International Conference on Novel Directions in Inverse Scattering

Feb 17, 2013. The “International Conference on Novel Directions in Inverse Scattering” will be a scientific gathering of international experts as well as junior researchers in the area of inverse scattering theory with focus in novel techniques for solving inverse scattering problems. The goal of this conference is to be a forum for the exchange of hot theoretical results, new trends, open problems and future directions in the area of inverse scattering. The topics of the conference involve rapidly developing mathematics at the frontiers on today's research in the area of inverse problems. Applicability of these type of mathematics extends to many real life applications including medical imaging, non-destructive testing, underground imaging and oil exploration, cloaking an enhance visibility. The conference will celebrate the scientific accomplishments of Professor David Colton.

IMA Mathematics 2013

Feb 15, 2013. We are happy to announce the IMA Mathematics 2013, taking place Thursday 14 March 2013, Mary Ward House, London

Mathematics 2013 is the eighth in the series of annual IMA conferences to promote mathematics. This series aims to demonstrate to both mathematicians and non mathematicians the many uses of modern mathematics. The 2013 conference focuses on the Mathematics of Planet Earth, including talks on climate, education, energy and demography. We hope that the audience will have mathematicians, those who work with mathematicians in policy forming roles, and anyone who has an interest in developments in the applications of mathematics.
