Seminars and Conferences

Building new relationships, meeting new contacts, gaining knowledge in your field, having meaning conversations with peers is important to personal and professional growth. Attending a seminar or conference can improve communication skills and confidence and you can gain expert knowledge and network with others. We offer numerous seminars and conferences to help you on your way.



Kliakhandler: Computational Modeling and Image Processing of Biomedical Problems

This is an interdisciplinary conference dedicated to mathematical and computational aspects of biomedical imaging. It fosters knowledge transfer between the applied mathematics and imaging communities. Particularly, the conference offers a venue to initiate new connections between and across the traditional boundaries among mathematics, engineering, physics,and biomedical sciences, both within Michigan Tech and beyond.


Kliakhandler: Graph Decompositions

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. 


Kliakhandler: 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.


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 Numerical Analysis 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.


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.


We offer four different seminar series throughout the academic year where we invite professionals and alumni from all over the world to share their expertise. Our Departmental Colloquium is a general mathematics seminar series. We offer two specialized seminars: Combinatorics and Statistics/Applied Mathematics. We also host a lecture series sponsored by Igor Kliakhandler, a former mathematics faculty member.
