AMS Conferences and Workshops on above disciplines should be alerted.

A program of the AMS funded principally by the National Science Foundation, Mathematics Research Communities foster the formation of self-sustaining cohorts of early-career mathematical scientists by supporting summer conferences, collaboration grants, and special sessions at the Joint Mathematics Meetings focused around research topics of common interest. In 2016 the summer conferences are: June 5--11, (a) Lie Group Representations, Discretization, and Gelfand Pairs and (2) Character Varieties-Experiments and New Frontiers; June 12--18, Algebraic Statistics; and June 19--25, Mathematics in Physiology and Medicine. The 2016 program is aimed at mathematicians whose career stage is between two years pre-PhD and three years post-PhD, with interest in one of these areas, and whose background makes them ready to engage in hands-on collaborative research under the mentorship of experts in the respective fields. Applications are open through March 1, 2016, on the program web site.

The programme would start with a week long tutorial on the basics of empirical likelihood and its applications. There will be two workshops on the second and the third weeks. The first workshop would explore various aspects of the new developments in the core empirical likelihood methodology. It would concentrate more on the theoretical side. As for example, we would discuss asymptotic behaviour of empirical likelihood under various levels of dependence, its behaviour in high dimensions, in various constrained problems, theoretical aspects of Bayesian empirical likelihood, etc. The second workshop will mostly be on the applications of empirical likelihood in real life problems. The topics would include the applications in biostatistics, survival analysis, in the analysis of complex survey data, longitudinal data, finance and econometrics among others. The fourth week is kept free for research interactions. Most of it would be spent in informal discussions.

Recent advances in complex differential geometry is a two-week program covering a wide range of topics in both Kähler and non-Kähler geometry and is part of the CIMI thematic trimester Complex Geometry and Beyond. Lectures and seminars will take place at the Institut de Mathématique de Toulouse (Toulouse, France). Week 1, from Monday June 13th 2016 to Friday June 17th 2016 is a a summer school. Week 2, from Friday June 17th 2016 to Wednesday June 22nd 2016 is an international conference. Details are available on the website of the conference.

Combinatorics is at the center of many areas in pure and applied mathematics. This summer school will focus on the versatility of combinatorics to shed light on problems in algebra, geometry, optimization, and mathematical physics. We will also discuss how algebraic and geometric perspectives can help us understand purely combinatorial objects. The main goal of the school is to bring young mathematicians from Colombia and other Latin American countries into close contact with each other and with world experts in various fields of combinatorics. This is part of a long term goal to build a strong regional community of mathematicians in combinatorics and related fields.

The goal of the workshop is to present harmonic analysis techniques in $R^n$ (the "flat" setting), and then to show how those techniques extend to much rougher settings, with application to the theory of elliptic equations. Thus, the subject matter of the workshop will introduce the students to an active, current research area: the interface between harmonic analysis, elliptic PDE, and geometric measure theory.

This summer school on random matrices is motivated by the observation that there are several (often) non-overlapping techniques used in random matrix theory. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for graduate students (and postdocs) to learn these different techniques and acquire the background necessary to understand how/when/where they can/have/should be applied for understanding the properties of random matrices. We expect students to have some basic working knowledge on random matrix theory (e.g., they know what a GOE ensemble is and what the semi-circle law describes.) We hope that the summer school provides a venue where, for example, a student already familiar with the orthogonal polynomial method for RMT can learn about how Stieltjes transform techniques are used, and so on. We have asked the lecturers to make each course self-contained and cover the necessary basic materials at the level of a first and second year graduate school student.

THE GOAL of NUMTA2016 Conference is to create a multidisciplinary round table for an open discussion on numerical modeling by using traditional and emerging computational paradigms.

