2018 Summer Workshop on Optimization, Differential Equations, and Image Analysis

August 16 - 17, 2018 @ UC San Diego

Important dates
  • Workshop: August 16 - 17, 2018
  • Registration deadline: TBA
  • AP&M Room 2402

This workshop will feature a series of expository talks by UCSD postdocs and faculty on the fundamentals of optimization, differential equations, quantitative image processing, and genomic data analysis. Topics will include the formulation of advanced optimization algorithms, numerical methods for solving differential equations, differential-equation-based image analysis, and data analysis. The workshop is intended for both undergraduate and graduate students. Funding is available for travel and lodging. Under-represented minorities and women are particularly encouraged to register for the workshop. There are no registrations fees for this workshop.

Funding is available for travel and lodging, with priority given to undergraduate students from under-represented groups. Applications for funding should be directed to James Ferris.
