Isaac Newton Institute Satellite Workshop: Future Directions in Network Mathematics
Organisers: Mohamed Ali Belabbas (U. Illinois, USA), Sofia Olhede (UCL, UK), Patrick Wolfe (UCL, UK)
November 21st and 22nd, The Royal Society, Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AG
This event is the Satellite Workshop for the 6-month Isaac Newton Programme in Statistical Network Analysis, taking place in Cambridge, UK.
Event summary: A deep understanding of graphs and networks takes inspiration from many different branches of mathematics, ranging from discrete mathematics, spectral methods and optimization through to geometry and topology. This workshop aims to bring various of these areas together in order both to interface with mathematical statistics, and to anticipate rich future areas of cross-fertilisation. Each of the topics over 2 days will consist of an introductory overview lecture followed by 2-3 more specialised talks which will nevertheless be accessible to a general mathematics audience. Plenty of time will be left for convivial scientific discussion amongst the attendees over the two days of the workshop.
Special sessions include:
- Distributed optimization and control of networks
- Topology and networks
- Random Matrices and Graphs
Speakers confirmed so far include:
- Matthew Kahle (Ohio State, USA)
- Pawel Dlotko (Inria, France)
- Yuliy Baryshnikov (U. Illinois, USA)
- Steve Morse (Yale, USA)
- Angelia Nedich (U. Illinois, USA)
- Anders Rantzer (Lund University, Sweden)
- Julien Hendrickx (UC Louvain, Belgium)