The CRM "Partial Order in Materials: Analysis, Simulations and Beyond" workshop will comprise two 4-day focussed research meetings, from 20th-23rd June 2016 and 27th-30th June 2016, on partially ordered materials and complex fluids respectively, as part of the CRM thematic program on Computational Mathematics and Applications. The organizers are Dr Apala Majumdar (University of Bath, United Kingdom), Professor Stanley Alama (McMaster University), Professor Lia Bronsard (McMaster University) and Professor Alejandro Rey (McGill University). This workshop focuses on the mathematical modelling, analysis and simulations of partially ordered materials, somewhere in between the conventional solid and liquid phases of matter. Partial order is ubiquitous in nature and some key examples include liquid crystals, superconductors and complex fluids, glassy matter, colloidal suspensions, examples in the living world such as the cell cytoskeleton, bacterial suspensions and inanimate examples

This school is oriented to the presentation of theory, algorithms and applications for the solution of mixed integer nonlinear problems (MINLP). This type of problems appears in numerous application areas where the modelization of nonlinear phenomena with logical constraints is important; we must remember here the memorable phrase "the world is nonlinear". Nowadays the theoretical aspects of this area are spread in a number of recent papers which makes it difficult, for non-specialist, to have a solid background of the existing results and new advances in the field. This school aims to organize and present this material in an organized way. Moreover, it also pursues to link theory with actual applications.

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.

SIDE is a summer school for ECRs in the field of symmetries and integrability of difference equations preceding the international conference in the same field: SIDE. The first edition of the school was held just before SIDE 10 (2012, China). The breadth of the field of discrete integrable systems continually deepens as new research discovers myriad relationships between it and a spectrum of different areas of mathematics. As such, it takes years to properly appreciate all of the ideas presented at SIDE meetings. ASIDE acts to fast-track this development and equip ECR's with a basic understanding of the fundamental aspects of the field so that it is within their compass to comprehend the bulk of the presentations at the following SIDE conference.

A special session on Integrable Systems and Geometry will take place as part of the XXXVth Workshop on Geometric Methods in Physics, Bialowieza, Poland, June 26 - July 2, 2016. There will be a follow-up summer School on Physics and Geometry, July 4 - July 9, 2016. See wgmp.uwb.edu.pl. Areas of interest at the Workshop range from algebraic geometry to representations of infinite-dimensional Lie groups to symplectic Poisson and noncommutative geometry. Plenary speakers include E. Previato, C. Roger, C. Tracy, and V. Zakharov. Session organizers are: Gerald Goldin, Alexander Odesski, Emma Previato, Ekaterina Shemyakova, and Theodore Voronov.

"Geometric and combinatorial methods in number theory" is an international conference covering topics in Diophantine and Arakelov geometries, number theory, Galois theory with emphasis on explicit/combinatorial methods. It is intended to include special sessions for young researchers (PhD students and postdocs).

ASIDE is a summer school for ECRs (early career researchers) in the field of symmetries and integrability of difference equations preceding the international conference on the same subject: SIDE. The first edition of the school was held just before SIDE 10 (2012, China). The field of discrete integrable systems is rapidly expanding and new relationships between it and different areas of mathematics are being established. This makes it difficult for novices in the field to properly appreciate all of the ideas presented at SIDE meetings. The purpose of ASIDE is to fast-track this development and equip ECR's with a basic understanding of the fundamental aspects of the field and to prepare them for full participation in the SIDE meetings.

Starting from the state of art, the school aims at promoting new directions in sharp limiting inequalities of Trudinger-Moser types and applications to problems arising from geometry and physics. Professors Hajer Bahouri, Sun-Yung Alice Chang and Gabriella Tarantello will present three courses focusing on this topic, along with additional talks given by some of the participants, as well as a poster session. These supplementary research activities will complement the main courses and motivate further discussion among participants. Students, post-docs and other young researchers will have the opportunity to get up to date with new research advances, or to enter this fascinating field of research. \mchead{Deadline For applications} November 30, 2015.

This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to recent developments in representation stability. Among these developments are results on algebraic and combinatorial aspects of functor categories and stable representation categories, and the use of "large" algebraic structures on limit objects to obtain finiteness results.

