GSMMC 2014: Graduate Student Mathematical Modeling Camp

This is a paid announcement that appeared in SIAM News.

June 17–20, 2014
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at RPI is pleased to announce the 11th annual GSMM Camp. The camp is a four-day informal workshop in which graduate students work in teams on problems brought by invited faculty mentors. The problems, inspired by real problems that arise in industrial applications, span a wide range of mathematics and are designed to promote problem-solving skills while the team approach is designed to promote scientific communication.

Graduate students at all levels are invited to participate. General information and an online application form can be found at http://www.rpi.edu/dept/math/GSMMCamp/. Financial support for travel and local accommodations is available.  The application deadline is April 25, 2014.

Graduate students attending the GSMM Camp are also invited to participate in the Mathematical Problems in Industry (MPI) Workshop, to be held at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, June 23–27, 2014.  For further information about MPI 2014, students should visit http://web.njit.edu/~rmoore/MPI2014/.

RTG Summer School on Microlocal Analysis and Inverse Problems

This is a paid announcement that appeared in SIAM News.

July 8–26, 2013
University of Washington, Seattle
The Research Training Group in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Washington will host a summer school on solving inverse problems via microlocal analysis, aimed at graduate students and advanced undergraduates who have the required background. Students will attend lectures in the morning and problem sessions in small groups with mentors in the afternoon. On-campus accommodation and meals will be provided, plus a travel allowance of up to $600. The Summer School is supported by an NSF Research Training Grant. Support is restricted to U.S. citizens/permanent residents; international students can be considered but will have to pay all their own expenses.

The course will be taught by Mark Anastasio, Guillaume Bal, Francois Monard, Plamen Stefanov, and Gunther Uhlmann.

Prospective attendees can visit the website for a full course description and prerequisites.

Six outstanding students receive SIAM prizes for math and computing research

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM)’s Student Paper Competition selects the best paper submissions each year to recognize noteworthy research work and scholarship by students in applied mathematics and computing. The awards are made based solely on the merit and content of student contributions to the submitted papers. Winners of the SIAM Student Paper Prize are awarded a cash prize of $1000 each, a SIAM Student Travel Award, and a framed, hand-calligraphed certificate.

The 2011 prizes were awarded to Necdet Serhat Aybat (Pennsylvania State University, USA) for the paper, “Unified Approach for Minimizing Composite Norms;” Sungwoo Park (Knight Capital Group, USA) for “Portfolio Selection Using Tikhonov Filtering to Estimate the Covariance Matrix;” and Xiangxiong Zhang (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA) for a paper titled “On Maximum-Principle-Satisfying High Order Schemes for Scalar Conservation Laws.”

The 2012 prizes were awarded to Brittany D. Froese (Simon Fraser University, Canada) for “Convergent Finite Difference Solvers for Viscosity Solutions of the Elliptic Monge-Ampère Equation in Dimensions Two and Higher;” Stefanie Hollborn (Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany)  for the paper, “Reconstructions from Backscatter Data in Electric Impedance Tomography;” and Marina Moraiti (University of Pittsburgh, USA) for “On the Quasistatic Approximation in the Stokes-Darcy Model of Groundwater-Surface Water Flows.”

The prize recipients were in attendance to receive their awards at the Prizes and Awards Luncheon held Tuesday, July 10, and presented their winning papers in a Student Days session the following evening as part of the SIAM Annual Meeting in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
