Josh Bloom (UC Berkeley), Balaji Prabhakar (Stanford University)

This workshop concerns algorithmic methods for the control of systems characterized by the need to make real-time decisions based on data arriving continuously in high volume.  Its goal is to create collaborations between researchers in domains of physical sciences, engineering and societal systems involving real-time decision making, and mathematical and computational scientists with the tools required to attack the decision-theoretic problems arising in these domains. The workshop will include expository presentations on robotic astronomical observation, earthquake early warning, control of transportation networks, online matching markets and smart energy grids; talks on the central mathematical and algorithmic problems arising in such  decision problems; and group discussions aimed at framing a broad research agenda for both theoretical and applied progress on these problems.
