Raul Tempone - King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia
We will first recall, for a general audience, the use of Monte Carlo and Multi-level Monte Carlo (MLMC) methods. Then, we will discuss recent developments on  MLMC.  Later, we will describe and...

Jan Tuitman - KU Leuven
Over the past years I have developed an algorithm for computing zeta functions of algebraic curves over finite fields using p-adic cohomology. However, the input to this algorithm is not the curve...

Prof. Stefan Siegmund - Dresden University of Technology, Germany
Bone remodeling is a lifelong process where mature bone tissue is removed from the skeleton and new bone tissue is formed. These processes also control the reshaping or replacement of bone following...

Juan G. Criado del Rey - University of Cantabria
Distributing points on spheres or other sets is a very classical problem. Its modern formulation in terms of energy-minimising configurations is due to the discoverer of the electron J. J. Thomson...

Prof. Giulio Casati - Center for Complex Systems, Como-Italy
  Providing a sustainable supply of energy to the world’s population will become a major societal problem for the 21st century as fossil fuel supplies decrease and world demand and environmental...

Dietmar Bisch - Vanderbilt University
An inclusion of certain algebras of operators on Hilbert sapce is called a subfactor. It is a mathematical object with an extremely interesting representation theory that is similar in many ways to...

Dr Jonathan Kress - Director of First Year, School of Mathematics and Statistics, UNSW
Turnitin is a service which has been integrated into Moodle and is a means of having electronic submission and storage  of assignments, plagiarism checks, and online grading etc. in this workshop/...

Dr. Alexander Litvinenko - King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia
This talk consists of two parts. In the first part we use low-rank tensor methods to solve elliptic PDE with uncertain coefficients. We will start with discretization, applying Karhunen-Loeve...

Quanshui Wu - Fudan University
I will talk about Poisson cohomology and Batlin-Vilkovisky algebra structure on it, in contrast Hochschild cohomology. I will concentrate on the Frobenius case after the introduction part.

Kwok-kun Kwong - National Cheng Kung University
The well-known Alexandrov theorem states that the only closed embedded surfaces with constant mean curvature in Euclidean space are the round spheres. There are many generalizations, commonly known...
