12th International Mathematica Symposium
January 12 - 14, 2015
Prague, Czech Republic

Jan Koutník

Talk: Deep Reinforcement Learning

Jan Koutník received his Ph.D. in computer science from the Czech Technical University in Prague in 2008. He works as machine learning researcher at The Swiss AI Lab IDSIA. His research is mainly focused on artificial neural networks, recurrent neural networks, evolutionary algorithms and deep-learning applied to reinforcement learning, control problems, image classification, handwriting and speech recognition.


The symposium will be held at the Lindner Hotel Prague Castle. The accommodation will be in the same place.

January 12-14, 2015 - Symposium

The International Mathematica Symposium is an interdisciplinary conference for and by users of Mathematica in the physical and life sciences, mathematics, engineering, graphics and design, arts and music, education, industry, finance, and commerce.

If you use Mathematica in research or teaching, or if you have developed or are developing products based on Mathematica, then IMS is an opportunity to share your results with like-minded colleagues. IMS has built up a deserved reputation as an exceptionally convivial and friendly gathering.

Michael Trott

Talk: Mathematical and scientific data in the Wolfram Language

Michael Trott studied physics at the Humboldt-University of Berlin and received his Ph.D. in theoretical solid state physics at the Technical University of Ilmenau, where he also taught physics. He has been a member of Wolfram Research since 1994. Since 2006 he has been involved in the development of Wolfram|Alpha. Currently he is the Chief Scientist of Wolfram|Alpha.

Christopher Carlson

Talk: Is There a Role for the Wolfram Language in Design and Architecture?

Christopher Carlson has long been creating components of the Mathematica experience, from interactive graphics to the “predictive interface” that anticipates user operations.  He currently concentrates on acquainting the world with the power of the Wolfram Language and helping move it off the desktop and into the cloud.

You are invited to submit abstracts (initial submissions) to the symposium. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

  1. Data-mining

  2. Machine Learning

  3. Computational Intelligence

  4. Engineering

  5. Calculus

  6. Geometry

  7. Statistics

  8. Combinatorics & Graphs

  9. Numerics & Functions

  10. High-performance Computing

  11. Image Processing

  12. Graphics & Visualization

  13. Physics & Chemistry

  14. Education

  15. Finance

We welcome abstracts for two kinds of submissions:

  1. Presentations with a publication in electronic proceedings - authors of accepted papers are entitled to give a 15 to 30 minute talk.

  2. We also welcome talks or workshops without subsequent publications. These should be given as Mathematica slideshows.

The form of abstract submission is a plain text. Abstracts will be reviewed by the Program Committee and the full papers, talks, or workshop tutorials will be requested if accepted. The full papers will be published in electronic symposium proceedings.
