Can social issues be solved by mathematical science? -attempts and challenges

October 26 at 10:00 - 17:00, 2021

Dr. Tetsuo Hatsuda (Program Director, iTHEMS)
Dr. Masato Wakayama (Vice President, Tokyo University of Science)
Prof. Takashi Sakajo (Professor, Department of Mathematics, Kyoto University)
Prof. Shingo Iwami (Professor, Division of Biological Science, Graduate School of Science, Nagoya University)
Dr. Hirotaka Irie (Assistant Manager, DENSO Corporation)

In recent years, the importance of mathematical sciences has been increasingly recognized in various fields, as exemplified by the rapid progress of AI technology and the development of DX (Digital Transformation) in companies. In academia, research centers have been established in fields such as space, materials, life, and medicine, where experts in the mathematical sciences play an important role in research activities in their respective fields. At the same time, the universality of mathematics and the quantitative and predictive nature of data analysis are also being considered useful in industry, and some companies are actively using mathematical science in their own business. Some companies are actively utilizing mathematical science in their business. In this symposium, researchers who are conducting research with the mission of returning research using mathematical science to society and implementing it will gather to discuss, based on the results of their cutting-edge research, "Can social issues be solved with mathematical science? -Attempts and Challenges" and discuss the role of mathematical science in society.

The 7th International Symposium on Data Assimilation (ISDA2019)

January 21 - 24, 2019

The symposium will focus on the cross-cutting issues shared in broad applications of data assimilation from geoscience to various physical and biological sciences. In particular, the symposium will enhance discussions among researchers with various background on, for example, non-Gaussian and nonlinear data assimilation problems, Big Data Assimilation (BDA), high-performance computation (HPC), Uncertainty Quantification (UQ), advanced intelligence (AI) and machine learning, multi-scale and multi-component treatments, observational issues, and mathematical problems.

International Symposium on Quantum Fluids and Solids (QFS)

July 25 - 31, 2018

The International Symposium on Quantum Fluids and Solids (QFS) will be held at Ito International Research Center (IIRC) on Hongo campus of the University of Tokyo, Japan, from July 25 through 31, 2018. One of the sponsors of this conference is iTHEMS. The QFS series started forty-three years ago making it one of the oldest series of international conferences in the field of low temperature physics. It has historically been focusing on physics of liquid and solid helium and hydrogen. But in this century its scope is expanding widely from laser cooled cold atoms to topological matters. At QFS2018 in Tokyo, this trend will be continued and with even more interdisciplinary aspects emphasized between the traditional subjects and those in broader physical systems.

Interdisciplinary symposium on modern density functional theory

June 19 - 23, 2017

Density functional theory (DFT) is one of the most widely used methods for quantum many-body problems in condensed matter, nuclear physics, and quantum chemistry. Although we share similar theoretical frameworks and computational techniques, we sometimes use quite different languages, which sets a certain barrier for efficient interdisciplinary collaborations on modern DFT, in particular, that powered by High Performance Computing Infrastructure (HPCI). The key idea of this symposium is to have intensive interdisciplinary discussions and to initiate a new collaboration platform, in particular, by introducing the basic methodology and highlighting the latest hot topics in the fields condensed matter, nuclear physics, and quantum chemistry. iTHEMS-AICS-RNC-U.Tokyo joint symposium
