Subfactor theory is a subject from operator algebras, with many surprising connections to other areas of mathematics. This summer school will be devoted to understanding the representation theory of subfactors, with a particular emphasis on connections to quantum symmetries, fusion categories, planar algebras, and random matrice.

Recent years have seen a remarkable expansion of profound interactions between Algebraic Combinatorics, Algebraic Geometry, and Algebraic Topology, exhibiting sometimes surprising ties to Theoretical Physics. These interactions involve objects such as: Operator Algebras on Symmetric Functions; Macdonald Symmetric Functions; Graded Representations of the Symmetric and General Linear Groups; Cohomology Rings of Grassmann and Flag Manifolds; Rational Cherednik Algebras; Representation Stability; etc. Even more recently, Rectangular Catalan Combinatorics has been developed in relation with several subjects covering a wide range of areas of mathematics, including: Representation Theory of the Sn-modules of Diagonal Harmonic Polynomials or Diagonal Coinvariant Spaces; Flag Bundles over the Hilbert Scheme of Points in the Plane (or higher dimension spaces); Affine Springer Fibres; Coloured Khovanov-Rozansky Homology of (m, n)-Torus Knots; etc. Because of the intimate ties that all of these subjects share with algebraic combinatorics, and to underline that they typically involve actions of (perhaps deformed) groups, we have coined the term Equivariant Combinatorics to speak of them.

Fourth International conference on New Trends of Differential Equations in Sciences is organized by the Department of Differential Equations and Mathematical Physics at Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. Differential equations have a lot of applications in different scientific fields. This conference will be devoted to such applications. A number of phenomena in nature (physics, chemistry, biology) and in society (economics) result in problems leading to study of linear and nonlinear differential equations. The conference consists of invited and contributed papers. Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers on topics included but not limited to applications of differential equations in: - Mathematical Physics; - Mathematical Finance; - Mathematical Biology - Nonlinear waves; - Mechanics; - Neuroscience The proceedings will be published in Pliska Studia Mathematica Bulgarica (www.math.bas.bg/~pliska/).

Nonlinearity plays an important role in many fields of Science, Engineering and Technology. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers working on aspects of nonlinear phenomena and to encourage interaction between experts from different areas such as Applied Mathematics, Mathematical Analysis, Fluid Dynamics, Engineering and Physics. Recent theoretical developments, new computational methods and experimental findings will be presented and discussed. We plan to avoid parallel sessions and foster as much as possible communication across the different communities. Conference topics: Integrable systems, Nonlinear waves in fluids, Soliton theory, Nonlinear evolution PDEs, Orthogonal polynomials, Mathematical biology Coherent structures in shear flows and transition to turbulence.

The goal of this conference is to provide mathematics researchers from around the world, working in various mathematical disciplines, to discuss latest developments and share their research results in contemporary areas of mathematics research and applications. This conference also intends to forge new cross-disciplinary interactions among participants and farther existing partnerships among the international mathematics community and in particular, young researchers in Eastern Africa. The conference will be organized in plenary and parallel sessions of oral presentations. The Conference paper presentation sessions will be preceded by a number of 2-day schools (June 19 and 20) on broad research topics of contemporary interest and relevance.

The focus is on recent advances that have emerged in representation theory through cluster theory: n-representation theory, integrable systems and friezes, and silting and infinite dimensional representations. These areas of mathematics are enriched by their interactions with other areas of mathematics such as category theory, dynamical systems, and mathematical physics. Lecture courses: n-representation Theory: Peter Jorgensen (Newcastle); Integrable Systems and Friezes: Sophie Morier-Genoud (Paris), Infinite Dimensional Representations: Lidia Angeleri-H\"ugel (Verona), Course Abstracts available here: https://tinyurl.com/RS28CA.

