organisers invite contributions on any topic that combines
computational inference and computational partial differential
Computational PDEs is interpreted as including all the computational
technologies often employed for solving PDEs. A modern classical
combination of inference and PDEs is the application of statistical
inference to solving inverse problems in partial differential
equations, and we expect many leading international experts in this
area will be attending. We are particularly excited about recent
developments where methods for computational PDEs are being adapted to
create new algorithms for computational inference. Researchers in this
area are strongly encouraged to participate.

workshop will be
held in the Physics Department of the University of Otago, located at
730 Cumberland Street, Dunedin (talks in room 314).
The workshop will run in the mornings of January 18-20, 2010, leaving
plenty of time for local activities

There is no registration fee. Attendance of extra-workshop activities
such as a slap-up dinner and local sightseeing will incur a small cost.
Limited funds are available to assit New
Zealand participants in attending the workshop and
activities. Please contact Colin Fox
Researchers based outside New Zealand are welcome to participate in the
Registration is open: contact Colin Fox by email (fox 'at'

We are hoping that participants will take the time to enjoy the
beautiful environs of Dunedin, Otago, and the South Island of New
Zealand. We have a few activities lined up for participants:
tramp: On Sunday 17 January, Al Parker will be leading a
tramp (a hike) to some beautiful spot in the Dunedin environs. It
will be a relaxed affair. We encourage participants to come a day early
and get in touch with Al or Colin to be included.
- Taeiri Gorge railway trip: is planned
for the afternoon of Tuesday 19 January. Train leaves Dunedin railway station 2:30pm (be there in advance) and gets back 6:30 pm.
dinner: will be held the evening of Wednesday 20 January, from 5:30 pm in the University Staff Club.
Dunedin has a range of accomodation options for participants. We suggest the following (possibly eclectic) options:
- Living Space
has serviced appartments that are centrally located at not-a-bad price.
This is a good option for those looking to stay in Dunedin for a while
longer than the conference.
- Bluestone on George is a nice place to stay, if the rave reviews on TripAdvisor are true. I've never stayed there.
