Conferences
2018NSFCBMS Conference on Additive Combinatorics from a Geometric ViewpointAdditive combinatorics is a very active area of mathematics. It is the crossing point of number theory, harmonic analysis, ergodic theory, and combinatorics. Beyond the numerous conferences and workshops, special semesterlong programs have been organized on the subject at Princeton (IAS), Cambridge (Newton Institute), UCLA (IPAM), and UC Berkeley (MSRI). In this series of lectures, Dr. Jozsef Solymosi (University of British Columbia) provides an elementary introduction to additive combinatorics using discrete geometry, algebra, extremal combinatorics, and a bit of algebraic geometry. He also shows how to apply these techniques in order to attack Erdos type problems in discrete geometry. The lectures and the monograph to be written are intended for students and researchers working on related areas, and to help those who intend to enter the field. More details... 

2018Biplanar Crossing Numbers and Random GraphsThe AMS’s Mathematics Research Communities (MRC) is a professional development program offering earlycareer mathematicians a rich array of opportunities to develop collaboration skills, build a network focused in an active research domain, and receive mentoring from leaders in that area. Funded through a generous threeyear grant from the National Science Foundation, MRC is a yearlong experience that includes:
This workshop is a followup workshop to the Mathematics Research Communities "Beyond Planarity: Crossing Numbers of Graphs" program targeting collaboration of the participants on crossing numbers and other related combinatorial problems. Visiting participants are supported by the American Mathematical Society from NSF funding. More details... 

2018Ninth Annual Graduate Student Miniconference in Computational MathematicsThe Graduate Student Miniconference in Computational Mathematics, known as JohnFest, is an annual event that provides graduate students a forum to present their research findings and exchange ideas with researchers in the field of computational and applied mathematics. The University of South Carolina, Columbia (USC) will host the ninth annual graduate student miniconference on February 1718, 2018. More details... 

201528th Cumberland Conference on Combinatorics, Graph Theory & ComputingThe Cumberland Conference on Combinatorics, Graph Theory, and Computing is an annual conference that brings together internationally known researchers, industrial mathematicians and computer scientists, and southeastern university and college professors, postdocs, graduate and undergraduate students, to discuss the latest advances in discrete mathematics and computer science. Particular efforts are made to include faculty and students from smaller institutions throughout the region. Each year, a different university in the Cumberland region hosts the conference, usually in the month of May, immediately after the end of the spring semester. This year, the University of South Carolina is pleased to host the TwentyEighth Cumberland Conference on its Columbia campus, from May 15 – 17, 2015. More details... 

2013Summer School on Network ScienceDesigned to bring network science closer to the USC community, this Summer School will present leaders in this field to lecture on campus. Four keynote speakers will each deliver five tutorial lectures over the course of two weeks. Additional talks will be presented by nationally recognized contributors. Sessions allocated to small group discussions and collaborative interactions will be encouraged. More details... 

2011New Frontiers in Imaging and SensingThe Interdisciplinary Mathematics Institute (IMI) and the NanoCenter are pleased to announce a special research workshop scheduled for February 17 – 22, 2011. This intensive workshop, focused on developing new imaging methods for electron microscopy with special emphasis on sparsity recovering and compressed sensing concepts, will include 23 lectures and 5 discussion sessions held over a six day period, and will bring together experts in relevant areas from material science, microscopy, sensor systems, mathematics and computer science to identify current obstacles and problems in the field that have the potential to be resolved by emerging mathematical methods.
