Summer School on Randomness and Learning in Non-Linear Algebra

There will be a Summer School on Randomness and Learning in Non-Linear Algebra July 01 – 05, 2019 at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences. This summer school aims at bringing together researchers working on probabilistic and statistical methods and questions in nonlinear algebra. Keynote speakers will be:

  • Peter Bürgisser (Technische Universität Berlin)
  • Daniel Erman (University of Wisconsin-Madison)
  • Antonio Lerario (Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati)

There will also be a number of invited guest speakers and a poster session for interested young participants.
Scientific Organizers:

  • Paul Breiding, MPI for Mathematics in the Sciences
  • Jesus De Loera, University of California at Davis
  • Sonja Petrovic, Illinois Institute of Technology
  • Despina Stasi, Illinois Institute of Technology

Poster submissions and registration are now open (as of 11 Febrary 2019). Travel funding applications are being accepted until 1 April 2019.
Registration, funding, and poster session information:
Students, postdocs, and other early career researchers are strongly encouraged to submit a poster to present at the poster session.
Travel funding is available to participants if they agree to present their work in the form of a poster. Applicants from the US are not required, but are nevertheless strongly encouraged, to submit a poster. All interested participants may apply for funding during the registration process and will receive further instructions in their confirmation email.
*** Funding decisions will be made by April 15th, 2019. ***
Logistical information:
For information about travel to the institute, please check the “Travel instructions” link from the school homepage.
US-based participants who anticipate that they may receive a travel allowance from our NSF grant will need to comply with the agency’s travel guidelines (see below).
Information about hotel suggestions will be sent out shortly; there are no restrictions or special rates on hotel bookings.
NSF guidelines for air travel:
Participants may note that, depending on their origin/destination city pair, they don’t necessarily have to use a US-flag carrier to fly to the school. To see if this is the case, please check the city-pair requirement of the Open-Skies agreement (there are links on the site above).
