Sparse Days Meeting 2013

Sparse Days Meeting 2013 at CERFACS, Toulouse
June 17th-18th, 2013

 

The annual “Sparse Days at CERFACS” will take place on the 17th and 18th of June, just before the Preconditioning 2013 meeting at Oxford.
We intend to finish formal proceedings on the Tuesday in time to allow participants to catch the evening flight from Toulouse to London Heathrow.
The Sparse Days meeting will be similar in format to previous years.
No invited speakers and all talks in plenary session. As it is before the preconditioning meeting, we might expect an emphasis on associated areas, but contributions on any aspects of sparsity are welcome. In particular, talks on sparse optimization and on data assimilation would fit well with some of the current research at CERFACS.


Registration (Deadline : April 30th)

There is no registration fee and a limited amount of very low cost accommodation is available on site at the Meteo residences.

Registration and requests for accommodation should be sent to Brigitte Yzel (brigitte.yzel@cerfacs.fr).
The deadline for doing this is 30 April 2013. However, it will help greatly with our planning if you can let us know in advance of that deadline that you plan to come.

Titles and abstracts for presentations of 30 minutes (although you can offer a shorter talk if you wish) should be sent to Xavier Vasseur (vasseur@cerfacs.fr). The deadline is the same (30 April) but these can be sent later than the registration.

Young PhD day (JDD) – Thursday 8 October 2020

Brigitte Yzel |  24 September 2020

  Ph.D. Students' Day (JDD 2020) Thursday 8 October 2020 Virtual event open to our partners and associates   Planning   The 2020 edition of the PhD Students' Day will take place on October 8th, 2020. This year, this day of the PhD students of the Cerfacs, will take place mainly in visio in order to respect all the health safety measures relating to Covid-19. This day will be held in a virtual way through oral presentations filmed and broadcast on a private link, which we will distribute to all participants. Everyone will thus be able to discover at a distance the subjects developed by the doctoral students. At the same time, the "Posters session" will be opened on the morning of the JDD, by sending all the posters in pdf format by e-mail to all the participants for consultation, and by opening the "50-minute question session" on a channel whose links we will send you. This will allow participants to ask questions about the posters of the session. Finally, we have included in this 5th edition a great novelty, by allowing several students to present their subject in the popularised form of "My thesis in 3 minutes", guided by Matthieu Pouget, actor and theatre director. This day will end with the vote for the "Best poster" and the "Best presentation of My thesis in 3 minutes". Participation in the event is free of charge. However, for logistical reasons, registration, only by invitation, is mandatory.   Organising Committee:  Scientific committee  Nicolas Venkovic Victor Xing Inscription &  information Jade Schweiger Brigitte Yzel  Read more


Sparse Days 2020, Cerfacs

Brigitte Yzel |  24 September 2020

Sparse Days Meeting 2020  23 - 24 November 2020 Virtual Workshop   The annual Sparse Days meeting will be held this year as a virtual event, on 23 - 24 November 2020. Sadly, because of the pandemic, we will not be able to have a normal face-to-face Sparse Days at Cerfacs this year. We will be holding an online version from 3pm to 7pm on 23 and 24 November. The timing is chosen to accommodate participants from North America since, at normal Sparse Days, we have a good representation from there. A registration form  is available on this conference website where you can also submit a title and an abstract for any proposed talk. We will probably be using the Webex system and will post details about how to connect to all people who register.Read more
