Foundations of Computational Mathematics (FoCM) 2020

Simon Fraser University, Downtown Vancouver, Canada

June 15-24, 2020

FoCM 2020 is the latest edition of the conference series of the FoCM society. Its aims are to promote research at the interface of mathematics and computation, and to foster interaction between mathematics, computer science and other areas of computational science.

The plenary speakers are: Folkmar Bornemann, Sara van de Geer, Philipp Grohs, Alice Guionnet, Thomas Hales, Aicke Hinrichs, Kristen Lauter, Bojan Mohar, Sebastian Reich, Ed Saff, Carola Schoenlieb, Dan Spielman, Rekha Thomas, Caroline Uhler, Mariel Vazquez, Becca Willett, Sara Zahedi

FoCM features themed parallel workshops, each spanning a three-day period, with the conference comprising three periods in total. Workshop talks are primarily by invitation. There will be sessions during each of the three periods featuring contributed poster presentations.

Information about registration and contributed submissions will be announced shortly.
