Series Description

A forum for presentation and discussion of mathematical,
computational, and statistical questions of interest to the
DIMACS/CCICADA community and arising from research challenges in a
variety of disciplines. 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.