Preservers Everywhere is an international conference on the dynamically developing topic commonly termed as "Preserver Problems". A preserver is a transformation between mathematical structures that leaves a certain quantity/operation/relation/set etc. invariant. The usual goal is to give a complete description of those transformations. Typical examples are, for instance, the homomorphisms of groups (i.e. maps which respect the group operations), or isometries of metric spaces (i.e. distance preserving maps). The purpose of this meeting is to bring together mathematicians from various areas who are either working on or interested in such problems. Among others, we will have talks on preserver problems related to Algebra, Analysis, Functional Analysis, Geometry, Linear Algebra, Mathematical Physics and Operator theory. We encourage everybody interested in this topic to participate the meeting.

On financial markets one never observes the same data twice; market configurations are subject to change across time. This poses some specific challenges to inference, prediction, and optimal control in financial contexts. Classically, strong model assumptions are needed, while current research aims at methods which are robust with respect to model misspecification. This issue lies at the heart of the envisaged workshops, and the program of the workshops will reflect recent developments in this direction. Topics of particular interest are dynamic and robust methods in the following areas: filtering, prediction, optimal control, calibration, pricing, risk management, and machine learning. This workshop is held under the auspicies of the VI-MSS program, in collaboration with the University of Freiburg.

The BD2K Training Coordinating Center is organizing an Innovation Lab to foster new interdisciplinary collaborations among quantitative and biomedical researchers to address data science challenges in our understanding of the microbiome.

The Math-to-Industry Boot Camp is an intense six-week session designed to provide graduate students with training and experience that is valuable for employment outside of academia. The program is targeted at PhD students in pure and applied mathematics. The boot camp consists of courses in the basics of programming, data analysis, and mathematical modeling. Students will work in teams on projects and will be provided with soft skills training. There will be two group projects during the session: a small-scale project designed to introduce the concept of solving open-ended problems and working in teams, and a "capstone project" that will be posed by industry scientists. The students will be able to interact with industry participants at various points in the program. Applicants must be current graduate students in a PhD program at a US institution during the period of the boot camp.

The Meeting is aimed at gathering experts or reseachers with an interest in global Lorentzian geometry under weak regularity assumptions on the metric. A growing number of papers is considering possible generalizations of the spacetime geometric structure. Some of these works consider affine connections which are just Lipschitz, or even metrics which are just continuous; others take inspiration from the methods of Non-regular Riemannian Geometry. Finally, some lines of research are more topological or, being quantum inspired, involve methods from non-commutative geometry. They all might provide new insights into the structure of the spacetime manifold at the metric level and beyond. Scientific Committee: Piotr T. Chruściel James Grant Michael Kunzinger Ettore Minguzzi.

The conference will be scheduled in plenary and keynote lectures followed by special and contributed sessions. The accents of the conference will be on Mathematical Physics, Solitons and Transport Processes, Numerical Methods, Scientific Computing, Continuum Mechanics, Applied Analysis, Applied Physics, Biomathematics, which can be complemented by some specific topics in contributed special sessions. You are welcomed to announce and organize special sessions that should be within the general topic of the conference.

Data exhibiting spatial point patterns arise in a broad range of applications. Types of two dimensional spatial point data are: tree locations in a forest, disease cases locations in a region and fixation locations of the retina (acquired with an eye-tracker) superimposed on an image or video observed by the subject. Such data also appear in three dimensions. Sunspot locations on the sun's surface are an example of three dimensional data on the sphere manifold. With modern technologies allowing us to acquire vast amounts of data, the number of applications and the amount of spatial data available is increasing at a rapid pace. The goal of the workshop is to gather some people working or interested by practical, computational, methodological, and/or theoretical aspects of spatial point patterns.

The Persistent Homology is a recent and immersive research area. It is a homology theory adapted in an algorithmic context to the topological data analysis. It keeps track of the homology classes that still remain "persistent" when approaching a topological space by a cloud of points. The persistent homology finds applications in all research areas that involve big datas, including medicine, chemistry, music, linguistics, sports, economics, social sciences,.... The course is intended for PhD students who have already started research in Persistent Homology, it can also inspire students at the end of their master to start their research in this area and finally it can interest senior and junior researchers for a re-conversion in another field of research. We plan to schedule 16 hours of courses, 6 hours of open discussion, 3 hours of Lab sessions, and 3 hours of research contributed talks.

