GSMMC 2013: Graduate Student Mathematical Modeling Camp

This is a paid announcement that appeared in SIAM News.

June 11–14, 2013
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at RPI is pleased to announce the 10th 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 26, 2013.

Graduate students attending the GSMM Camp are also invited to participate in the Mathematical Problems in Industry (MPI) Workshop, to be held at Worcester Polytechnic Institute during the week following the camp. For further information about MPI 2013, students should visit http://www.math.wpi.edu/MPI2013/.

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.

University of California, Merced

Graduate Studies in Applied Mathematics and Scientific Computation

The University of California is creating a dynamic new campus and community in Merced, California. UC’s tenth campus opened in September 2005, and is the first American research university built in the 21st century. From UC Merced, it is about a 2 hour drive to Yosemite National Park and to the San Francisco Bay Area.

UC Merced offers interdisciplinary research and training for MS and PhD students. Graduate studies in Applied Mathematics offers opportunities for students interested in multidisciplinary mathematics projects at the interface between life sciences, physical sciences, engineering and social sciences. Training emphasizes modeling, analysis, scientific computing, and the solution of real-world problems. All students admitted will be offered financial support including tuition waivers through a teaching or research assistantship. Applications received by December 15 will be considered for early admission and application fee waivers. All highly qualified applicants will be considered for the Chancellor’s Fellowship.
