Events of Interest

XVII International Conference on Hyperbolic Problems Theory, Numerics, Applications June 25-29, 2018 University Park, Pennsylvania, USA  

The objective of the conference is to bring together scientists with interests in the theoretical, applied, and computational aspects of hyperbolic partial differential equations and of related mathematical models. As has been done in the past, special effort will be made to provide partial funding to young scientists to enable them to attend the conference. http://www.hyp2018.psu.edu/

The Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS)
will host its fifth National Forum at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Reston VA on October 5-7. The focus and theme will be on building student success in the first two years of college math. Details about the forum with a schedule and listing of confirmed speakers are available at www.cbmsweb.org/Forum5/index.htm. Registration is now open and the web page has links to the online registration form and to the hotel reservation system.

The Heidelberg Laureate Forum: The 2nd Forum will take place from September 21-26, 2014. Junior scientists are invited to apply online for one of the 200 sought-after places until February 28 at https://application.heidelberg-laureate-forum.org/intern/start_start_for.php

The Heidelberg Laureate Forum invites highly accomplished representatives and distinguished scientific experts in the fields of mathematics and computer science (winners of the Turing Award, the Fields Medal, the Abel Prize and the Nevanlinna Prize) to come to Heidelberg for a week to meet 200 of the most excellent junior scientists from all over the world. Exchange, communication, inspiration and motivation – that is, networking with a brilliant specialist community – those are the ultimate objectives of the HLF.

IMA Special Workshop: WhAM! A Research Collaboration Workshop for Women in Applied Mathematics: Numerical Partial Differential Equations and Scientific Computing, August 12-15, 2014
Conference Website: http://www.ima.umn.edu/2014-2015/SW8.11-15.14

Description: Numerical partial differential equations (PDEs) are an important part of numerical simulation, the third component of the modern methodology for science and engineering, besides the traditional theory and experiment. In this workshop, cutting-edge numerical algorithms and their applications will be discussed. Each organizer will present a research project and lead a research group. They may also choose a junior co-leader, preferably someone with whom they do not have a long-standing collaboration, but who has enough experience to take on a leadership role. Other team members will be chosen from applicants and invitees. It is expected that each group will continue their project together and submit articles about their results to the conference proceedings.

The benefit of such a structured program with leaders, projects, and working groups planned in advance is based on the successful Women in Numbers (WIN) conferences and is intended to benefit all participants. Senior women will meet, mentor, and collaborate with the brightest young women in their field on a part of their research agenda of their choosing, and junior women and students will develop their network of colleagues and supporters and enter important new research areas, thereby improving their chances for successful research careers.

Inquiry Based Learning Workshops
offered through the Mathematical Association of America PREP program. Information about the workshops is available at www.iblworkshop.org

Workshop 1: Kenyon College, June 23-26, 2014, Gambier OH
Workshop 2: MathFest 2014, August 3-6, 2014, Portland OR
Recent research in mathematics education suggests that inquiry-based learning levels the playing field, notably for women in mathematics, whereas traditional instruction shows significant effect sizes based on gender. Links to this research area by Sandra Laursen, University of Colorado, et al, is provided at http://www.colorado.edu/eer/research/steminquiry.html


The International Congress of Women Mathematicians 2014 (ICWM 2014) is happy to announce the gathering of women in the mathematical sciences from around the world on August 12th (8am-5pm) and on August 14th (1pm-9pm) 2014 in Seoul, Korea (a two day conference). ICWM 2014 is an associated meeting of the 27th International Congress of Mathematicians 2014 (ICM 2014) which will be held from August 13-21, 2014 in Seoul, Korea.
    The meeting consists of seven invited colloquium talks by leading women mathematicians, a poster session on recent research results, and ICWM-Forum (a panel discussion session highlighting important issues surrounding women in the mathematical sciences). More information can be found on the meeting website: http://www.kwms.or.kr/icwm2014. Registration for the meeting will begin on February 10, 2014 through the meeting website. Applications for the poster session presentation will also be accepted through the website at the same time.
