Algorithms and Complexity in Mathematics, Epistemology and Science

6-8 May 2015, London, Ontario, Canada.

ACMES is a multidisciplinary conference that focuses on a combination of the science of reliability and uncertainty quantification with conceptual and foundational issues concerning reliability in the application of scientific theories to real phenomena. The conference integrates longer talks from six leading computational scientists and philosophers of science with shorter computational research contributions from others, including graduate students, in computational science and epistemology of science. ACMES will be held at Western University in London, ON, Canada from May 6-8 2015 and will be held in conjunction with Southern Ontario Numerical Analysis Day (SONAD). Graduate students are particularly encouraged to contribute and attend.
Invited Speakers
   Anouk Barberousse Université Lille 1, France (History and Philosophy of Science)
   Robert Batterman University of Pittsburgh, USA (Philosophy of Science)
   Max Gunzburger Florida State University, USA (Applied Mathematics)
   Ursula Martin Oxford University, UK (Computer Science)
   Jesús Sanz-Serna Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain (Applied Mathematics)
   Mark Wilson University of Pittsburgh, USA (Philosophy)