The Takagi Lectures are expository lectures by the finest contemporary mathematicians. The Mathematical Society of Japan (MSJ) inaugurated the Takagi Lectures as prestigious research survey lectures. The Takagi Lectures are the first series of the MSJ official lectures in mathematics to be honored with this respected Japanese mathematician's name. The lectures are intended for a wide range of mathematicians, and are as a rule held twice a year. The Takagi Lectures bear the name of the principal creator of Class Field Theory, Professor Teiji Takagi (1875--1960). In Japan, he is also known as the founder of the Japanese School of modern mathematics. Internationally, he served as one of the first Fields Medal Committee Members in 1936 together with G.D. Birkhoff, E. Cartan, C. Carathéodory, and F. Severi. The Takagi Lectures are financially supported by the surplus from the ICM, which was held in Kyoto in 1990, with funding provided by MSJ.

The field of control theory is central to a wide range of aerospace, energy, automotive, and advanced technological systems and is increasingly recognized as fundamental for emerging fields ranging from nanotechnology, smart grid to cell regulation. Moreover, in addition to its traditional ubiquity in process regulation for the physical sciences and engineering, control concepts now pervade the biological, computer, and social sciences. This conference will showcase a wide range of topics in control and systems theory. The topics and applications include control of PDEs, computational mathematics for control and optimization, real-time optimization and data assimilation, cooperative control for unmanned autonomous vehicles, dynamic games, cellular and biological regulation, control of hybrid systems, control techniques for financial mathematics, analysis and control of biomedical systems, risk sensitive control and filtering, control of smart systems, flow control, and more.

The conference is dedicated to the sixtieth birthday of Professor Vagif S. Guliyev. The interest topics of the conference are as follows (but not limited to): Theory and Applications of All Function Spaces Related to Morrey spaces; Integral Operators on Morrey Type Spaces; Regularity in Morrey Type Spaces of Solutions to Elliptic, Parabolic, and Hypoelliptic Equations; Fixed Point Theory and Its Applications. We propose to invite all mathematicians from Turkey as well as from other countries who are currently actively working in this area and also mathematicians who work in close areas and may be interested in joining investigations on general Morrey-type spaces and applications. We also expect that qualified and young researchers from Ahi Evran University and other mathematical institutions in Turkey will be interested to participate in this workshop and will find new topics for their research, in particular new topics for PhD thesis.

The conference is organized by the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences in collaboration with the Union of the Bulgarian Mathematicians and the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics of Sofia University. The purpose of this event is to present the current state of the art in all areas of mathematics, in particular, in the following main sections: •Mathematical Logic, Algebra, and Combinatorics; •Geometry and Topology; •Analysis; •Differential Equations and Mathematical Physics; •Applied Mathematics (incl. Approximation Theory, Financial Mathematics, Numerical Mathematics, Operations Research, Probability and Statistics); •Mathematical Aspects of Computer Science; •Mathematics Education and History of the Mathematics. One of the main goals of the conference "Mathematics Days in Sofia" is to bring together Bulgarian mathematicians and computer scientists working all over the world.

The general theme of the meeting concerns various aspects of interaction of complex variables and scientific computation, including related topics from function theory, approximation theory and numerical analysis. Another important aspect of the CMFT meetings, previously held in Valparaiso 1989, Penang 1994,Nicosia 1997, Aveiro 2001 and Joensuu 2005, Ankara 2009, is to promote the creation and maintenance of contacts with scientists from diverse cultures.

