Conferences and Workshops


Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF) The Heidelberg laureate Forum is an annual networking event that brings together laureates in the field of mathematics and computer science (Abel Prize, ACM A.M. Turing Award, ACM Prize in Computing, Fields Medal and Nevanlinna Prize.) and 200 carefully selected young researchers in these disciplines for a week in the mountainous city of Heidelberg.


Deep Learning Indaba The Deep Learning Indaba is an initiative to strengthen African Machine Learning community by increasing African participation and contribution to the advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning, I was privilege to attend the Indaba 2019 held in Kenya (Nairobi).


ICIAM , Valencia 2019 The ICIAM serves as a showcase for the most recent advances in industrial and applied mathematics, covering interdisciplinary topics relating to mathematics and other disciplines and demonstrating the applicability of this discipline to science, engineering and industry. ICIAM is, again, a great opportunity for young researchers and graduate students to discover the vast potential of applied mathematics and get in touch with its most recent trends and topics.


SEAMS, 2019 The Software Engineering for Applied Mathematical Sciences Workshop extends the Principles course to include a hackathon during the second week. The topic focus and schedule for the first week remains largely the same, though there is an integrated development of a work plan for the hackathon. During the hackathon week, the schedule is more flexible. Participants meet with faculty on a regularly scheduled basis to check-in on how their plan is progressing, but they set that plan. The workshop wraps with participants demonstrating changes to their project’s engineering.


NEF, 2018 The Next Einstein Forum is an AIMS initiative in partnership with Robert Bosch Stiftung. NEF is focused on convening Africa’s innovators to highlight breakthrough discoveries and catalyse scientific collaboration for human development. Held every two years, the three-day forum will gather 500 leading scientists, policymakers, business leaders, journalists, civil society leaders, entrepreneurs and scientists to highlight talent and advance global breakthroughs.