Research and outreach are normally thought to divide mathematics in two. This separation is, however, completely artificial; it is impossible to "find" a mathematical idea without explaining it. Exploration and exposition are two sides of the same coin. One striking example of this is the epochal work of William Thurston; often his theorems were accompanied by pictures, and computer programs, illustrating the underlying ideas. The goal of this conference is to bring together mathematicians from a range of fields, and practitioners from the digital arts (animation, 3D printing, laser cutting, CNC routing, virtual reality, computer games, etc). The attendees will share their expertise in mathematics and with the procedural tools used to illustrate mathematics. In addition to talks in the traditional style, we plan to hold several workshops to train attendees about a variety of digital media, in particular 3D printing.

The purpose of this conference series is to bring together researchers and practitioners with an interest in the theoretical, computational, and applied aspects of high-order and spectral methods for the solution of differential equations.

This conference aims at bringing together the communities of probabilists, statistical physicists, approximation theorists, and analysts, who work with different points of view on issues of optimal and random point configurations such as Fekete sets, Coulomb gases, point processes arising in random matrices, and crystallization questions. Particular attention will be given to the lectures being accessible to young researchers and a poster session will be organized.

Third 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 (www.math.bas.bg/ntades/). 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 plenary, 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; Fractional Analysis; Neuroscience. The proceedings will be published in peer reviewed journal.

The goal of the 2016 CRM Summer School in Quebec City is to prepare students for research involving spectral theory. The school will give an overview of a selection of topics from spectral theory, interpreted in a broad sense. It will cover topics from pure and applied mathematics, each of which will be presented in a 5-hour mini-course by a leading expert. These lectures will be complemented by supervised computer labs and exercise sessions. At the end of the school, invited speakers will give specialized talks. This rich subject intertwines several sub-disciplines of mathematics, and it will be especially beneficial to students. The subject is also very timely, as spectral theory is witnessing major progresses both in its mathematical sub-disciplines and in its applications to technology and science in general. The school is intended to advanced undergraduate students. As such, the prerequisites will be kept at a minimum, and review material will be provided a few weeks before the e

In the twenty-first century, modelling is a crucial research tool for studying complex phenomena and processes. Our impressive line up of speakers, including Professor Hugh Possingham, Professor Kerry Landman, Professor Graeme Pettet, Professor James Sneyd and Dr Eve McDonald-Madden will build your knowledge of models, algorithms, and theoretical analysis tools, and bring you up to speed on a range of topical applications, from molecular biology through to ecosystems analysis. Hosted by the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, the AMSI Winter School is designed for postgraduate students and ECRs in the mathematical sciences and cognate disciplines, this year specifically in biological or environmental modelling, are of course encouraged to attend: however, the school is a great opportunity for those working in other areas of the mathematical sciences to strengthen their mathematical tool-kit.

This is a follow-up to two separate schools which were held at ICTP in 2011 and 2013. Both of them in the broad area of Dynamical Systems, the first was essentially a Brazilian-Iranian school and the second a joint ICTP-SISSA-Moscow school. The school will cover some topics in Dynamical Systems and Control Theory from various inter-related perspectives. In particular it will highlight the connections between the study of Dynamical Systems from an algebraic, a geometrical and a probabilistic (ergodic) point of view.

The proposed school is the next one in a series of schools organized under the East African Universities Mathematics Programme (EAUMP), which started in 2004.

Even today, in 2016, mathematics rules "behind the scenes": technologies and strategies with a lot of "Math Inside" influence everyday life and allow progress - visible in architecture and in the cinema, often unnoticed in the financial and telecommunications industries, and also in the life sciences and in transport, logistics and traffic. What can mathematics achieve today, which would have still seemed like science fiction 2^5=32 years ago? What can we expect and hope for in 2^5 years = 32 years - and which visions do the experts have for the year 2^11 = 2048?

