Extension of Deadline  to August 5, 2016:  The 4th Workshop on Sparse Grids and 
Applications - Miami, Florida, October 4-7, 2016. 

Following the highly successful workshops on Sparse Grids and Applications: SGA 
2011 in Bonn, Germany, SGA 2012 in Munich, Germany, and SGA2014 in Stuttgart, 
Germany, the 4th workshop on Sparse Grid and Applications will take place October 
4-7, 2016 in Miami, Florida, USA. The workshop is co­-sponsored by Oak Ridge National 
Laboratory, and the Office of Science, Advanced Simulation Research Computing (ASCR), 
at the Department of Energy.

The workshop will take place in the ballroom of the Intercontinental Hotel. More 
information on the hotel can be found at: http://www.icmiamihotel.com/. 
A block of rooms has been reserved at the InterContinental Miami for a rate of 
$148/night.  There is a $250 USD registration fee for both contributed talks and 
participants.

The aim is to bring together researchers and practitioners using sparse grids and 
their variants, and both theoretical and practical talks are highly welcome. Possible 
topics related to sparse grids and their applications include:
- spatially/dimensionally adaptive refinement
- complexities and error bounds
- wavelets
- high-order methods
- data mining (classification, regression, clustering, etc.)
- (stochastic) partial differential equations
- interpolation and quadrature
- parameter identification
- integral equations
- dimensionality reduction
- efficient/parallel data structures
- sparse grid software
- applications using sparse grids
- uncertainty quantification

Important dates:
- Abstract submission: August 5, 2016
- Registration (speakers and participants): Aug. 19, 2016
