Subject: Call for Proposals, Gene Golub SIAM Summer School 2011

SIAM is calling for letters of intent for possible proposals of topics and
organizers for the Gene Golub SIAM Summer School (G2S3) for approximately 50
graduate students to be held at the University of British Columbia, in
Vancouver, during the two weeks prior to ICIAM, i.e., July 3-15, 2011.
This SIAM summer school will be co-sponsored by PIMS, the Pacific Institute
for the Mathematical Sciences. SIAM has budgeted US$50,000 and PIMS has
awarded CAN$25,000 towards the G2S3 2011.

Information about the G2S3 program can be found at
and about the G2S3 2010 at

Letters of intent should include the names of the organizers and a summary of
any previous organizing experience; a proposed title for the summer school;
tentative course topics and lecturers (indicating whether these people have
already been contacted); possible sources for additional funding, if
needed; (optional) preliminary budget. No registration fee shall be charged to
the students, and the bulk of the funds shall be budgeted for students'

The topic of the school is open to any area of applied mathematics,
computational science, and industrial mathematics. Numerical Linear Algebra is
the topic of 2010, and is expected to be the topic of 2013, so preference will
be given to other themes that have a computational component.
The courses are expected to be at the research level
and cover topics not usually found in regular university courses.

The organizers who are awarded the right to organize G2S3 2011 will be
responsible for inviting and confirming the lecturers, setting the schedule,
working with SIAM to solicit applications from students, evaluating the
applications and notifying applicants of the outcome. They will be working
with SIAM and PIMS to ensure that the allocated budget is not exceeded, and
to ensure that the appropriate local arrangements are made in a timely
fashion, that the necessary information is available on the web when needed,
and that all participants are kept appropriately informed about arrangements.

Letters of intent should be sent to Linda Thiel,, preferably
in pdf format, no later than January 31, 2010. Full proposals will be due on
March 31, 2010. For questions or informal inquiries, please contact
the G2S3 committee chair, Daniel Szyld,, +

Subject: New book: Games, Puzzles, and Computation

Games, Puzzles, and Computation
Robert A. Hearn, Erik D. Demaine
The authors detail underlying mathematical reasons for why games and
puzzles are challenging (and perhaps why they are so much fun). They
also show that games and puzzles can serve as powerful models of
computation-quite different from the usual models of automata and
circuits-offering a new way of thinking about computation. The
appendices provide a substantial survey of all known results in the
field of game complexity, serving as a reference guide for readers
interested in the computational complexity of particular games, or
interested in open problems about such complexities.

Subject: New book, Mathematical Modeling of Biosensors

New book: Mathematical Modeling of Biosensors.
An Introduction for Chemists and Mathematicians,
by R. Baronas, F. Ivanauskas and J. Kulys
(Springer Series on Chemical Sensors and Biosensors , Vol. 9),
2010, XIX, 334 p., Hardcover
ISBN: 978-90-481-3242-3

Biosensors are analytical devices incorporating a biological material,
usually an enzyme, and a physicochemical transducer converting a
biochemical recognition event into a measurable effect. They are
widely applied to environment monitoring, food analysis, clinical
diagnostics, drug analysis and some other purposes.
Biosensors are modelled by non-linear reaction–diffusion equations.

The book starts with the modelling of the biosensors by analytical
solution of partial differential equations. Historically this method
was used to describe fundamental
features of biosensors action though it is limited by substrate
concentration, and is applicable for simple biocatalytical processes.
The main (2nd) part of the book is dedicated to the modelling of
biosensors by numerical solution of nonlinear reaction-diffusion
problems using the finite difference technique. This part contains
mathematical models of amperometric, potentiometric and optical
biosensors. A special emphasis is placed to modeling biosensors
utilizing a complex biocatalytical conversion and biosensors with
multipart transducers geometry and biocatalytical membranes structure.
The final (3rd) part of the book is dedicated to the basic concepts of
the theory of the difference schemes for the digital solving of linear
diffusion equations which are
basis for biosensors modeling.

The book can be recommended for the master and doctoral studies as
well as for special studies of computational modelling of chemical,
biochemical as well as electrochemical systems. The Part 3 can also
be used for independent study of digital solution of differential

Subject: Dynamic Data Driven Applications Systems, Amsterdam, May 2010

DDDAS 2010, May 31 - June 2, 2010 (part of ICCS 2010, Amsterdam)

This workshop covers several aspects of the Dynamic Data Driven Applications
Systems (DDDAS) concept, which is an established approach defining a
symbiotic relation between an application and sensor based measurement
systems. Applications can accept and respond dynamically to new data
injected into the executing application. In addition, applications can
dynamically control the measurement processes. The synergistic feedback
control-loop between an application simulation and its measurements opens
new capabilities in simulations, e.g., the creation of applications with new
and enhanced analysis and prediction capabilities, greater accuracy, longer
simulations between restarts, and enable a new methodology for more
efficient and effective measurements. DDDAS transforms the way science and
engineering are done with a major impact in the way many functions in our
society are conducted, e.g., manufacturing, commerce, transportation, hazard
prediction and management, and medicine. The workshop will present such new
opportunities as well as the challenges and approaches in technology needed
to enable DDDAS capabilities in applications, relevant algorithms, and
software systems. The workshop will showcase ongoing research in these
aspects with examples from several important application areas. All related
areas in Data-Driven Sciences are included in this workshop.

Subject: Infinite & Infintisemal in Math, Computing, Science, Italy, May 2010

Infinite and Infinitesimal in Mathematics, Computing, and Natural Sciences
17-21 May 2010, Grand Hotel San Michele, Cetraro, Italy

The goal of the Workshop is to create a multidisciplinary round table for an
open discussion on modelling nature by using traditional and emerging
computational paradigms. Mathematics and natural sciences offer discrete and
continuous models to describe space, processes, and events occurring in
nature. Very often both approaches use notions of infinite and infinitesimal
in order to create coherent models. It is assumed that it is possible to work
with infinitesimal quantities and/or to execute an infinite number of steps in
algorithms. However, our abilities in computing are limited and only a finite
number of computational steps can be executed by humans and machines.

The Workshop will discuss all aspects of the usage of infinity and
infinitesimals in mathematics, computing, philosophy, and natural sciences.
Fundamental ideas from theoretical computer science, logic, set theory, and
philosophy will meet requirements and new fresh applications from physics,
chemistry, biology, medicine, and economy. Researchers from both theoretical
and applied sciences are very welcome to submit their papers and to use this
excellent possibility to exchange ideas with leading scientists from different
research fields. Papers discussing new computational paradigms and their
impact on natural sciences are particularly solicited.

There will be tutorials, discussion sections, and regular presentations.
