MCQMC 2012

Just received today the announcement for the next MCQMC meeting, which will be the 10th International Conference on Monte Carlo and Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods in Scientific Computing (MCQMC 2012), taking place in Sydney from February 13 to 17, 2012.

MCQMC is a biennial conference devoted to Monte Carlo and quasi-Monte Carlo methods and their interactions and applications.  (In brief, quasi-Monte Carlo methods replace the random choices that characterize the Monte Carlo method by well chosen deterministic choices.)  For more information, click on the “Background” tab on the web site.  This will be the first MCQMC conference to be held in the southern hemisphere.  (Northerners may like to be reminded that February is summertime in Sydney!)

The invited plenary speakers for MCQMC are
* Pierre Del Moral (INRIA & University of Bordeaux 1, France)
