FFT 2010 will take place February 18 - 19, in the Department of Mathematics at Maryland, with talks to run all day Thursday and Friday. Thursday evening will end with a keynote address, followed by light dinner and drinks for all participants and friends of the Norbert Wiener Center.

Our Keynote Speaker on Thursday night will be William Noel, curator of Manuscripts and Rare Books at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, MD, which oversees the Archimedes Palimpsest Project. The text of the Palimpsest is of significant historical value, and the text retrieval process uses modern image processing and multispectral sensing. Dr. Noel is also the co-author of The Archimedes Codex: How a Medieval Prayer Book Is Revealing the True Genius of Antiquity's Greatest Scientist.

Thursday afternoon features a talk in our Norbert Wiener Center Distinguished Lecturer Series by Elias Stein, of Princeton University, and Friday afternoon will feature the Norbert Wiener Colloquium, by Charles Fefferman of Princeton University. The full list of confirmed speakers is available here.

In 2010, we shall continue to host a student poster session. More information is available at the poster information page. Limited support is available for interested graduate students and postdocs. If you have any questions, please contact Radu Balan.
