In this category we discuss upcoming conferences.

ICIAM2011 & MCQMC2012


The next ICIAM conference is held in Vancouver from 18th to 22nd of July 2011. Jan Baldeaux, Michael Gnewuch, Anargyros Papageorgiou and myself are going to propose several mini-symposia on Approximation, Tractability, Discrepancy theory and Applications of Monte Carlo and quasi-Monte Carlo methods. Currently we have 15 speakers. If you would like to join one of our mini-symposia please send me an email well before the 18th of October (which is the deadline for proposing mini-symposia).


The tenth international conference on Monte Carlo and quasi-Monte Carlo conference (MCQMC) will be held at UNSW in Sydney from 13th to 17th of February 2012. The official website can be found here. More information will be posted there in due course.

ICIAM 2011 Minisymposia

Steffen Dereich, Michael Gnewuch, Anargyros Papageorgiou, and myself will organise minisymposia at the ICIAM 2011 conference in Vancouver. This conference will be held from July 18 to 22, 2011.

The aim is to establish an organised platform for our colleagues to give and attend talks which are broadly related to each other. Topics discussed at previous conferences can be found at the Dagstuhl homepage, the MCQMC 2010 conference, the FOCM’08 conference, the Uniform Distribution Theory conference, the Discrepancy Workshop in Varenna, and others (this list is of course biased and not complete). In effect we will have our own miniconference within ICIAM by arranging a series of minisymposia. I may point out though that none of the above mentioned including myself is in any way part of the ICIAM conference organisation itself.
