2016 Data Science Day
2013 Conference to Honor Thomas Thompson and Ken Wiggins
KRV, with some other WWU alumni, organizing a conference to honor Tom Thompson and Ken Wiggins. The conference is a one day celebration of the large impact that these two have had on generations of students at Walla Walla University. It will be held on May 17, 2013 at Walla Walla University.
2012 Graduate Summer School
We are holding our summer school in Moscow, Idaho this year.
Past workshops and Summer Schools
While at Los Alamos, Vixie and Asaki organized several conferences and workshops, including the 2002 Image analysis workshop at Los Alamos, the 2005 Graduate Summer School at IPAM/UCLA, and the 2007 Summer School at Los Alamos. For the courses before arrival at WSU, see Vixie's page of past classes.
Here are a few links for workshops and summer schools from 2008 onwards:
Summer 2009, a summer school was organized at WSU involving 7 students and 3 faculty (one from Los Alamos). The work accomplished resulting in 2 papers (one accepted and one still being prepared) and results for 2 conference talks and 1 poster.
March 24th, 26th 2010 IR spectroscopy Interpretation Workshop: Members from the CGAD team and a visiting student participated in a two day workshop to interpret spectroscopy data provided by a student in the Food Science department at WSU. Workshop 1: March 2010
Summer 2010, the whole team participated in the Park City Mathematics Institute, which this summer was focused on image processing. PCMI tends do a very poor job of keeping information about past summer schools available, so here is a bit of detail about our part. First, here is the syllabus: UFP_Syllabus.pdf. We ended up with an excellent group of about 22-23 faculty many with expertise in geometric analysis and geometric measure theory. (The actual number is not easy to reconstruct, partly because PCMI has no permanent, easily accessible record and partly because the membership of the various threads is quite fluid. Our number of participants was about 50% higher they they had ever had before.) Here is what passes as PCMI's permanent record of the summer school: http://pcmi.ias.edu/2010/.
May 9th,10th,11th, 2011 RRL Image Analysis Workshop: Members from the CGAD team and two visiting professors will participate in a three day workshop to consider the problem of automating the process of classifying vegetation types from aerial photographic data and limited ground observations using data provided by biologists at Red Rocks Lakes National Wildlife Refuge. Workshop 2: May 2011
June 6th,7th,8th, 2011 c. elegans Video Analysis Workshop: Members from the CGAD team and some visiting professors and students will participate in a three day workshop analyzing video data of c. elegans provided by Matt Sottile of Galois Inc. Workshop 3: June 2011
