# Conferences

Mathematical Sciences faculty and students participate in a number conferences:

## 2018

### Kliakhandler Conference: Graph Decompositions

Thursday-Saturday, August 9-11, 2018

The purpose of the 2018 Kliakhandler Conference is to stimulate research activity and collaboration between researchers and students who are interested in graph decompositions and their applications. Graph decomposition problems regularly appear in the fields of graph theory, design theory, and algebra and have applications to communication, optimization, and algorithms. The conference will also include a special session titled “Everyday Combinatorics”, which will focus on combinatorics at the high school level. The session will be geared towards in-service and pre-service teachers, and faculty and graduate students who are interested in enrichment/outreach activities.

## 2017

### Kliakhandler Conference on Bayesian Inference in Statistics and Statistical Genetics

The 2017 Kliakhandler Conference is intended to stimulate research collaboration in the development, analysis, and application of statistical techniques for complex, high-dimensional data arising in real world applications.

## 2016

### IMA Graduate Student Conference: Finite Element Methods for Eigenvalue Problems

The program aims to mix leading researchers and local faculty in computational mathematics together to infuse graduate students with the fundamentals of finite element methods and cutting-edge PDE and matrix eigenvalue problems.

### Kliakhandler: International Conference on Computational Math. and Inverse Problems

The International Conference on Numerical Analysis and Inverse Problems intends to bring leading researchers to discuss the recent developments on numerical analysis, scientific computing, and inverse problems. The topics of the conference include finite element methods for eigenvalue problems, finite element methods for Maxwell's equation, computational inverse problems, inverse scattering problems. The conference seeks to build collaboration among the participants, in particular, the young researchers within five years of graduation.

## 2015

### Kliakhandler: Algebraic Combinatorics and Applications

The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers and students interested in algebraic combinatorics, combinatorial designs, finite geometry, graphs, and their applications to communications, classical and quantum error-correcting codes, cryptography, information security, and other related areas, in order to promote new linkages and collaborations.
