IPAM (Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics at UCLA) sent us the current schedule for the upcoming workshop seminars. Back in January, 2006 we attended the now famous Document Space Workshop and the experience there was a real nirvana. We had the opportunity of meeting its then director, Dr. Mark Green and few other world class researchers like Dr. Michael Berry, an expert in LSI.

IPAM now has a new director and associate director. According to them:

Dr. Russel Caflisch, UCLA professor of mathematics, was appointed as IPAM Director on July 1, 2008. Dr. Jichun Li, an associate professor of mathematics at University of Nevada Las Vegas, joined the IPAM scientific staff in August; he will serve a two-year term as one of IPAM’s Associate Directors, along with Dr. Christian Ratsch.  Please help us welcome Dr. Caflisch and Dr. Li to IPAM!”

We highly recommend our readers that can to attend the IPAM workshops. For those interested in attending, the current schedule of events is given below.

Upcoming IPAM Long Programs:

 Each IPAM long program will involve a community of senior and junior researchers. The intent is for long-term participants to have an opportunity to learn about the topic of the program from the perspectives of many different fields and to meet a diverse group of people and have an opportunity to form new collaborations. In addition to these activities, there will be opening tutorials, four workshops (each one is listed under “upcoming workshops”), and a culminating workshop at Lake Arrowhead. Funding is available both to attend our entire 3-month program and to attend individual workshops; those interested are encouraged to apply through the website of the program that interests them.  Applications received at least six weeks in advance of the long program will receive fullest consideration.
