Graduate Student Modeling (IMSM) Workshop, July 2018

North Carolina State University, July 15-25, 2018.

The 24th Industrial Mathematical & Statistical Modeling (IMSM) Workshop for Graduate Students will take place at North Carolina State University, between 15-25 July 2018. The workshop is sponsored by the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI) together with the Center for Research in Scientific Computation (CRSC) and the Department of Mathematics at North Carolina State University.

The IMSM workshop exposes graduate students in mathematics, engineering, and statistics to exciting real-world problems from industry and government. The workshop provides students with experience in a research team environment and exposure to possible career opportunities. On the first day, a Software Carpentry bootcamp will bring students up-to-date on their programming skills in Python/Matlab and R, and introduce them to version control systems and software repositories.

Local expenses and travel expenses will be covered for students at US institutions.
The application deadline is April 15, 2018.
Information is available at http://www.samsi.info/imsm-18
and questions can be directed to grad@samsi.info

With best regards,

EUCCO 2018 - deadline for contributions is extended to June 15.

We would like to draw your attention to the 5th European Conference on Computational Optimization - EUCCO 2018, taking place in Trier in from September 10 - 12, 2018.

The scope of this conference series is quite broad as it aims to bring together scientists from a diversity of subdisciplines, such as computational optimization, algorithms and applications. The upcoming conference will place special emphasis on certain aspects of optimization, found in the focus sessions, while still keeping its more traditional focus on large scale optimization, optimization with partial differential equations, and numerical optimization algorithms and software. More information can be found at https://alop.uni-trier.de/eucco2018/

Registration is still open!

Sparse Days

CERFACS, Toulouse, France, September 27-28, 2018.

Dear colleagues,

The annual Sparse Days meeting will be held at Cerfacs in Toulouse on 27th and 28th September 2018.

Registration for the Sparse Days is free but we ask people who are coming to register as soon as possible although the deadline is August 26th. Please complete the form on the website https://sparsedays.cerfacs.fr/en/ indicating whether you want to give a talk and whether you wish to attend the conference dinner. Although an emphasis will be on parallel aspects, any talk that has an association with sparsity is welcome. The length for a talk plus questions is 30 minutes although this is negotiable in either direction.

Information on accommodation can be found on the web page and a limited amount of free on site accommodation should be available for students. Students wanting to apply for this accommodation should contact Brigitte Yzel on yzel@cerfacs.fr.
