Mathematical aspects of big data: a joint meeting of the LMS and the EMS


  • 10 December - 11 December 2015
  • Edinburgh, UK
  • Organiser: London and the Edinburgh Mathematical Societies
  • Event Details

This joint meeting of the London and the Edinburgh Mathematical Societies marks the end of the 150th anniversary celebrations of the former.

The mathematical aspects of the analysis of big data cut across pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics. The invited speakers at this workshop will include a broad range of international experts in mathematics, statistics, and computer science, whose research covers fields that are inspired by, or have applications to, big data analysis.

The workshop is aimed at an audience of general mathematicians but is open to all and attendance is free of charge. It will cover current trends and developments, and will hopefully enable participants to discover or imagine new connections between their own research and this rapidly growing subject.

Confirmed speakers:
Jacek Brodzki, University of Southampton
Coralia Cartis, University of Oxford
Ronald Coifman, Yale University
Ilias Diakonikolas, University of Edinburgh
Colin McDiarmid, University of Oxford
Sofia Olhede, University College London
Igor Rivin, University of St Andrews
Marian Scott, University of Glasgow
Eva Tardos, Cornell University
