Evdokia Nikolova (University of Texas at Austin; chair), Anna Gilbert (University of Michigan), Piotr Indyk (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Richard Karp (UC Berkeley), Leonard Schulman (California Institute of Technology)

In both the natural sciences and urban systems, collections of signals obtained at different times and locations and by means of different technologies must be combined to give an overall classification and characterization of an environment.  This workshop will explore the wide variety of algorithmic methods that come into play in analyzing and acting on such signals, including streaming algorithms, data reduction and data management, high-dimensional geometry, optimization, machine learning, control theory, signal processing and statistical prediction.

All talks will be recorded. Enquiries may be sent to the organizers workshop-realtime3 [at] lists [dot] simons [dot] berkeley [dot] edu (at this address)

All events take place in the Calvin Lab Auditorium.
