as medical and satellite imaging, biology, astronomy, geophysics, environmental sciences, computer vision, energy, finance, and defence. These problems are inverse in the sense that they arise from seeking to use a mathematical or physical model “backwards” to indirectly determine a quantity of interest from the effect that this quantity causes on some observed data.

Mathematics for Governance Design — A Mathematics for Humanity Workshop
07 Oct 2024 - 11 Oct 2024 • ICMS, Bayes Centre, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Organizer:
The International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS)
Abstract:
Mathematical representations of complex institutions will enable us to move beyond the limits of tools such as game theory by introducing the composability, abstraction, and modularity of software engineering. With formal representations, scholars can begin to imagine a computationally aided design (CAD) of arbitrarily complex institutions. For example, within recent frameworks like "categorical game theory," a focus of this workshop, researchers from across the social sciences can compose systems of economic games into complex governance institutions. With such advances, computationally inclined economists, sociologists, political scientists, and natural resource scholars gain a common language for representing fundamental challenges in the design of social systems.

Mathematical Materials Science: Defects and Polycrystals
14 Oct 2024 - 18 Oct 2024 • ICMS, Bayes Centre, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Organizer:
The International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS)
Abstract:
This interdisciplinary meeting will bring together mathematicians and materials scientists working on defects and pattern formation in the microstructure of materials, with a particular emphasis on polycrystalline alloys, dislocations and grain boundaries. Both experimental and theoretical approaches will be covered, together with related mathematical methods from applied analysis and the calculus of variations.

Mathematical Models for Twenty-First Century Decisions: A Mathematics for Humanity workshop
21 Oct 2024 - 25 Oct 2024 • ICMS, Bayes Centre, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Organizer:
The International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS)
Abstract:
Mathematical models are widely used to inform high-impact decisions for humanity, such as responding to climate change, managing the economy, predicting and controlling renewable energy systems, and dealing with the COVID- 19 pandemic. Improvements in computing power and accessibility and new developments in machine learning have made sophisticated modelling machinery widely available even to people who are not well-acquainted with theoretical fundamentals of modelling and simulation. This presents risks: both risks of poor-quality modelling informing poor decision-making with high real-world impact, and also risks relating to the erosion of public trust in scientific information. These risks can be reduced by improving the conceptual and mathematical foundation on which socially-relevant modelling endeavours are based. While this is a critical justification in itself, there is also a huge opportunity to develop new mathematical tools for the next generation of models, to share recent developments and to bring together and nurture pockets of good practice from across modelling disciplines and areas of application, united by a common mathematical approach.

3MC+PIMS+ICMS Winter school — Multiscale Modeling: Infectious Diseases, Cancer and Treatments
02 Dec 2024 - 13 Dec 2024 • ICMS, Bayes Centre, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Organizer:
The International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS)
Abstract:
This Winter School is a part of an initiative aimed at advancing mathematical education and collaboration, with a specific focus on fostering ties between diverse groups and promoting mathematical modeling as a tool to address biomedical challenges, especially within the African context. Participants will gain valuable skills and experience, contributing to the global effort to enhance mathematical competence and diversity.

Blurring the lines between pure and applied through mixing
01 Jun 2025 - 06 Jun 2025 • Sabhal Mor Ostaig, Isle of Skye, United Kingdom
Organizer:
The International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS)
Abstract:
Recent mathematical breakthroughs have advanced our understanding of how fluids mix advected quantities like passive dyes and active densities. These discoveries impact statistical turbulence laws, dissipation enhancement, hydrodynamic stability, and convection processes. This one-week workshop will focus on rigorous mathematical findings, physical aspects of fluid mixing, and computational approaches, by bringing together several experts and future leaders in these fields.
