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/.

NSF Call for Proposals: Designing Materials to Revolutionize and Engineer our Future (DMREF)

Dear Colleague:

The Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) strongly encourages mathematicians and statisticians to participate in the 2014 NSF activity Designing Materials to Revolutionize and Engineer our Future (DMREF).

DMREF is the main program by which NSF participates in the Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) for Global Competitiveness [1], a national materials initiative.  MGI recognizes the importance of materials science to the well-being and advancement of society and aims to “deploy advanced materials at least twice as fast as possible today, at a fraction of the cost.”  It integrates all aspects of materials design, including materials discovery, development, property optimization, systems design and optimization, certification, manufacturing, and deployment, with each employing the toolset that is being developed within the materials innovation infrastructure.  The toolset will integrate synergistically advanced computational methods and visual analytics with data-enabled scientific discovery and innovative experimental techniques, aiming to revolutionize the approach to materials research and engineering.

DMREF comprises well-coordinated activities involving the Directorates of Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS), Engineering (ENG), and Computer & Information Science & Engineering (CISE).  For further details and participating divisions please see NSF 14-020, the broadly aimed Dear Colleague Letter about DMREF in fiscal year 2014 [2].  As described in that Letter, success in the initiative requires a collaborative, synergistic, iterative approach that shows interactions among theory, computation, and experiments.  This approach is the central principle of MGI.  DMREF proposals will be reviewed jointly by the appropriate participating divisions.  Adherence to the aims and principles of MGI will facilitate this joint review.
