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 Ph.D. 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: one "baby project" designed to introduce the concept of solving open-ended problems and on working in teams, and one "capstone project" which will be posed by industry scientists. The students will be able to interact with industry participants at various points in the program.

The conference is intented to cover all classical and contemporary aspects of the foliation theory with topics influencing and influenced by foliations. These include foliations and laminations of 3-mainifolds, geometric structures (Riemannian, holomorphic, symplectic, contact, confoliations, Engel), 1- and multidimensional dynamics, group actions, holonomy groups and pseudogroups, extrinsic and conformal geometry of foliated Riemannian manifolds, rigidity, characteristic classes etc. Invited speakers: Julliette Bavard (UPMC), Jonathan Bowden (LMU), Steven Frankel (Yale), Sebastian Hurtado (Chicago), Remi Langevin (Dijon),Olga Lukina (UIC),Kathryn Mann (Berkeley), Hirokazu Maruhashi (Kyoto),Emmanuel Militon (Nice), Andres Navas (Santiago de Chile), Daniel Peralta (ICMAT Madrid), Joaquin Perez (Granada). The conference is a satellite of the 7ECM.

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.

The goal of this international cross-disciplinary conference is to enable the exchange of methods and ideas as well as the exploration of fundamental research problems in the wide fields of knot theory and low-dimensional topology, from theoretical to applications in the sciences such as biology and physics, and to provide high quality interactions across fields and generations of researchers, from graduate students to the most senior researchers. Graduate students and new PhD's working in these fields are especially encouraged to participate.

The workshop is focussed on the modern aspects of optimisation that involve deep interplay between computational problems and pure mathematical questions. 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

Ab initio or first principle electronic structure theories, particularly represented by Kohn-Sham density functional theory (KS-DFT), have been developed into workhorse tools with a wide range of scientific applications in chemistry, physics, materials science, biology etc. What is needed are new techniques that greatly extend the applicability and versatility of these approaches. At the core, many of the challenges that need to be addressed are essentially mathematical. 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.

Distance in Graph 2016 (DiGUbud) is a satellite conference of the Asian Mathematical Conference 2016 which will be held from 18 to 22 July 2016 in Ubud, Bali.

The plenary speakers in DiGUbud are: Sandi KlavÂžar (University of Ljubljana, Slovenia) Jan Kratochv\'il (Charles University, Czech Republic) Camino Balbuena Martinez (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain)

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.

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. The aim of this school is to introduce participants to the ubiquity of lattices in number theory, algebra, arithmetic algebraic geometry, cryptography and coding theory.

Appearances of lattices that we intend to cover include: The natural lattices structures of Mordell-Weil groups and unit groups. Lie algebra root lattices. The lattice basis reduction algorithm "LLL", which as many applications to many areas of mathematics and finally the construction of the famous Leech lattice. On the applied side we plan to cover constructions of good error-correcting codes and of good sphere packings via dense lattices.

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 main goal of this conference is to bring together experts and young talented scientists from all over the world to discuss the modern and recent aspects of the mathematical analysis. It is also to ensure exchange of ideas in various applications of Mathematics in Engineering, Physics, Economics, Biology, etc.

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.

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. Many applications require the use of surface descriptions, especially in such fields as computer aided design and manufacturing, isogeometric analysis, computer graphics, computer vision and computer animation. The description of surfaces is also of interest in geographic information systems, multimedia, and many other areas of science and medicine.

The sections of the conference are: 1. Real, Complex, Functional and Numerical Analysis 2. Partial Differential Equations with applications in Mechanics, Biology, etc. 3. Ordinary Differential Equations; Dynamical Systems 4. Probability Theory, Mathematical Statistics, Operation Research 5. Algebra, Logic, Geometry (with applications) 6. Mathematical Modeling 7.

In 1999 the conference of this series was dedicated to the memory of J.P. Schauder who was born in Lviv in 1899 and lived in this city all his life. In 2002 the International Conference on Functional Analysis and Applications was dedicated to the 110th anniversary of Stefan Banach, professor of Lviv University during 1924 -1945 years. The name of Yaroslav Lopatynsky is well known all over the world as a great specialist in the theory of PDE. In his famous work of 1953 he established the condition of well-possedness of general boundary value problems for elliptic systems of PDE.

Confirmed speakers: Anthony Phillips (SUNY at Stony Brook) on sound and topology, Ivan Selesnick (NYU) on nonlinear filters using sparse signal models, Ofer Tchernichovski(Hunter College, CUNY) on graphical methods of visualizing the temporal dynamics of birdsong learning, and Ankit Parker (NYU) on detection of sleep spindles in EEG signals.

This workshop will set the stage and define research directions for the rest of the program. The idea is to achieve a healthy mix of mathematicians, computer scientists, physicists, and chemists and establish common grounds that will enable rational applications of machine learning techniques to many-particle problems. One prominent outcome of this workshop will be the establishment of a common repository of datasets corresponding to different many-particle problems (structures and energies of molecules and materials, protein structures and dynamics, spectroscopic signatures of complex systems, etc.). These datasets can be used to assess the performance of different ML techniques during the IPAM program and beyond.

This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to the structural theory of discrete amenable groups, and new examples of amenable and non-amenable groups.

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.

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 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.