The next Foundations of Computational Mathematics conference will take place at the University of Barcelona, Spain, between July 10–19, 2017. Plenary Speakers: Karim Adiprasito, Jean-David Benamou, Alexei Borodin, Mireille Bousquet-Mélou, Mark Braverman, Claudio Canuto, Martin Hairer, Pierre Lairez, Monique Laurent, Melvin Leok, Gábor Lugosi, Bruno Salvy, Sylvia Serfaty, Steve Smale, Andrew Stuart, Roman Vershynin, Shmuel Weinberger. The conference will follow a format tried and tested to a great effect in former FoCM conferences: plenary invited lectures in the mornings and theme-centered parallel workshops in the afternoons. Each workshop extends over three days and the conference will consist of three periods, comprising of different themes. We encourage the participants to attend the full conference.

The theory of dynamical systems has witnessed very significant developments in the last decades. This progress was acknowledged by the fact that the field was granted 9 lectures at ICM2014. It is also worth mentioning that most of the work of two 2014 Fields medalists, Artur Avila and Maryam Mirzakhani fits into the field of dynamical systems. The theory of dynamical systems is a very broad area, which has both pure and applied mathematics aspects. In this school, we emphasize two main of recent developments, namely those of partial hyperbolicity on one side, and rigidity, group actions and renormalization on the other side, as well as four other related areas.

McMullen's g-Conjecture from 1970 is a shining example of mathematical foresight that combined all results available at that time to conjure a complete characterization of face numbers of convex simple/simplicial polytopes. The key statement in its verification is that certain combinatorial numbers associated to geometric (or topological) objects are nonnegative. The aim of this workshop is to introduce graduate students to selected contemporary topics in geometric combinatorics with an emphasis on positivity questions. It is fascinating that the dual notions of simple and simplicial polytopes lead to different but equally powerful algebraic frameworks to treat such questions. A key feature of the lectures will be the simultaneous development of these algebraic frameworks from complementary perspectives: combinatorial-topological and convex-geometric. General concepts (such as Lefschetz elements, Hodge-Riemann-Minkowski inequalities) will be developed side-by-side, and analogies will be drawn to concepts in algebraic geometry, Fourier analysis, rigidity theory, and measure theory. This allows for entry points for students with varying backgrounds. The courses will be supplemented with guest lectures highlighting further connections to other fields.

It continues the traditional annual summer school holding from 2003. The event includes popular lectures in different topics of algebra, topology, geometry and analysis.

Infinity-operads have attracted a great deal of attention from the homotopy theory community and their potential for applications is now being explored in different fields. This workshop will give its participants the chance to learn about the existing models for infinity operads, the relation between them and some of their most recent applications. The workshop will consist of three mini-courses as well as contributed talks. The participants will be assumed to be familiar with the basic theory of ordinary operads and homotopy theory (that is basic model category theory and basic infinity-category theory).

Noncommutative Geometry (NCG) is a vivid research subject in Mathematics and Physics. The main goal of this school is to train local researchers and students in these topics and to establish strong research collaborations with colleagues, students and researchers.

Interacting particle systems are Markov chains involving infinitely many mutually interacting components. Apart from the obvious connection to statistical physics, since the conception of the field in the 1970s, interacting particle systems such as the well-known voter model and contact process have also been used to model biological populations. An alternative way of studying these biologically motivated systems is to determine the state of individuals living at a given time by tracing their ancestors, or potential ancestors, backwards in time. The collection of all (potential) ancestors with their relationships forms a random network that is called the genealogy of the interacting particle system. There is a close connection to real genealogies of biological populations and questions about the latter, such as what are the effects of population dynamic and evolutionary mechanisms on genealogical trees, continue to stimulate the development of more theoretical topics, such as the theor

Suppose you are given information on a large group of people and the social relationships between them. You would like to split them into relatively cohesive groups, such that most pairs of friends lie within groups rather than between them. Such cluster analysis problems are remarkably widespread, arising in subjects ranging from signal detection to controlling the spread of disease. How can one systematically find "good" groupings for this sort of data?

