Meetings of Interest

In the near horizon:
DIMACS and Sandia are running an invite-only Workshop on Streaming Graph Algorithms, Oct 23--24 at Sandia Labs. The program is not public yet but the version I know is exciting. I will be running an open problems session, trying to identify some broad trends and specific problems, within the context of streams of graph edges.

In a slightly longer horizon:
Indian Inst of Sc is running a Workshop on Learning, Algorithms and Complexity, Jan 5--9, at Bangalore. The speakers list is superb. If you are interested in participating, send an email to the organizers.

Sciences, Math and Arts

I am curating some art for a performance or display space, art that is hopefully in the intersection of Science/Math/Technology and Art. Please email or respond if you have a pointer. A triptych of videos below: Box (synthesis of real and digital space on moving surfaces), Sparked by Cirque (quadcopters in swirl), an animation about balance (an oldie, I watched it in early 90's).
