Scientific Meetings

New Trends in Parameter Identification for Mathematical Models

Period: 30/Oct - 03/Nov

This conference congregates two distinct meetings, both focused on inverse problems and parameter identification techniques.

  • Chemnitz Symposium on Inverse Problems on Tour
  • Organizers: A. Leitao (UFSC), B. Hofmann (TU Chemnitz)

  • Symposium on Inverse Problems in Science and Engineering
  • Organizers: H.R.B. Orlande (UFRJ), M.J. Colaco (UFRJ)

    One of the meetings is organized by Mechanical Engineers, while the other is organized by Mathematicians. The particular structure of this conference aims to enforce a stronger interaction between researchers from both communities, hopefully contributing to a successful exchange of scientific knowledge.

    Research in Options 2017

    Period: 25/Nov - 30/Nov

    The use of sophisticated mathematical tools in financial engineering ranging from partial differential equations to stochastic analysis and numerical methods has been growing steadily during the past few decades. On the one hand, the mathematical tools and results have impacted the way financial phenomena are modeled and understood, and how risk is assessed and managed. On the other hand, the financial industry has been presenting a number of mathematical and computational challenges to researchers.
