Workshop on Particle Methods and Data Assimilation

Venue: Imperial College London, ICSM Building, EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training hub, Room 402, Level 4 North

Date: Tuesday 8th May 2018 – Thursday 10th May 2018

Summary: The workshop aims to cover aspects of particle methods and data assimilation. This includes theory, methodology and applications. The aim to bridge gaps in understanding of the properties of popular methods and to address the fundamental challenge of designing effective particle methods for high dimensional data assimilation problems.

Organising/Scientific Committee: Colin Cotter, Dan Crisan, Nikolas Kantas and Darryl Holm

Registration: please register here.

Schedule: the tentative programme can be downloaded here.

The workshop is partially funded by the EPSRC grant EP/N023781/1 entitled ”Variational principles for stochastic parameterizations in geophysical fluid dynamics” (PI Darryl Holm) and an ICL Dept. of Mathematics Platform grant (PI Nikolas Kantas).
