Events occurring rarely on the timescale of the system affect the system the most dramatically. Often they are associated with transitions from one metastable state to another. The study of rare events is of great importance and of great challenge as their direct simulation is exceedingly difficult due to long waiting times. In recent years, significant progress in studying rare events has been made due to the development of novel numerical tools based on adapting ideas from the realm of data science and machine learning as well as harnessing classical mathematical theories and ideas from theoretical chemistry. This in-person workshop will bring together scientists from various disciplines working on various aspects of the study of rare events and facilitate the exchange of ideas regarding theory, numerics, and diverse applications to problems in biology, chemistry, and physics.
We will have poster sessions and flash talks for a very selected number of graduate students and postdocs, as well as financial support for travel/accommodation. We will be soliciting applications for this later this year - please check this website and add your contact information TO THE FORM HERE to stay up-to-date when we start accepting applications. For any further information, please contact Pratyush Tiwary or Masha Cameron.
