Mon, 04/24/2017 - 13:00 961215 961215 New mathematics for a Safer World: Wave Propagation in Heterogeneous Materials There are safety critical structures all around us such as nuclear plants, aircraft, gas pipelines, bridges and railway tracks. They are safety critical since any failure is potentially catastrophic. To avoid such disasters these structures are checked periodically for the presence of flaws and other precursors to the component failing (this is called non-destructive testing). This is performed at various stages in the lifetime of the component: at the manufacturing stage, periodically while the component is in service, and to assess the component for remanufacturing at the end of its lifetime. Safety has become more pressing of late as many of these structures are operating well beyond their intended lifespan. To address this problem there have been rapid developments in the types of ultrasonic sensors that are used to find these flaws and cracks. These sensors produce massive data sets and therefore require a matched development in the mathematical algorithms used to extract the knowledge from this data. To enable this development this workshop will bring together leading mathematicians, engineers (and other disciplines) in the field who can present the current state of the art techniques, the open problems, and the opportunities. This workshop will serve as the catalyst for new collaborations and new research directions in mathematics.

Mon, 04/24/2017 - 12:45 960254 960254 The 2nd International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Robots (AIR 2017) The 2nd International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Robots (AIR 2017) will be held from June 18-20, 2017 in Hangzhou, China. This Conference will cover issues on Artificial Intelligence and Robots. AIR 2017 is sponsored by Engineering Information Institute, Open Access Library, Scientific Research Publishing, and 1000thinktank. It dedicates to creating a stage for exchanging the latest research results and sharing the advanced research methods. Hangzhou, is the capital and largest city of Zhejiang Province in Eastern China. Governed as a sub-provincial city, and as of 2010, its entire administrative division or prefecture had a registered population of 8.7 million people. It was the capital of the Wuyue Kingdom from 907 to 978 during the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms Period. Named Xifu at the time, it was one of the three great centers of culture in southern China during the tenth century, along with Nanjing and Chengdu. Leaders of Wuyue were noted patrons of the arts, and especially of Buddhism and associated temple architecture and artwork. It also became a cosmopolitan center, drawing scholars from throughout China and conducting diplomacy not only with neighboring Chinese states, but also with Japan, Korea, and the Khitan Liao Dynasty. We look forward to seeing you in Hangzhou!