We are pleased to announce that a conference FOLIATIONS 2016 will held in Bedlewo (Poland) during the period July 11-17, 2016. Our aim is to exchange scientific information about most recent results on foliations and related topics. Theory of foliations can be considered as geometric theory of integrable systems of partial differential systems (on manifolds). It has several aspects: topological, geometrical, dynamical etc. All the aspects are supposed to be covered by the lecturers. Some of the problems are related to those for nonintegrable systems (contact and symplectic structures, confoliations, Engel and Goursat structures and so on), therefore some talks will deal with non-integrable systems. Also, several properties of foliations are reflected by their holonomy groups and pseudogroups, some of the talks will be devoted to group (and pseudogroup) actions on manifolds.

The Summer School in Probability, to be held in July 2016, at Northwestern University, will include six introductory mini-courses on various topics within probability, aimed at graduate students and recent PhDs.

The core of this 6-month programme is understanding and quantifying mathematical structure in network models. Networks are ubiquitous in modern science and society. In fact, whenever we observe entities and relationships between them, we have network data. The behaviour of almost all networks, natural or engineered, physical or information-based, involves a strong component of randomness and is typically not fully or directly observed. Considerable open challenges remain in proving properties both of generative mechanisms for such networks, as well as of methods for inference. This motivates the development of theoretical foundations for statistical network analysis. Several workshops will take place during the programme, including an opening, midterm and closing workshop, as well as a Satellite Meeting and an Open for Business industry day. For full details please see website.

We especially encourage students and early career researchers to participate in this workshop. Organisers can be contacted at modu2016@rmit.edu.au.

The summer school is aimed at graduate students and postdocs, although all are welcome. It is being sponsored by the Pacific Institute of Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) Collaborative Research Group (CRG) in Applied, Algebraic, and Geometric Topology. The goal is for participants to learn about the classification of manifolds, up to homeomorphism and diffeomorphism within a fixed homotopy type, using the technique of surgery. This technique uses the close relations between algebraic and geometric topology, passing between homology and homotopy groups via the Hurewicz theorem and between handles in a manifold and cells in a CW complex through Morse theory. The classification techniques are most effective for manifolds of dimension four or greater, although there are be applications to and interactions with low-dimensional topology. This mathematics interacts with algebraic topology, geometric topology, differential topology, geometric group theory, and geometric functional analysis

The purpose of the workshop is to provide graduate students a self-contained introduction to electronic structure theory, with particular emphasis on frontier topics in aspects of applied analysis and numerical methods.

Topic: The Constraint Manifold of General Relativity Abstract: The global study of the space of solutions of the Einstein constraint equations goes back to work of Jerry Marsden and co-workers in the early 1970s. Since that time the subject has evolved in interesting ways. First it has been possible to localize the deformation theory in certain cases to deform solutions inside a chosen region without changing them outside. A second issue which arises in the deformation theory is a derivative loss problem which occurs when one attempts to place a manifold structure on the constraint space of solutions with a finite degree of differentiability. In this general lecture we will give an overview of these issues and developments.

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 7th edition of the ATMCS conference series will take place 25-29 July 2016 in Torino, Italy. Applied and computational topology refers to the adaptation of classical topological theory and techniques to other fields of science and engineering. A key goal in the conference series is the further development of topological techniques for use in applications and the creation of new areas of applications in the subject. ATMCS is a biennial conference series on algebraic topology with an important focus on its role in computer science and applications. The 1st edition was held in 2001 at Stanford University in California, USA, with subsequent editions held at international, transatlantic institutions.

