Dr. Mark Green, Director of the Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics at UCLA (IPAM) informed me by email of the upcoming workshops IPAM is organizing. I meet Dr. Green last year  during a one-week workshop they organized (The Document Space Workshop)

I am listing below the new workshops relevant to search engines:

Mathematics of Knowledge and Search Engines:Tutorials, September 11 – 20, 2007


Dynamic Searches and Knowledge Building, October 1 – 5, 2007


Numerical Tools and Fast Algorithms for Massive Data Mining, Search Engines and Applications, October 22 – 26, 2007


Social Data Mining and Knowledge Building, November 5 – 9, 2007


Search and Knowledge Building for Biological Datasets, November 26 – 30, 2007


IPAM also has several Summer programs:

Graduate Summer School 2007

Probabilistic Models of Cognition: The Mathematics of the Mind, July 9 – 27, 2007


Research in Industrial Projects for Students (RIPS), June 24 – August 24, 2007

36 undergraduate students of mathematics, engineering, computer science, and physical and life science work on nine applied mathematics research projects sponsored by Arete, Amgen, Accelrys, Pixar, JPL, Lawrence-Livermore and Los Alamos National Labs, the Center for Applied Proteomics at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and Symantec.  Another 10
U.S. students and 10 Chinese students will participate in RIPS-Beijing on five projects sponsored by Microsoft Research Asia.  The 2007 program is full.  For more information, go to http://www.ipam.ucla.edu/programs/rips2007/

Thanks, Dr. Green.
