1 15th ÖGOR Workshop Mathematische Ökonomie und Optimierung in der Energiewirtschaft

The 15th ÖGOR Workshop Mathematische Ökonomie und Optimierung in der Energiewirtschaft will take place on September 23 and 24, 2021 at Webster Vienna Private University. You can find the announcement here. Focus areas are optimization, statistical learning, machine learning, AI, open data and open-source tools, and the effects of the corona pandemic on energy modeling.

2 Doctoral Program ENROL Will Start in October 2021

The MSCA COFUND doctoral program Engineering for Life Sciences (ENROL) with a total volume of 3.25 M€, cofunded by the European Commission, will start in October 2021 and run till September 2026.

3 Double-Degree Program with University of Modena and Reggio Emilia Signed

A double-degree program between the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia and TU Wien has been signed. It allows selected students to obtain a double PhD degree in applied mathematics and/or information and communication technologies.

4 Dr. Leila Taghizadeh Wins Hannspeter Winter Prize 2020

The Hannspeter Winter Prize is the annual prize for the best PhD thesis by a female student at TU Wien. Each of the eight departments may nominate at most one candidate, resulting in an interdisciplinary competition.

Dr. Leila Taghizadeh has been awarded the Hannspeter Winter Prize 2020 of TU Wien for fundamental research in applied mathematics. Press release by TU Wien.

Congratulations to Leila!

Since her PhD defense in October 2019, Leila is a postdoc in my group Machine Learning and Uncertainty Quantification at the Institute of Analysis and Scientific Computing at TU Wien. Her work focuses on mathematical modeling, analysis, and simulation of stochastic PDE systems with applications in biology, medicine, and physics. Currently she is also working on uncertainty quantification in epidemiological models (applied to COVID-19).

9 Minisymposium Optimization and Model-Free Learning at SIAM MDS 2020 (Postponed due to COVID-19 Pandemic)

I am organizing the minisymposium on Optimization and Model-Free Learning at the SIAM Conference on Mathematics of Data Science (MDS20).

10 Thematic Program on Uncertainty Quantification in May/June 2020 (Postponed to 2022 due to COVID-19 Pandemic)

We will organize five workshops at the Erwin Schrödinger Institute (ESI) in Vienna within the thematic program Computational Uncertainty Quantification: Mathematical Foundations, Methodology and Data in spring 2020:

  1. multilevel and multifidelity sampling methods in UQ for PDEs,
  2. PDE-constrained Bayesian inverse UQ,
  3. statistical estimation and deep learning in UQ for PDEs,
  4. approximation of high-dimensional parametric PDEs in forward UQ,
  5. UQ in kinetic and transport equations and in high-frequency wave propagation.

The homepage of the thematic program at ESI is here.