Tropical geometry uses a combination of techniques from algebraic geometry, combinatorics, and convex polyhedral geometry to study degenerations of algebraic varieties; the simplest tropical objects are tropical curves, which one can think of as "shadows" of algebraic curves. Linear equivalence of divisors on an abstract tropical curve is determined by a simple but rich combinatorial process called "chip firing", which was discovered independently in the discrete setting by physicists and graph theorists. From a pedagogical point of view, one can view tropical curves as a combinatorial model for the highly analogous but more abstract theory of algebraic curves, but there is in fact much more to the story than this: one can use tropical curves and chip firing to prove theorems in algebraic geometry and number theory. This field is relatively new, so participants will have the opportunity to start from scratch and still get a glimpse of the cutting edge in this active research area.

We announce an exciting interdisciplinary workshop as part of a month long research program on causal inference in genetics. Many of the recent breakthroughs in high-dimensional statistics have been driven by problems in genetics, especially by the difficulties associated with inference where the number of covariates (such as SNPs) massively exceeds the number of individual samples. Significant progress towards attacking such problems has been achieved in recent years through methods based on regularization, sparsity, and control of false discovery rates.

Deep neural networks that learn to represent data in multiple layers of increasing abstraction have dramatically improved the state-of-the-art for speech recognition, object recognition, object detection, predicting the activity of drug molecules, and many other tasks. Deep learning discovers intricate structure in large datasets by building distributed representations, either via supervised, unsupervised or reinforcement learning. This summer schools is aimed at graduate students and industrial engineers and researchers who already have some basic knowledge of machine learning (and possibly but not necessarily of deep learning) and wish to learn more about this rapidly growing field of research.

This event comprises two parts, a Clifford Algebra (CA) Conference, and a summer school that promotes the Kaehler calculus (KC). This calculus is based on CA of differential forms and generalizes Cartan's calculus. It has direct application to relativistic quantum mechanics (QM) by replacing Dirac's equation with one for scalar-valued differential forms. Spinors then emerge as solutions with symmetry, antiparticles surge with the same sign of energy as particles, and operators are concomitants of processes rather than ad hoc creations. We shall deal with applications to mathematical analysis, like the replacing of Hodge's theorem with actual integration of the differential system that specifies Kaehler's exterior and interior derivatives (read curl and divergence). We shall also deal with an additional generalization to Clifford valued differential forms. It takes us beyond Dirac type environments into one that seems appropriate for high energy physics and QM foundations.

Lattices play a central role in number theory and its applications.

Moduli spaces and enumerative geometry are important classical topics of algebraic geometry. In recent decades they have received important new input from theoretical physics, among others with the advent of mirror symmetry, which made surprising predictions for classical problems of enumerative geometry. Mirror symmetry has since developed further and is a subject of intensive study. Many new powerful concepts, tools and techniques have been developed in recent years, in part in order to understand these predictions. These include moduli spaces of maps and Gromov-Witten invariants, virtual fundamental classes, Donaldson-Thomas and Pandharipande-Thomas invariants, stability conditions on derived categories and their moduli spaces. In this school we will introduce the participants to this important and fascinating subject and its powerful techniques. The topics of the school include Derived categories, Stability conditions on derived categories and applications to birational geometry.

The field of geometric of geometric group theory emerged from Gromov's insight that even mathematical objects such as groups, which are defined completely in algebraic terms, can be profitably viewed as geometric objects and studied with geometric techniques Contemporary geometric group theory has broadened its scope considerably, but retains this basic philosophy of reformulating in geometric terms problems from diverse areas of mathematics and then solving them with a variety of tools. The growing list of areas where this general approach has been successful includes low-dimensional topology, the theory of manifolds, algebraic topology, complex dynamics, combinatorial group theory, algebra, logic, the study of various classical families of groups, Riemannian geometry and representation theory. The goals of this MSRI program are to bring together people from the various branches of the field in order to consolidate recent progress, chart new directions, and train the next generation of geometric group theorists.

