  •  13 Jun 2017 - 23 Jun 2017
     8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Organisers: Tiangang Cui (Monash University), Hans De Sterck (Monash University), Markus Hegland (Australian National University), Youssef Marzouk (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Ian Turner (Queensland University of Technology), Karen Willcox (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)

Program Description:
This program aims to address open challenges and recent advancements in computational inverse problems. The program will cover a wide range of relevant topics including deterministic and statistical inverse problems, Bayesian analysis, computational statistics (e.g., Markov chain Monte Carlo, Sequential Monte Carlo), high-dimensional approximation techniques (e.g., quasi Monte Carlo and sparse grids), algorithms for big data analytics, stochastic and distributed optimisation methods, model reduction, high performance computing, and scientific and industrial applications such as computational finance, mathematical biology, geophysics and flows in porous media, etc.

The program consists of two parts:
1. A mini-conference, starting on Tuesday 13 June at 1pm and ending on Friday 16 June at 1pm. 45-minute invited presentations and 30-minute contributed presentations will be scheduled for each day during the mini-conference.
2. A research workshop, starting on Monday morning 19 June and ending on Friday 23 June at noon. Informal talks will be placed in the morning. Afternoons are reserved for collaboration.
