5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Statistical Methods for Computational Advertising
19 avr 2020 - 24 avr 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Résumé:
Computational advertising is a multi-billion dollar business, but it has received little attention from academic statisticians. Nonetheless, this collection of pricing models, keyword auctions, A/B tests, and recommender systems depends heavily upon statistical methodology in nearly every aspect of its performance. This program will bring together scientists from the information technology companies and university] researcher to collaborate on new methods to enable consumers to only see ads for things they actually want to buy, and to enable manufacturers to save advertising budget by accurately targeting interested customers.

Focussed Research Groups at BIRS — Novel fluid/structure/field (FFSI) modeling framework in the context of ion channels
31 mai 2020 - 07 jui 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Organisateur:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Résumé:
Tremendous progress has been made in the past century in biological sciences thanks to technological advances in experimental and measuring techniques. As was the case for physics and chemistry in the previous century, biological sciences are at a critical juncture where further advancements depend and rely crucially on the development of now quantitative tools. Mathematics will inevitably play a crucial role during the processes while biology comes increasingly more quantitative as a scientific discipline.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Mathematical Frameworks for Integrative Analysis of Emerging Biological Data Types
14 jui 2020 - 19 jui 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Résumé:
Accurate mathematical models of biological cells during health and disease are essential in understanding biology, advancing precision medicine and treating disease. Emerging technologies, such as RNA and DNA sequencing give clinical and basic research laboratories great power to quantify tens of thousands of biological molecules and generate highly detailed biological maps at different molecular, spatial and temporal resolutions. Integrating these diverse data may provide a comprehensive multi-layer view of a biological system that cannot be obtained by considering each dataset individually. However, currently biological insight is hindered by the inherent complexity of the data and paucity of methods to integrate these data. By gathering mathematical, statistical and computational experts in the field of genomic data integration, pioneer solutions for data integration problems will be discussed. This workshop will promote the development of cutting edge mathematical, statistical and computational methods to extract reliable information from big biological data. The anticipated deliverables are a set of open source resources for international scientists to use and reuse on their own data, to accelerate the pace and impact of discoveries in this exciting field of research.

Focussed Research Groups at BIRS — Studying PDE Dynamics via Optimization with Integral Inequality Constraints
26 jul 2020 - 02 aou 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Organisateur:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Résumé:
Partial differential equations arise ubiquitously as laws of physics and other mathematical models across the scientific and engineering disciplines. The solutions to these equations describe the behavior of the systems modeled by the equations, but very often the solutions are too complicated to be found exactly. As an example from one of many disciplines, equations governing the flow of liquids or gases can be simple to write down, but solutions corresponding to extremely intricate turbulent motions of the fluids are impossible to find. One approach in such cases is to use powerful computers to approximate single solutions. A second complementary approach is to seek mathematical statements that give only partial information about solutions but that apply broadly to all possible solutions. This Focused Research Group aims to improve and apply methods that take the latter approach. This will be done by using recently developed tools from the field of optimization to solve research questions in the field of partial differential equations. This requires bringing together researchers in both of these largely separate mathematical disciplines, which is made possible by the BIRS Focused Research Group program.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Interfacial Phenomena in Reaction-Diffusion Systems
02 aou 2020 - 07 aou 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Résumé:
Interfacial phenomena are observed in many fields of sciences, such as chemistry, physics, biology and medicine. Examples include formation and motion of phase boundaries in multi-phase materials, propagation of population waves in ecology, and so on. This workshop focuses, among other things, on interfacial phenomena in complex environments, such as those in spatially and/or temporally heterogeneous media, those in random environments, and those in the presence of obstacles. We also focus on interfacial phenomena in biology and those related to geometry. We aim at developing new mathematical framework to deepen our understanding of those complex interfacial phenomena.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Causal Inference with Big Data
16 aou 2020 - 21 aou 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Résumé:
Causal inference is a central pillar of many scientific disciplines. Motivated by applications in different scientific fields, there has been tremendous progress in causal inference in the last twenty years. At the same time, the era of big data has presented the field with massive, heterogeneous and complex data sets, posing further challenges. It is therefore crucial and timely to bring together the researchers from both ends, in order to share recent advances, to identify pressing problems, to spark productive collaborations, and to ultimately advance the state of the art by developing new theory and methods for causal inference with big data.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Biological Active Porous Materials: Modeling, Simulation and Experimentation
04 oct 2020 - 09 oct 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Résumé:
One of the key technologies emerging in the 21st century is that of advanced materials, which offer the opportunity to change our lives in many ways, from improving energy efficiency through enabling new biomedical treatments and devices. In order to harness these materials, though, significant progress is needed in developing our understanding of how they work and interact, across scales ranging from those of atoms and molecules through the full size of devices constructed from them. Across the fields of experimentalists, materials scientists, and computational scientists focusing on active biological tissue, significant research is now underway in understanding the properties of both natural and engineered materials across these scales. This workshop brings together experts with distinct views on these materials and devices, aiming to seed the cross-disciplinary research needed to realize their potential to gain new knowledge on active biological materials and to best exploit it. We will bring together a diverse group of world-leading researchers focusing on discussions on the advances currently being made and the collaborations needed to fully unlock the transformative power of advanced materials by using biological active materials as role models.

Focussed Research Groups at BIRS — Predicting and Preventing Wellbore Leakage
05 oct 2020 - 17 mai 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Organisateur:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Résumé:
Canada is entering an era of P&A (Plug and Abandonment) in which 1000's of oil & gas wells will be abandoned annually for the foreseeable future, highlighting the critical question of safe long-term abandonment of these wells. Leaking wells (i.e. when natural gas seeps from wellbores) are threats to the environment and public safety of Canada and they can result in the destruction of near well ecosystems, environment pollution (e.g. groundwater contamination), GHG emissions and safety hazards (explosion risks). This workshop brings together mathematically oriented scientists and engineers to develop complementary and interlinked studies addressing knowledge gaps underlying these societally important issues.
