Adapting Signal Recovery Algorithms for Accurate and Efficient Reaction Rate Calculations



October 28, 2020
Argonne National Laboratory
While widely successful, conventional TST is relatively simplistic and can lead to inaccurate rates for many classes of reactions. Alternative, more accurate rate theories such as variational transition state theory (VTST) are well established but incur exceptionally high computational costs, which limits their widespread use. Our goal is to lower these costs, thereby enhancing the reliability of rate predictions, by adapting algorithms typically used in signal processing and information recovery.

Dealing with COVID-19 in Theory and Practice


October 29, 2020
University of Chicago
The extraordinary impact of COVID-19 requires equally extraordinary measures, which are the focus of this workshop. Four major themes will be represented: Public Health Challenges, The Role of Data Science, Measuring and Managing Economic Impact, and The Path Forward. One unique aspect of this workshop is the breadth of participants, bringing together stakeholders from the most relevant communities, including biomedical experts, epidemiologists, public health officials, economists, business professionals, and bioethicists. One of the key objectives of this workshop is to encourage collaboration across disciplines that have practical impact in the near term.
