Dr. Hamidou Tembine is co-organizer of two invited sessions (Mean Field Games I and Mean Field Games II) at the 52nd IEEE Conference on Decision and Control, Firenze, Italy,  December 2013.​​


Prof. Raul Tempone will present the Uncertainty Quantification Center at the Institute of Computational Mathematics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He is an invited lecturer for a short graduate course (40 students) in Uncertainty Quantification.


Dr. Hamidou Tembine have been elevated to the grade of Senior Member of IEEE. This is considered a significant honor since only 8% of nearly 419,000 IEEE members are Senior Members because of their superior professional achievements. Please congratulate Tembine for this well deserved recognition of his important research contributions over the last years.​


Prof. Raul Tempone is an Invited lecturer at the Department of Mathematics, Indian Institute of Science Bangalore, India, for a short graduate course (50 students) in Uncertainty Quantification, July 8 to 19, 2013. 

Mohammad has accepted a tenure-track assistant professor position in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at The University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, to begin in Fall 2013.
