When it comes to music-related events and conferences, St. Louis is a great place to explore. From Chamber Music America to the Control Theory & Inverse Problems Conference, there are plenty of opportunities to learn and network with other music professionals. Chamber Music America (CMA) is a great resource for those looking to develop their skills in the field of chamber music.
CMA offers grant programs, professional development services, publications, networking events, an annual conference and more. The objective of this program is to promote the development of new tools and mathematical formalisms that allow a new generation of ultra-scalable algorithms for a wide range of applications in computational materials science. The Control Theory & Inverse Problems Conference is another great event for those interested in harnessing the potential of future exascale architectures through new mathematical approaches. This conference will witness a wide range of technical papers such as oral presentations, as well as plenary sessions on different disciplines from around the world.
Topics of interest will include strategies for scalable single-scale simulations, new massively parallel scale-bridge algorithms, and the integration of extreme scale computing into experimental and data science workflows. The Optimal Transport Workshop is another great event for those interested in mathematics, statistics, machine learning and computing. This workshop will focus on the intersection of these fields from the point of view of optimal transport (OT). Mathematical topics will include low-dimensional models for OT, OT linealizations and OT geometry, including gradient flows and gradient descent in measurement space.
Relevant statistical topics will include the reliable and efficient estimation of OT plans in large dimensions, the role of regularization in the calculation of distances and OT plans, with applications to solid statistics, the quantification of uncertainty and overparameterized machine learning. Computing will be a recurring theme of the workshop, with an emphasis on the development of rapid algorithms and applications to computational biology, high-energy physics, materials science, space-time modeling, natural language processing and image processing. The Shanks Conference is another great event for those interested in mathematics. This conference will celebrate the work of Gunnar Carlsson, Ralph Cohen and Steve Kerckhoff.
It will feature talks on homotopy theory and low-dimensional topology. The conference will celebrate the 70th anniversary of one of the most cited and world-renowned authors on the topic of the conference, Professor Steven Krantz from the University of Washington in St. Louis. Krantz was the editor-in-chief of Notices at the AMS.
In addition to elliptical and parabolic issues, the topics of the conference include geometric inequalities, optimal control, functions of measurement space, evolutionary problems in general and calculation of variations. In addition to plenary talks, poster sessions will be organized. The Knot Theory Workshop is another great event for those interested in mathematics. Despite their omnipresence and importance, a number of questions about knots remain unresolved.
To address them, techniques from a variety of mathematical disciplines are required at the interface between low-dimensional algebra, analysis, geometry, modeling and topology. Some of the most interesting recent research avenues include optimization of geometry, invariants of quantum knots and applications in material sciences, physics and molecular biology. This workshop emphasizes bridging the gap between theoretical, computational and experimental approaches to knot theory and its applications including artificial intelligence. The Commutative Algebra Summer Graduate School is another great event for those interested in mathematics.
This summer graduate school will consist of three short courses (5 lectures each) on fundamental topics in commutative algebra that are not covered in standard courses. The Wolfram Language Webinar Series is another great event for those interested in mathematics. This series of free online webinars is designed to help students and graduate researchers get the most out of Mathematica and Wolfram Language for advanced studies and research in mathematics. The topics covered include functionality of special functions, differential equations, number theory, linear algebra, graph theory, combinatorics, asymptotics probability and differential geometry. The Distributed Ledger Technology Workshop is another great event for those interested in technology related to distributed accounting technology and its adoption in business and research scenarios.
The main objective is to encourage debate and cross-fertilization between experts in different fields related to DLT with a special focus on privacy and security issues. The Random Fields & Percolation Theory Mini-School is another great event for those interested in mathematics. This mini-school aims to show recent advances in random fields & percolation theory with an emphasis on unmodifiable spaces & graphic sequences. The Nonlinear Evolution & Geometric Aspects Conference is another great event for those interested in mathematics related to equations of nonlinear evolution & geometric aspects. The SIAM Optimization Activities Group Meeting is another great event for those interested in mathematics related to solving open problems related to optimization. Finally, there's also the Combinatorial Problems About Infinite Cardinals Workshop which is sponsored by AIM & NSF dedicated to solving open problems related to infinite cardinals.
