Conferences & Workshops

Upcoming or Recent

The following are events in which our department is closely involved:

Past Conferences

2019 Fall Clifford Lectures
Over the past three decades, geophysical flows have aroused a lot of interest in the mathematical community. The specificity of these flows is due to the combination of rotation and stratification. Their phenomenology is therefore very rich, first of all because there is a large range of parameters (viscosity, compressibility, salinity, density,…) and also because geometry plays an important role.


Recent Advances in Pure and Applied Stochastics
This conference brings to together a diverse group of researchers working in pure and applied stochastics.
Topics include:
        Ergodic theory of Markov processes
        Statistical sampling algorithms
        Applications in fluid dynamics, turbulence, and mathematical biology

Quantitative Methods in Understanding Cellular Transport Workshop
The goal of this workshop is to bring together bioscientists and mathematicians working in the area of single particle tracking and live cell imaging for a series of talks and discussions.

2019 Spring Clifford Lectures
Over the past four decades, input from geometry and analysis has been central to progress in the field of low-dimensional topology. This talk will focus on one aspect of these developments, namely the use of Yang-Mills theory, or gauge theory. These techniques were pioneered by Simon Donaldson in his work on 4-manifolds beginning in 1982, but the past ten years have seen new applications of gauge theory, and new interactions with more recent threads in the subject, particularly in 3-dimensional topology and knot theory. I’ll focus on the question of "How can we detect knottedness?" Many mathematical techniques have found application to this question, but gauge theory in particular has provided its own collection of answers, both directly and through its connection with other tools. Beyond classical knots, we will also take a look at the nearby but less-explored world of spatial graphs.

2018 Commutative Algebra and Representation Theory
The goal of this conference is to bring researchers from commutative algebra, algebraic combinatorics and representation theory together to stimulate further research interaction and collaboration across these areas.

2018 Gulf States Math Alliance Conference
Regional meeting of the National Math Alliance for Doctoral Studies in Math Sciences.More information

2018 SCALA
The LSU Center for Computation and Technology (CCT) and Tulane University's Center for Computational Science (CCS) will co-sponsor a meeting to:  (1) Highlight cutting-edge topics in scientific computing, (2) showcase the research at Louisiana institutions and, (3) promote collaborations across the state of Louisiana.

Sixth Annual Winter Workshop on Neuromechanics and Dynamics of Locomotion. More information

Configuration spaces, braids and applications
Supported by the NSF and Tulane's SSE this mini series of lectures will be held in the Mathematics Department at Tulane University, New Orleans, from January 13 to January 15, 2012. The principal speaker will be Professor Frederick Cohen from the University of Rochester, who will deliver three lectures centered on the topics of the title. The lectures will be aimed at the graduate students audience.

Clifford Lectures
This is an annual week-long series of talks by a distinguished mathematician. A mini-conference is held in conjunction with each of the Clifford Lecture series. A unique feature of the conference is that the other invited speakers are selected by the Clifford Lecturer.

Mathematical Foundations of Programming Semantics
This is an annual conference and workshop organized partly by Tulane University.  MFPS conferences are devoted to those areas of mathematics, logic, and computer science that are related to model of computation, in general, and to the semantics of programming languages, in particular.