A consistent geometric theory of nonlinear PDEs can obtained by using jet bundles and their natural structures. In particular, second-order nonlinear PDEs correspond to hypersurfaces in the Lagrangian Grassmannian. Lagrangian Grassmannians are interesting manifolds on their own, independently on their relationship with nonlinear PDEs: they display a rich intrinsic geometry, and their hypersurfaces can be studied through old and recent methods coming from unexpectedly distant areas. There are important open problems concerning nonlinear PDEs, like those of obtaining (partial) classifications, or proving (non) equivalence theorems, which will clearly benefit from an appropriate geometric reformulation, not necessarily based on jet spaces or contact manifolds. An important class of nonlinear PDEs is that of integrable systems. In spite of their importance, is not yet clear what is the correct, general and intrinsic geometric counterpart to the notion of integrability.

In the past decade, progress on zero-error quantum information has not only strengthened the existing links with graph theory, but has also uncovered new and unexpected connections with operator algebras and optimisation. This has led to the formation of a new area on the crossroad of quantum computing, combinatorics, operator theory and mathematical programming. The purpose of the School is to introduce PhD students and young researchers to both its methods and problems, discussing topics such as zero-error capacities, graph entropy, quantum graph parameters, games for quantum players, quantum correlations, conic optimisation and communication complexity. The three main lecture courses are: \* Graphs and information theory, by Andreas Winter, \* Non-commutative order in quantum games, by Vern Paulsen \* Optimisation methods in quantum information theory, by Monique Laurent and Jop Bri\"et For information on attendance please visit www.qciao.org

The aim of this workshop is cover various aspects of the theory of branched surfaces, laminations and their geometric applications.

Description Many natural mathematical concepts cannot be expressed in first-order logic but need stronger logics. Among such concepts are the freeness of a group, separability of a space, completeness of an order, etc. By a strong logic we mean model-theoretically defined extensions of first-order logic, such as first-order logic with generalized quantifiers, infinitary logics, second-order logic, as well as higher-order logics. The study of strong logics runs immediately into questions that depend essentially on set-theoretical assumptions beyond the standard ZFC axioms, such as infinitary combinatorial principles and the existence of large cardinals. It is therefore crucial to be able to pinpoint the position of a given strong logic in the set-theoretical definability hierarchy, thus helping us understand better the set-theoretical nature of the logic, and therefore of the mathematical notions it can express.

Interactions between many constituent particles (bodies) generally give rise to collective or emergent phenomena in matter. Even when the interactions between the particles are well defined and the governing equations of the system are understood, the collective behavior of the system as a whole does not trivially emerge from these equations. Examples of collective behavior are abundant in nature, manifesting themselves at all scales of matter, ranging from atoms to galaxies. Machine learning methods have been used in a wide variety of fields. It is the goal of this IPAM long program to bring together experts in many particle problems in condensed-matter physics, materials, chemistry, and protein folding, together with experts in mathematics and computer science to synergetically address the problem of tackling emergent behavior and understanding the underlying collective variables in many particle systems.

Computer-based methods for the capture, construction, representation, fitting, interrogation and manipulation of complicated surfaces have led to a wide interest in, and need for, the mathematics of surfaces and related topics including curves, motions and computational geometry.

The application of machine learning (ML) to the computer simulation of materials has features that are somewhat uncommon in ML: the data is often free of noise, in principle unlimited amounts of data are available at known unit cost, and there is often considerable freedom in choosing data locations. This calls for the close examination of which ML strategies are best, and what their ultimate limitations are in practice. Can we create ML models of arbitrary accuracy? How can recent advances in on-line or active learning be utilized? What can more classical statistical interpolation methods contribute? This workshop will broadly address the reaches and limitations of ML as applied to the modeling of physical systems and highlight examples where physical models can be successfully combined or even derived from ML algorithms. The application deadline is Monday, October 10, 2016.

How can recent advances in online or active learning be utilised? What can more classical statistical interpolation methods contribute? Traditional, non-data-intensive models in the physical sciences are "extrapolative"; i.e., the parameters are determined by observing limited data in some domain, and the models are tested in extended or even wholly different domains, and the performance of such models is evaluated according to how well they do in such a situation.
