Mathematical modeling and computation in areas such as biomathematics, mathematics of imaging and dynamical systems will be explored at the New York Conference on Applied Mathematics hosted by Rochester Institute of Technology’s Center for Applied and Computational Mathematics Oct. 17.

Researchers from New York, the northeast and Ontario will present their work in different areas of applied and computational mathematics. The one-day conference will be held 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. in RIT’s new Center for Student Innovation and will feature talks from university professors, students and researchers working in industry and government. The conference will strengthen connections between applied mathematicians and scientists working in the region.

Keynote talks will be delivered by Jacques Dumais, professor in the department of organismic and evolutionary biology at Harvard University, and Weiqing Ren, professor at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University.

Conference organizers are Anthony Harkin, Bernard Brooks and Jerry Yang, from RIT; Jae-Hun Jung, from University at Buffalo; Herb Kunze, from University of Guelph: Robert McCann, from University of Toronto; Uday Banerjee, from Syracuse University; and Alexander Vladimirsky, from Cornell University.
