Cascade RAIN Mathematics Meeting 2019

Welcome to the 6th Annual Cascade RAIN Meeting

April 13, 2019

University of Washington Bothell

The School of STEM at the University of Washington Bothell is pleased to welcome all participants to the 6th Annual Cascade Regional Applied Interdisciplinary and Numerical Mathematics (RAIN) Meeting. The meeting will be held at the UWB campus on Saturday, April 13, 2019 in Room UW2-240. Light breakfast will be available starting at 8:45, and official activities will begin at 9:30. The meeting will end before 5:30. Please see here for directions to campus and here for information about accommodations.

The RAIN Meeting is a gathering of researchers for rapid and informal communication of ongoing research activities in computational and applied mathematics in the northwest region. It is intended to complement the annual PNWNAS and biennial SIAM PNW Section meetings, which feature longer lectures by invited speakers. We encourage talks from graduate students, who may be able to receive travel support.

There is no registration fee, but participants are asked to register, for our planning and records.

Format: The RAIN Meeting begins with a call for speakers. Those planning to give a talk will write their name and talk title on a strip of paper that will be placed in a hat for a random draw that determines the talk order. The talk length is determined by the total available time divided by the number of speakers, with talk durations typically ranging between 10 and 15 minutes.

This format is similar to the Finite Element Circus, the Finite Element Rodeo, and the European Finite Element Fair. Reflecting the varied interests of our northwest participants, however, the RAIN Meeting is not limited to finite element talks.
