     DIMACS/CCICADA Interdisciplinary Series, Spring 2011

Dates: Held approximately every other Monday, 
       with additional talks scheduled at other times

Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Location: DIMACS, CoRE Bldg. Room 431, Rutgers Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ

Host: James Abello, abello at

Series Description

A forum for presentation and discussion of mathematical,
computational, and statistical questions of interest to the
DIMACS/CCICADA community. We expect the series to be of interest to
applied mathematicians, computer scientists, and statisticians, as
well as researchers and practitioners in engineering, bioinformatics,
epidemiology, political science, sociology, and the behavioral
sciences. Themes include but are not limited to:

    * machine learning and its applications
    * social network analysis
    * privacy and security
    * computer, communication and sensor networks
    * algorithmic analysis and visualization of large-scale, 
      unstructured, heterogeneous and/or streaming data
    * mathematical sciences models for applications of global 
      or national importance such as homeland security, climate
      change, healthcare, and critical infrastructure.
    * applications of discrete mathematics/theoretical computer 
      science to the social and behavioral sciences
    * risk modeling and assessment
    * information processing in biology
    * mathematical and computational epidemiology 

Talks will be given by members of the DIMACS/CCICADA community and by outside speakers.

Recommendations for speakers (and offers to speak) should be directed
to James Abello (abello at