The aim of this permanent School is to introduce undergraduate and PhD students in mathematics and physics as well as post-doctoral researchers in a specific area of Mathematics and Theoretical Physics: Secondary Calculus. A diffiety is a geometrical object that properly formalizes the concept of the solution space of a given system of (nonlinear) PDEs, much as an algebraic variety does with respect to solutions of a given system of algebraic equations. Secondary Calculus is a natural diffiety analogue of the standard calculus on smooth manifolds, and as such leads to a very rich general theory of nonlinear PDEs. Moreover, it appears to be a natural language for quantum physics, just as the standard calculus is the natural language for classical physics.

The main goal of this event is to bring together young researchers and famous mathematicians in the field of group theory, graph theory, and 3-manifold theory, including knot theory. The scientific program consists of minicourses, plenary, and contributed talks. The official language of the event is English.

The purpose of the SIAM Activity Group in Algebraic Geometry is to bring together researchers who use algebraic geometry in industrial and applied mathematics. "Algebraic geometry" is interpreted broadly to include at least: algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, noncommutative algebra, symbolic and numeric computation, algebraic and geometric combinatorics, representation theory, and algebraic topology. These methods have already seen applications in: biology, coding theory, cryptography, combustion, computational geometry, computer graphics, quantum computing, control theory, geometric design, complexity theory, machine learning, nonlinear partial differential equations, optimization, robotics, and statistics. We welcome participation from both theoretical mathematical areas and application areas not on this list which fall under this broadly interpreted notion of algebraic geometry and its applications.

The conference will center around lectures by Dan Freed (UT Austin) on the interaction of topology and geometry with physics. Particular topics may include computations in stable homotopy and the classification of topological insulators, higher symmetries/gauge theories, and extended topological quantum field theories. Interested participants should apply by March 19, 2017.

Our target audience are PhD students, but advanced masters' students and young postdocs are welcome as well. The first day will consist of introductory talks to both tropical and non-archimedean geometry. The rest of the days will be filled by talks by the participants, an "open problem" session and generally lots of time for discussions.

The Alterman Summer School on Geometric Algebra and Kähler Calculus 2017 deals mainly with Clifford (geometric) algebra and the Kähler calculus based on (but not only) Clifford algebra of differential forms. Erich Kähler developed this calculus by joining Clifford's geometric algebra and CartanÂ´s exterior calculus. The Kähler calculus has immediate application to many branches of physics, especially quantum mechanics, whose foundations it affects. The Alterman events are becoming a series of periodic conferences and summer schools sponsored by Mr. Eric Alterman. Thanks to his support, fees are unexpensive (150Â€ and 50Â€ for shared lodging). Students have a reduced fee (75Â€) and free shared lodging. The contents of the lectures and the unexpensive fees provide an unusual learning opportunity. This year is the second edition. The first edition (Alterman Conference 2016) was held in Brasov (Romania).

The aim of the school is to introduce research topics in the main streams of algebraic geometry and commutative algebra to young researchers and PhD students, and encourage them to collaborate in teams leaded by well-known mathematicians. To reach this aim, an educational-research school will be organized for a period of two weeks in IASBS. After some intensive courses on special topics, participants will be divided into groups and start work and research on some proposed related problems. These collaborations will be continued after the schools. The topic of monomial ideals and algebras, as a subject of commutative algebra, homological algebra, combinatorics and geometry will be investigated from several points of view. The common point will be reaching to understand the behavior of monomials when the corresponding ideal or algebra has special properties.

The ICCA series is traditionally dedicated to the study of Clifford algebra and its applications in geometry, mathematical analysis, mathematical and theoretical physics and mechanical and electrical engineering. Over the years, it has further broadened and diversified its scope to include a.o. numerical analysis, integral transforms, signal processing, group representation theory, Lie (super)algebras,.... Moreover, Clifford algebra has shown to be a highly efficient and powerful language for tackling problems in control engineering, signal processing, robotics, geographic information systems (GIS), cosmology, virtual reality, 3D camera optics, medical imaging, and neural computation. The ICCA conferences have a strong interdisciplinary character. They aim at bringing together experts and young researchers from various fields encouraging interdisciplinary interactions.

