Approximation Theory 16
May 19 — 22, 2019
This meeting will be the sixteenth in a series of international conferences on Approximation Theory held every three years at various locations in the U.S. The first was held in Austin, Texas in 1973, with later ones in Austin (1976, 1980, 1992), College Station (1983, 1986, 1989, 1995), Nashville (1998), St. Louis (2001), Gatlinburg (2004), and San Antonio (2007, 2010, 2013, 2016).
These meetings have traditionally been the main general international conferences on this topic for over 45 years, and have been well attended by mathematicians from academia, industry, and government. As with the previous meetings, the objective of this conference is to provide a forum for workers in the field to meet and discuss current research. The meeting will feature eight plenary speakers who will give one-hour survey lectures on topics of special current interest. There will also be a number of minisymposia, as well as sessions for contributed papers. Here is a list of topics of interest.
We would like to encourage everyone to actively participate in the conference by giving a talk or organizing a minisymposium, or both. For more information, see Talks. We plan to publish a proceedings volume based on papers presented at the meeting. On the social side, there will be a reception on Sunday, May 19, and a (ticketed) conference dinner on Tuesday, May 21.
If you plan to give a talk at the meeting, you must submit an abstract by May 1, 2019. To be included in the scientific program of the conference, you must also register online, and we must receive payment of your registration fees by that date.
If you would like to attend the conference, but do not plan to give a presentation, we suggest that you register online rather than waiting until you get to the meeting. This will help us with organizing various conference events, and will allow us to have your badge and program materials ready when you arrive. It will also give you a discounted registration fee.
