Conferences & Workshops

Upcoming or Recent Conferences and Workshops

The following are events in which our department is closely involved:

Past Conferences:

2019 SCALA

Tulane University's Center for Computational Science and the LSU Center for Computation and Technology (CCT) will co-sponsor the tenth Scientific Computing Around Louisiana meeting. The goals are to:

(1) highlight cutting-edge topics in scientific computing,
(2) showcase the research at Louisiana institutions and,
(3) promote collaborations across the state of Louisiana. More information

2019 SCMB: Quantitative Methods in Understanding Cellular Transport Workshop

The goal of this workshop is to bring together bioscientists and mathematicians working in the area of single particle tracking and live cell imaging for a series of talks and discussions. More information

2019 Spring Clifford Lectures

Over the past four decades, input from geometry and analysis has been central to progress in the field of low-dimensional topology. This talk will focus on one aspect of these developments, namely the use of Yang-Mills theory, or gauge theory. These techniques were pioneered by Simon Donaldson in his work on 4-manifolds beginning in 1982, but the past ten years have seen new applications of gauge theory, and new interactions with more recent threads in the subject, particularly in 3-dimensional topology and knot theory. I’ll focus on the question of "How can we detect knottedness?" Many mathematical techniques have found application to this question, but gauge theory in particular has provided its own collection of answers, both directly and through its connection with other tools. Beyond classical knots, we will also take a look at the nearby but less-explored world of spatial graphs. More information

2018 Commutative Algebra and Representation Theory

The goal of this conference is to bring researchers from commutative algebra, algebraic combinatorics and representation theory together to stimulate further research interaction and collaboration across these areas. More information

Wentzell Conference

Stochastic Perturbations of Dynamical System

A conference in honor of Alexander Wentzell and his work. More information


Sixth Annual Winter Workshop on Neuromechanics and Dynamics of Locomotion. More information

Configuration spaces, braids and applicationstop ⇑

Supported by the NSF and Tulane's SSE this mini series of lectures will be held in the Mathematics Department at Tulane University, New Orleans, from January 13 to January 15, 2012. The principal speaker will be Professor Frederick Cohen from the University of Rochester, who will deliver three lectures centered on the topics of the title. The lectures will be aimed at the graduate students audience.  More information


Clifford Lectures

This is an annual week-long series of talks by a distinguished mathematician. A mini-conference is held in conjunction with each of the Clifford Lecture series. A unique feature of the conference is that the other invited speakers are selected by the Clifford Lecturer.  More information

top ⇑ Mathematical Foundations of Programming Semantics

This is an annual conference and workshop organized partly by Tulane University.  MFPS conferences are devoted to those areas of mathematics, logic, and computer science that are related to model of computation, in general, and to the semantics of programming languages, in particular.  More information