The XXII Latin American Algebra Colloquium will be held at the Pontifical Catholic University of Ecuador (PUCE), on the university campus of Quito, from August 7-11, 2017, and will be organized by the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences of the Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences. In keeping with previous colloquiums tradition, there will be plenary lectures in the morning (schedules will be announced on the webpage).

This workshop will provide a platform for researchers working on localized kernel-based methods to present and discuss their latest developments, as well as the current theoretical and practical challenges in the field. These methods, such as radial basis function-generated finite differences (RBF-FD) or RBF-generated partition of unity methods (RBF-PUM), promise to develop into general-purpose meshless techniques for the numerical solution of partial differential equations that inherit the ease of implementation of the finite difference method, and yet potentially possess a greater ability than the finite element method to fit any geometry or adapt to singularities or other features of the solution.

The Sapporo Symposium on Partial Differential Equations has been held annually to present the latest developments on partial differential equations (PDE).

This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, hopes to further develop the use of nonstandard methods in combinatorial number theory and Ramsey theory. For example, recently nonstandard methods have proven useful in problems about configurations of sumsets in sets of positive density as well as partition regularity of equations. Our aim is to continue to explore these and other directions leading to a greater understanding of the role that nonstandard methods could play in this area of combinatorics.

The International Workshop on Operator Theory and its Applications (IWOTA) was started in 1981 to bring together mathematicians and engineers working in operator theory. Meanwhile it is the annual main event in the field. IWOTA gathers leading experts from all over the world for an intense exchange of new results and for tracing the future developments in the field. The IWOTA meetings provide opportunities for participants (including young researchers) to present their own work in invited and contributed talks and to interact with other researchers from around the globe. In addition, the IWOTA emphasizes cross-disciplinary interaction among mathematicians, electrical engineers, and mathematical physicists. The organizers of the IWOTA 2017 are Albrecht Boettcher, Daniel Potts, and Peter Stollmann. The Proceedings of the workshop will be published by Birkhauser.

Hierarchical Bayesian methods for modeling spatial and space-time data constitute an important topical area of research in the statistical sciences, with a wide range of applications. However, the explosive growth in all areas of spatial and spatio-temporal modeling has produced a massive body of literature which can impose a steep entry barrier into the field. This conference will provide a comprehensive review of Bayesian methods for spatial statistics by a highly distinguished statistician who has contributed foundational research in the field over the past twenty years, Alan E. Gelfand, J.B. Duke Professor of Statistics and Decision Sciences, Duke University. Professor Gelfand will deliver ten two-hour lectures. In addition to the lectures, three invited speakers will deliver complementary two-hour lectures. These are Sudipto Banerjee (University of CA, Los Angeles), Michele Guindani (University of CA, Irvine) and Christopher Paciorek (University of CA, Berkeley).

The workshop is devoted to problems revolving around extension of smooth functions belonging to various function spaces from subsets of a Euclidean space to the whole space.

Combinatorics is one of the fastest growing areas in contemporary Mathematics,and much of this growth is due to the connections and interactions with other areas of Mathematics. This program is devoted to the very vibrant and active area of interaction between Combinatorics with Geometry and Topology. That is, we focus on (1) the study of the combinatorial properties or structure of geometric and topological objects and (2) the development of geometric and topological techniques to answer combinatorial problems. Key examples of geometric objects with intricate combinatorial structure are point configurations and matroids, hyperplane and subspace arrangements, polytopes and polyhedra, lattices, convex bodies, and sphere packings. Examples of topology in action answering combinatorial challenges are the by now classical Lovasz's solution of the Kneser conjecture, which yielded functorial approaches to graph coloring, and the more recent, extensive topological machinery.

