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/.
Thanks to the MIT and Tufts SIAM Student Chapters for organizing volunteers to work at the registration desk at CSE13 in Boston. It was a huge meeting and the students really helped out (and got free registration to the conference!)
SIAM awarded a total of $38,901 to 83 chapters for activities taking place during the 2012-2013 academic year. Here is a sampling of the activities that SIAM chapters sponsored this year.
Cardiff University, Wales:
The First Annual SIAM Chapter Day held at Cardiff University on January 21 marked the formation of the first SIAM Student Chapter in Wales. The event brought together over 70 research students and faculty in mathematics and engineering, and offered a platform for discussions on a wide range of topics from computational accuracy to mathematical modeling in science and industry to engineering applications. The program included guest lectures by Nick Higham (University of Manchester), Alain Goriely (University of Oxford), Simon Cox (Aberystwyth University), and Matthew Gilbert (University of Sheffield), and poster presentations by doctoral students from Cardiff University and their guests from the Universities of Manchester, Aberystwyth, and Swansea. Lectures may now be downloaded at http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/maths/research/researchgroups/applied/siam/siamday2013.html Read the rest of this entry »

Department of Mathematics and Statistics Graduate Programs
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Old Dominion University invites excellent students to apply for graduate assistantships in its vigorous applied mathematics and statistics MS and PhD programs for the 2013–2014 academic year.
ODU faculty are active in various areas of applied and computational mathematics, scientific computing, analysis, and numerical analysis, and play key roles in the ODU multidisciplinary Modeling and Simulation Graduate Program and the Center for Computational Sciences in the College of Sciences. ODU faculty enjoy an excellent funding record, including funding by NSF, NIH, NASA, AFOSR, Army,and other federal and state funding agencies.
