Research Semester Programme

In 2022, CWI launches a Research Semester Programme which aims to create an environment in which researchers from Dutch universities can exchange ideas on specific topics on a regular basis. CWI aims for the generation of new insights with the launch of this programme and hopes to inspire new collaborations.

For autumn 2022, our Networks & Optimization research group (N&O) has put together a series of events. More info about their programme Polynomial Optimization and Applications can be found on this page.  Their poster can be downloaded in pdf-format.


For spring 2023, our Machine Learning (ML) research group will put together a Research Semester Programme about Machine Learning Theory.  The committee of this programme consists of Wouter Koolen-Wijksta and Peter Grünwald.

Our Computational Imaging research group (CI) kicked off the Research Semester Programme with a series of events about Data-driven methods for inverse problems. More information about the CI programme, which did run spring 2022, can be found here.

 

Below you'll find the Research Semester Programme events that have been scheduled up till now:

 

Workshop on Solving Polynomial Equations and Applications (Semester Programme)

05-10-2022 to 07-10-2022 CWI,
Polynomial equations are at the heart of many problems in pure and applied mathematics. This workshop will feature a friendly introduction to existing methods, presentations of the latest software tools and research talks by experts in the field. The focus will be on new trends and methodology, as well as applications in the sciences.

Workshop on Semidefinite and Polynomial Optimization (Semester Programme)

29-08-2022 to 02-09-2022 CWI,
This workshop is dedicated to recent developments in semidefinite and polynomial optimization, and their applications in combinatorial and continuous optimization, discrete geometry and quantum information. The program (under construction) will consist of invited lectures by experts in the field. It will also feature lectures by younger researchers and ample time will be left for free discussions.

FleXRay Lab 5 years anniversary (Semester Programme)

19-05-2022 from 13:30 to 18:00 CWI, Turing room,
In this symposium on the occasion of FleX-ray Lab’s five year anniversary, we will look back at some of the scientific highlights of the past years, and outline future plans. In addition, speakers from different scientific areas will illustrate how they use X-ray CT to answer research questions and what specific imaging challenges arise from their applications.
