Tutorial speakers (5hr each):

Alison Etheridge (University of Oxford) Modelling evolution of spatially distributed populations

Steve Evans (University of California at Berkeley) Metagenomics and metrics on spaces of probability measures

Elchanan Mossel (University of California at Berkeley) Reconstruction of Markov processes and networks in phylogenetics and genetics

and this:

Tutorial speakers (5hr each):

Chris Cannings (University of Sheffield) Evolutionary conflict theory

Persi Diaconis (Stanford University) Limits of graphs and networks

Rick Durrett (Duke University) Cancer modeling

Susan Holmes (Stanford University) Phylogeny, trees and the human microbiome

I'm registered for both of these and hope to learn something and meet some interesting people. I've already met Persi Diaconis, who ran away from home to travel with sleight-of-hand magician Dai Vernon, promised himself that he'd return to school one day so that he could learn all of the math necessary to read William Feller's An Introduction to Probability Theory and Its Applications, and later got a Ph.D. at Harvard. He gave my wife a copy of a paper where he'd computed the probability of getting any one of the 64 I Ching hexagrams by traditional yarrow stalk divination. So, it'll be cool to see him doing some serious math.

I added Mathematics of planet Earth 2013 http://www.mpe2013.org, though it is an organized activity scattered through several institutes. It has organizing committee etc. With the support of the International Mathematical Union (IMU) and the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI).

John, will you be involved ?

Zoran: I wrote about Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013 here, asking if anyone was interested in writing a proposal with me for a project at CRM, and talking about something vaguely related I'll be doing at CRM in 2012.

I also posted this comment/question to the Azimuth circle on Google+.

We'll see what happens!
