Workshop Robust Optimization
Date/location: 8-10 November 2015,
De Groene Loper 5, TUE
Organisator: Eurandom
The aim of this workshop is to bring together leaders whose expertise spans two areas of research: robust optimization & applied probability.

Robust optimization has emerged as a tractable paradigm for analyzing and optimizing models in which certain system parameters are unknown. Alternatively, applied probability has traditionally been a field yielding insights into how systems behave under uncertainty, when the uncertainty is characterized by known random variables. New modeling and optimization challenges, e.g. those coming from data-rich environments and arising in the domain of machine learning, give rise to questions best addressed by combining insights from both domains of robust optimization and applied probability. The aim of this workshop is to bring together leaders whose expertise spans these areas of research, facilitating the transference of ideas, insights, and methodologies to tackle new and exciting problems at the interface of robust optimization and applied probability.

Opening Workshop (SDBW01), "Isaac Newton Institute Programme on Stochastic Dynamical Systems in Biology: Numerical Methods and Applications"
Date: 18-22 January 2016, Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge, UK
In the past decades, quantitative biology has been driven by new modelling-based stochastic dynamical systems and partial differential equations. Examples from gene regulation, molecular signalling, cell division and mole?cular transport, as recently revealed by live cell images, have shown that many processes in cells and in molecular biology are inherently driven by stochastic events. One of the biggest challenges we propose to address in this programme is to develop methods and analy?sis, as well as efficient algorithms for simulations, to bridge the range of different biological scales.

In support of this goal, the programme will focus on:

?            Analysis of stochastic dynamical systems and applications in molecular and cellular biology.

?            Development of efficient computational methods for simulating stochastic equations over various scales.

?            Identifying new research areas.

The aim of this opening workshop is to introduce participants to the different subject areas of the programme. In particular, this workshop will include a number of mini-courses aimed at senior graduate and postgraduate students, together with high level overview talks, given by world experts, which will highlight some of the major open problems in the field.

Limited funding is available to partially cover the costs of junior parti?ci?pants from the U.S. and the U.K. Please see the workshop website for de?tails.


The following introductory mini-courses are planned as part of the work?shop:

*    Stochastic Simulation of Models Arising in the Life Sciences I (non-spatial
models). David Anderson (University of Wisconsin)

*    Stochastic Simulation of Models Arising in the Life Sciences II (spatial
models). Samuel Isaacson (Boston University)

*    Narrow escape theory, first passage time to a small hole and appli?cations to modelling cell biology processes. David Holcman (Ecole Normale Sup?rieure).

List of workshop speakers:
Ruth Baker (University of Oxford), Neil Dalchau (Microsoft Research),
Jasmine Foo (University of Minnesota), Mike Giles (University of Oxford),
Ray Goldstein (University of Cambridge), Des Higham (University of Strathclyde), Stefan Klumpp (Max-Planck-Institut), Rachel Kuske (Univer?sity of British Columbia), Yihan Lin (California Institute of Tech?no?logy), Scott McKinley (Tulane University), Johan Paulsson (Harvard University), Linda Petzold (University of California, Santa Barbara),
Christof Sch?ette (Freie Universit?t Berlin), Blerta Shtylla (Pomona College), Ben Simons (University of Cambridge), Peter Swain (University of Edinburgh), Eric Vanden-Eijnden (New York University, Courant Institute), Darren Wilkinson (University of Newcastle).
