This international, interdisciplinary, educational and capacity building

workshop will bring together the two subjects of infectious diseases and

invasive species and the context of climate change, thus allowing sharing the

methods and building partnerships. The workshop will address the whole range of

topics from field-work and collecting of data to the building and validating of

models, to the adjustment of models to take into account the changing

environment and the social characteristics, and to the design and implementation

of strategies to fight infectious diseases and invasive species. Special

emphasis will be put on African diseases and invasive species, as well as the

characteristics of changing environment in Africa.

Genes are transmitted randomly: this is why probability, a branch of mathematics, is used to model evolution within species. The lecture will give a non-technical overview of some models and explain the two-way interaction between mathematics and population genetics. Starting with the famous model of Wright-Fisher in the 1930’s, it will move to the revolutionary way of looking at evolution introduced by Kingman in 1982: instead of looking forward in time, we look backward! DNA data became available in the last decades and statistics now plays a crucial role in determining the ancestral trees back in time. A stunning application is the identification of hotspots of recombination, where chromosomes are more likely to break on reproduction. Continue reading →

The new structure of power systems, with decentralized and highly variable production sources (renewable energies like wind or photovoltaic) and consumption sinks (accumulators, transport), challenges optimization methods for their management.

Pierre Carpentier (ENSTA ParisTech), Jean-Philippe Chancelier and Michel De Lara (École des Ponts ParisTech) have been working together for more than ten years at the Optimization and Systems Group at Cermics, the applied mathematics research center of École des Ponts ParisTech. Their central theme of investigation is about numerical methods in stochastic optimization. Their main application is the management of energy systems under uncertainty, in collaboration with industrial partners.

The course will present stochastic control theory, and extensions to more advanced topics, like risk constraints and informational constraints in large-scale systems. Courses will alternate with computer practical works. The main examples will be taken from dam management under uncertainty. However, the practical issues, the general theory and the numerical methods presented can be applied to other uncertain sources of energy (wind, solar) and, more generally, to the management of smart power systems.

The CIRM School Stochastic Control for the Management of Renewable Energies (STOCORE) is hosted by the Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques (CIRM) at Marseille (South of France) between 8-12 April 2013.

The CIRM School STOCORE is in the realm and continuation of the Institut Henri Poincaré (IHP) trimester MABIES Mathematics of Bio-Economics (2013, January 7 – April 5), organized by Michel De Lara and Luc Doyen, itself a contribution to the Mathematics of Planet Earth – MPE2013 initiative.

Geomathematics is an emerging new scientific area. Its increasing importance is due to visionary scientists such as Willi Freeden, whose 65th birthday is celebrated by this conference. This workshop is dedicated to the interdisciplinary research of mathematicians and geoscientists and contributes to the international year “Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013″. It provides a platform for scientists working in the intersection of mathematics and the geosciences to present and discuss novel solutions and open problems. Besides the invited lectures, contributed talks, in particular also by junior scientists, from all areas of the interface of mathematics and the geosciences are welcome. Continue reading →

The objectives of this workshop are:

(1) to bring together researchers to address emerging issues in non-Gaussian

multivariate statistical models and their application;

(2) to promote interactions and collaborations among researchers in Canada and around the world on two specific lines of research, namely multivariate skew-symmetric distributions and copula models;

(3) to explore the combination of multivariate skew-symmetric distributions and copulas to obtain tractable models with tail dependence and reflection tail asymmetry;

(4) to discuss ideas and future directions for developing realistic and useful non-Gaussian statistical models, with emphasis on their applications;

(5) to provide opportunities for graduate students and recent Ph.D. recipients to meet and interact with leading researchers in the area.
