AARMS COVID-19 Seminar: Ahmed Saif (Dalhousie)

April 21, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Zoom seminar

A Simulation-Optimization Framework for Optimizing Response Strategies to Epidemics Epidemics require dynamic response strategies that encompass a multitude of policy alternatives and that balance health, economic and societal considerations. We propose a simulation-optimization framework to aid policymakers select closure, protection and travel policies to minimize the total number of infections under a limited budget. The proposed framework combines a modified, age-stratified SEIR compartmental model to evaluate the health impact of response strategies and a Genetic Algorithm to effectively search for…

Groups acting on Trees: minicourse by Olga Kharlampovich

May 3, 2021 - May 7, 2021
Online via Zoom

From May 3, 2021 to May 7, 2021, Professor O. Kharlampovich from City University of New York will teach a mini course on Groups acting on Trees. Due to the current situation caused by the corona virus disease, the mini course will take place virtually. Bass-Serre theory relates group actions on trees with decomposing groups as iterated applications of the operations of amalgamated product and HNN extension, via the notion of the fundamental group of a graph of groups. One…

Canadian Student and Postdoc Conference on Gravity

May 4, 2021 - May 6, 2021
Online via Zoom

The Canadian Student and Postdoc Conference on Gravity (CSPCG) will provide a forum for both Canadian and international graduate students and postdocs to gather and present their research. It invites submissions for talks covering all aspects of gravitational research, including mathematical and numerical relativity, quantum gravity, string-theoretic approaches to gravity, gravitational waves, relativistic astrophysics, and cosmology. It will run as a virtual event from May 4-6, 2021, creating an accessible platform for students and postdocs who do not necessarily have…

Blundon Seminar Math Camp

May 19, 2021 - May 21, 2021
Memorial University (St. John’s Campus) St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador Canada + Google Map

The Blundon Seminar is an annual (since 1982) three-day math camp for senior high school students from Newfoundland who are interested in mathematics and demonstrate consistently good performance in mathematics competitions. Participation in the math camp is by invitation only based on the results of preceding Blundon, COMC, Euclid, Fermat, and Cayley contests. During the seminar the students attend two one-hour talks given by professors from MUN on various mathematical topics and applications in science and engineering. There are several…

17th Algorithms and Data Structures Symposium & 33rd Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry

August 9, 2021 - August 12, 2021
Dalhousie University Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada + Google Map

This event consists of two co-located conferences over a four-day period. These two conferences are the 17th Algorithms and Data Structures Symposium (WADS) and the 33rd Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry (CCCG). WADS is intended as a forum for researchers in the area of design and analysis of algorithms and data structures. We invite submissions of papers presenting original research on the theory and application of algorithms and data structures in all areas, including combinatorics, computational geometry, databases, graphics, and…
