Faculty and students of the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering have been substantively involved in organizing the following conferences:
Modern Massive Data Sets (MMDS) 2008 (June 25-28, 2008):
This is a Stanford-hosted conference organized by Michael Mahoney (Yahoo! Research), Lek-Heng Lim (University of California, Berkeley), Petros Drineas (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute), and Gunnar Carlsson (Stanford University). It deals with algorithms suitable to the analysis of modern massive data sets.
Symposium on Gene Golub's Legacy:
Matrix Computations, Foundation and Future (March 1, 2008):
This symposium, to honor Gene Golub's scientific contributions, was organized by Chen Greif (University of British Columbia) and Dianne O'Leary (University of Maryland), with assistance from Sou-Cheng Choi, Peter Glynn, Jim Lambers, and Michael Saunders.
Remembrances in Celebration of Gene Golub (February 29, 2008):
This event was organized by Leah Friedman, Jim Lambers, Walter Murray, and Margot Gerritsen.
Stanford 50 (March 29-31, 2007):
This conference, to review past accomplishments in scientific computing at Stanford, celebrate Gene Golub's 75th birthday, and contemplate the next 50 years of computational mathematics and numerical computing, was organized by Ding-Zhu Du (University of Texas at Dallas), Charbel Farhat, Walter Murray, Michael Overton (New York University), Haesun Park (Georgia Tech), Michael Saunders, and Jim Varah (University of British Columbia).
Modern Massive Data Sets (MMDS) 2006 (June 21-24, 2006):
Petros Drineas (RPI), Gene Golub, Lek-Heng Lim, and Michael Mahoney (Yahoo!) organized a conference at Stanford on algorithms suitable to the analysis of modern massive data sets.
The SVG Meeting: A Celebration (February 9-10, 2004):
A two-day workshop took place at Stanford University to celebrate the birthdays and accomplishments of Alan George, Michael Saunders, and Jim Varah, and was organized by Michael Friedlander (Argonne National Labs), Gene Golub, Chen Greif (University of British Columbia), and Esmond Ng (Lawrence Berkeley Lab).
