UT Tyler to Host International Science, Math Conference

The University of Texas at Tyler will host an international conference to enhance research interactions among the computer science and mathematics fields, Dr. Arlene Horne, vice president for research and federal relations, announced.

“Interactions between Representation Theory, Quantum Field Theory, Category Theory, and Quantum Information Theory” will be Thursday through Sunday, Oct. 1 – 4 at the UT Tyler Ratliff Building South, room 2024. Experts from institutions and corporations will serve as speakers, including representatives from Texas A&M University, Oxford University and Moscow State University, as well as Microsoft, IBM and the United States Army and Air Force Research Labs. 

The National Science Foundation serves as sponsor.

UT Tyler faculty members Dr. Kazem Mahdavi, professor of computer science; Dr. Leonard Brown, assistant professor of computer science; and Dr. Deborah Koslover, assistant professor of mathematics, serve as co-organizers.

“Bringing a conference of this caliber to UT Tyler benefits everyone, not just the university,” said Mahdavi. “The conference will explore the connections between various theories in computer science, math and physics, which are interrelated and have motivated each other’s development.”

The conference is open to the public.

One of the 15 campuses of the UT System, UT Tyler offers excellence in teaching, research, artistic performance and community service. More than 90 undergraduate and graduate degrees are available at UT Tyler, which has an enrollment of more than 6,000 high-ability students at its campuses in Tyler, Longview and Palestine.
