Organisers: Frances Kuo (University of New South Wales, Australia <f.kuo@unsw.edu.au>), Hans De Sterck (Monash University, Australia), Josef Dick (University of New South Wales, Australia), Mahadevan Ganesh (Colorado School of Mines, USA), Mike Giles (University of Oxford, UK), Markus Hegland (Australia National University, Australia), Dirk Nuyens (KU Leuven, Belgium), Ian Sloan (University of New South Wales, Australia), Clayton Webster (Oak Ridge National Lab, USA), Henryk Wozniakowski (University of Warsaw, Poland, and Columbia University, USA)

Program Description: High dimensional computation is a new frontier in scientific computing, with applications ranging from particle physics, chemical reactions, groundwater flow, heat transport, and wave propagation, to financial mathematics, risk management, and parameter estimation. Often the difficulties come from uncertainty or randomness in the data, and they present major challenges in the areas of data science and uncertainty quantification. This workshop provides a forum for interaction between Australian and international experts on the theory and application of high dimensional computation, including quasi-Monte Carlo and sparse grid methods, information based complexity, discrepancy and approximation theory, computational and Bayesian inverse problems, multi-level and multi-index techniques, energy and point configuration on spheres and manifolds, PDEs with random coefficients or boundaries, and more, with the aim to establish new collaborations.