Geometric functional analysis lies at the interface of convex geometry, functional analysis and probability. It has numerous applications ranging from geometry of numbers and random matrices in pure mathematics to geometric tomography and signal processing in engineering and numerical optimization and learning theory in computer science. One of the directions of the program is classical convex geometry, with emphasis on connections with geometric tomography... (see website for more details).

The main aim of this conference is to contribute to the development of mathematical sciences and its applications and to bring together the members of the mathematics community, interdisciplinary researchers, educators, mathematicians, statisticians and engineers from all over the world.

Recent advances in computational resources and the development of high-throughput frameworks enable the efficient sampling of complicated multivariate functions such as energy and electronic property landscapes of inorganic, organic, biomolecular, and hybrid materials, and functional nanostructures. Combined with the recent focus on data science and the materials genome initiative, this leads to a rapidly growing need for numerical methods and a fundamental mathematical understanding of efficient sampling approaches, optimization techniques, hierarchical surrogate models and coarse graining techniques, and methods for uncertainty quantification. The goal of this long program is to bring together the scientific communities from pure and applied mathematics with computer science, materials science, chemistry, physics, and biomolecular science to advance the understanding of simulation, stochastic sampling and optimization methods for multidimensional energy landscapes.

The program opens with four days of tutorials that will provide an introduction to major themes of the entire program and the four workshops. The goal is to build a foundation for the participants of this program who have diverse scientific backgrounds. Topics that will be discussed during the tutorials include: Minimization and saddle-point methods, surrogate models, stochastic sampling and rare event simulation techniques, and genetic algorithms. Applications received by Tuesday, July 18, 2017 will receive fullest consideration.

The resolution of many of Thurston's prophetic questions about the structure of 3-manifolds has generated a vast array of techniques which permeate many of the areas covered by the symposium. As is often the case, the resolution of old conjectures has led to intriguing new questions, which will be the focus of this workshop. Examples include: given a combinatorial or arithmetic presentation of a 3-manifold, describe its geometric structure concretely ("effective geometrisation"); understand the geometry of the Thurston unit norm ball, for example how it behaves under taking towers of covers; understand the connection between Heegard-Floer homology and orderability of fundamental groups. Several old conjectures, such as the simple loop conjecture for surfaces in three-manifolds and the conjecture that a quasifuchsian group is determined by its pleating laminations, continue to motivate work.

An inverse problem denotes the task of computing an unknown physical quantity from indirect measurements. The corresponding forward problem maps the physical quantity to the measurements. In most realistic situations the solution of the inverse problem is challenging, complicated by incomplete and noisy measurements, as well as noninvertible forward operators which render the inverse problem ill-posed (that is lack of stability and/or uniqueness of solutions). Inverse problems appear in many practical applications in biology, medicine, weather forecasting, chemistry, engineering, physics, to name but a few, and their analysis and solution presents considerable challenges in mathematics and statistics.

The aim of the conference is to present the most recent aspects of today's research in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics and of their interconnections through the talks by some of the most known and active international researchers. There will also be two public lectures by Giorgio Vallortigara and Paolo de Bernardis, intended to attract a broader audience towards mathematics, physics, and related subjects.

Parametric optimization is a part of mathematical programming and has emerged as an exciting research area in theory, numerics and applications.

In past decades, considerable effort has been devoted to first-principles modeling of materials and materials design. However, uncertainty quantification over multiple scales, especially when some of them are inherently stochastic, is not sufficiently understood despite having critical impact on guiding experimental efforts and design. The uncertainty in materials modeling and design can arise either from the stochastic nature of microscopic description, sampling and numerical errors or from improper modeling assumptions, inadequate or inaccurate parametrization of the system and/or the objective functionals that guide the design optimization. The methods for quantifying the impact of such errors and uncertainties have been recently studied in different communities, including computational quantum chemistry, materials engineering, and mathematics. Applications received by Monday, September 18, 2017 will receive fullest consideration.
