Tropical Geometry, Berkovich Spaces, Arithmetic D-Modules and p-adic Local Systems

June 15-19, 2020
Imperial College of London (UK)
https://www-fourier.ujf-grenoble.fr/~pulitaa/Imperial-Conference/Imperial-Conference.html

Registration deadline: March 31, 2020

With this workshop we would like to promote the interaction between the following five fields:

Berkovich spaces
Tropical geometry
p-adic differential equations
Arithmetic D-modules and representations of p-adic Lie groups Arithmetic applications of p-adic local systems

While the first two are already tightly linked, the role of Berkovich spaces in the last ones is only emerging and within this, the role of tropical geometry has not yet been explored. More generally, we consider this conference to be a good opportunity to study new techniques recently introduced into the field. We are convinced that each of these areas has plenty of potential and that a fruitful interaction between them might nourish their development. The aim of the conference is precisely to give leading experts in these each of these domains the opportunity to meet, present their last results and open challenges, and encourage an exchange that will drive forward these exciting and rapidly developing subjects.

33rd Conference of the European Chapter on Combinatorial Optimization

June 4-6, 2020
Saint Petersburg, Russia
https://ecco2020.euro-online.org/

Submission deadline: February 1, 2020

The 33rd Conference of the European Chapter on Combinatorial Optimization (ECCO 2020) will be held in the beautiful city of St. Petersburg during the white nights season. It will be hosted by St. Petersburg Department of Steklov Mathematical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

ECCO (European Chapter on Combinatorial Optimization) is a working group of EURO (Association of European Operational Research Societies) that provides an excellent opportunity to discuss recent and important issues in Combinatorial Optimization and its applications.

A special issue of an international refereed journal containing selected full length papers will be dedicated to the conference.

The conference budget includes a limited amount of funds for fee waivers for PhD students from Eastern Europe presenting their work.

Machine Learning for Communication Systems and Networks

September 2-4, 2019
Trinity College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland
https://connectcentre.ie/summer-school/

The Summer School will include a technical track with lectures and workshops on various aspects of Machine Learning, as well as associated training in areas such as research ethics, career development, communicating research, innovation, and public engagement. It will also include social and networking events. Speakers will include Prof Marco Di Renzo (CentraleSupélec/CNRS), Dr Jakob Hoydis (Nokia Bell Labs France), Dr Irene Macaluso (Trinity College Dublin), Dr Panayotis Mertikopoulos (CNRS, Grenoble), Michaela Blott (Xilinx Research Labs, Ireland), Prof Yong Li (Tsinghua University, Beijing) and Prof Paul Patras (University of Edinburgh).

The Mathematics of Quantum Computation (IIAS@HUJI, Israel)

December 15-19, 2019
IIAS @ Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel
http://ias.huji.ac.il/SchoolCSE4

Registration deadline: August 23, 2019

The school will introduce TCS and math students and faculty, who are interested in the theoretical aspects of quantum computation, to the beautiful and fascinating mathematical and computational open questions in the area, starting from scratch. No prior knowledge on quantum will be assumed. We hope to reach a point where participants gain initial tools and basic perspective to start working in this area.

The school will consist of several mini-courses, each of two or three hours, about central topics in the area. These include quantum algorithms, quantum error correction, quantum supremacy, delegation and verification, interactive proofs, cryptography, and Hamiltonian complexity. We will emphasize concepts, open questions, and links to mathematics. We will have daily TA sessions with hands-on exercises, to allow for a serious process of learning.

Main speakers: Adam Bouland, Sergey Bravyi, Matthias Christandl, Sandy Irani, Avishay Tal, Thomas Vidick. Additional speakers: Dorit Aharonov, Zvika Brakerski, Or Sattath. (Lists are subject to changes and additions.)
