ICERM, Providence, Rhode Island
Semidefinite programming is playing an ever increasing role in many areas of computer science and mathematics, including complexity theory, approximation algorithms for hard graph problems, discrete geometry, machine learning, and extremal combinatorics.
This workshop will bring together researchers from these different fields. The goal is to explore connections, learn and share techniques, and build bridges.
University of Würzburg, Hubland Campus
The school is open to scientists and students interested in the calculus of variations and its applications.

Department of mathematics "G.Peano", University of Torino, TORINO (ITALY)
The School is mainly targeted at PhD students and young researchers working in the field of differential geometry. The aim is to expose participants to current research and point to applications.
At the heart of the school are two mini-courses, consisting of four 90' lectures each, that will start from the basics and reach the latest results.
Ilka Agricola (Marburg): "Non integrable geometries, torsion, and holonomy"
Thomas Friedrich (HU Berlin): "Dirac operators in Riemannian geometry"
Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran
The seminar will provide a forum for mathematicians worldwide and graduate students to present their latest results about all aspects of linear algebra and a means to discuss their recent researches with each other. The language of the presentation may be English or Farsi. For participating in the conference, the non-Iranian mathematicians may contact the chairman Prof. M. S. Moslehian.
Universität Ulm, Germany
The venue is at the University of Ulm. In the tradition of the previous conferences, this meeting provides an international forum for presentation and discussion of new results in the area of probability and statistics. The plenary speakers of the conference will be:
Jianqing Fan (Princeton)
Geoffrey Grimmett (Cambridge)
Jean-François Le Gall (Paris)
Alexandre Tsybakov (Paris)
Centre for Advanced Mathematics and Physics, National University of Sciences and Technology, H-12 Islamabad, Pakistan
The workshop will encompass a variety of topics but the main focus will remain on the graph theory and discrete optimization. It is our intention to convert this workshop into a memorable event through a variety of activities around various research themes and transform it into platform for discussion fueled by current research. We hope that this will help establish new collaborations and strengthen the old one, at the regional, national and international levels.
IMPA, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
A school on the topic of vortices in fluids, from classical Newtonian fluids, to complex fluids, to superfluids, and in superconductors. Opening event of the Thematic Program on Incompressible Fluid Mechanics, March-June 2014, at IMPA.
Kloster Heiligkreuztal, a monastary in Germany.
A 10 days spring school followed by a 3 days conference organized by Bernhard
Krötz and Eric M. Opdam. The lecturers are: Michel Brion, Dan Ciubotaru,

A thematic semester in algebraic geometry, in particular moduli spaces, under analytic, algebraic and arithmetic points of view.
In spring/summer 2014 a special algebraic geometry semester, in
particular on moduli spaces, will be organized by the labex Centre
Henri Lebesgue (CHL) - headed by the IRMAR dept. and the ENS in
Rennes, and by the LMJL dept in Nantes. This will consist of several
activities (schools, conferences, workshops, etc.) related broadly to
moduli spaces from analytic, algebraic and arithmetic points of view,
to be held in Rennes, Nantes, Angers and Brest. All the information
and subscription forms can be found on the website

The aims of the workshop are twofold: on the one hand, bringing together experts in the field of modular Iwahori-Hecke algebras in order to discuss recent developments; on the other hand, embedding the topic into a larger picture by comparing it with developments in the theory of related or similar modular algebras (e.g. modular Cherednik algebras), and by presenting techniques of potential future relevance (e.g. categorification).
A modular Iwahori-Hecke algebra is the Hecke algebra, with coefficients in a field of characteristic p, of an Iwahori-subgroup in the group G(F) of F-points a reductive group G over a local field F with residue characteristic p. More generally, one may replace the Iwahori subgroup by its maximal p-Sylow subgroup. These algebras have been studied systematically first by Marie-France Vigneras.

Random graphs, stochastic processes on graphs and algorithms for computations on these structures continue to play a dominant role in algorithmic research and discrete mathematics, with recent applications ranging from web search and recommendation engines to social networks and system biology.
LMS Northern Regional Meeting Followed by Series of Minicourses.
It will start with a one day LMS Northern Regional Meeting with three lectures aimed for a broad audience of nonspecialists. A series of minicourses covering various topics in analytic number theory and dynamics will follow in the next four days.
The aim of the Easter School is to bring researchers from both areas of Mathematics together and to provide ample opportunities for communication.
We invite PhD students and researchers from both analytic number theory and dynamics to attend this event. Accommodation and meals will be provided. Priority will be given to those who apply before 31 December 2013.

Some recent advances in the control of partial differential equations will be presented. The control subject is devoted to modifying a state by means of an external action (the control). Many applications will be considered, to physical, mechanical or biological models, and, in particular, to quantum systems.
Grand Hotel delle Terme Re Ferdinando, Ischia (Naples, Italy)
The meeting, organized by Università di Salerno together with Università di Milano and L'Aquila, will consist of talks given by invited speakers and a permanent poster session.
The scientific programme will be dedicated to the memory of David Chillag, on Thursday, and to the memory of Brian Hartley, on Friday.
Conference proceedings will be published.

Spectral graph theory, which studies how the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the graph Laplacian (and other related matrices) interact with the combinatorial structure of a graph, is a classical tool in both the theory and practice of algorithm design. The success of this approach has been rooted in the efficiency with which eigenvalues and eigenvectors can be computed, and in the surprisingly large number of ways that a graph's properties are connected to the Laplacian's spectrum---particularly to the value of its second smallest eigenvalue, λ2.
