INI/WIMCS Joint Follow-Up Meeting On Computational Challenges in PDEs

Swansea (UK), 4th-8th April 2011

The research programme on Computational Challenges for Partial Differential

Equations was held at the Isaac Newton Institute (INI) in Cambridge between

January and July in 2003. The programme resulted in important contributions

to the fields of adaptivity and error control, the construction and

mathematical analysis of multiscale numerical algorithms, the approximation

of high-dimensional PDEs and the mathematical analysis of numerical

algorithms for general PDEs.

Building on the success of this programme, the INI and the Wales Institute

of Mathematical and Computational Sciences (WIMCS) are jointly organising a

one week follow-up meeting in 2011. The meeting will consist of 32 invited

contributions in the areas of multiscale modelling, interface modelling,

PDEs on surfaces and geometric evolution problems, biomedical applications,

computational rheology, atomistic to continuum passage, low order modelling

and uncertainty modelling.

Perspectives joint conference taking place the week before ICIAM 2011.

The first (optional) day of the workshop will consist of a set of tutorials=

on

techniques -- such as version control -- that can improve reproducibility a=

t

the personal level: your ability to replicate your own results weeks, month=

s or

years later.

The middle two days will feature a talks by participants on technical and

non-technical aspects of scientific software development and dissemination.

The final day will feature a community forum on topics related to dissemina=

ting

reproducible research and in particular the roles that journals and funding

agencies can play.

The main workshop (first three days) has room for roughly 40 people, but we

have reserved space for people who apply to attend. In particular, we welc=

ome

applications from graduate students or postdoctoral fellows and from

under-represented groups in the mathematical sciences. Some funding may be

available from the NSF to help support participants from the US, particular=

http://www.cc.gatech.edu/dimacs10/

On behalf of the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer

Science DIMACS, the organizing committee invites participation in an

Implementation Challenge focusing on Graph Partitioning and Graph

Clustering. The Implementation Challenge starts in February 2011 with the

collection of testbeds. Participants are invited to carry out research

projects related to the problem area and to present research papers at the

Challenge's workshop to be held in Atlanta (Georgia, USA) on February 13/14=

,

2012. Refereed proceedings will be published in the AMS-DIMACS book series.

The goals of the Implementation Challenge are (i) to determine how algorith=

ms

depend on the structure of the underlying data sets, (ii) to determine

realistic algorithm performance, and (iii) to obtain a reproducible picture=

of

the state-of-the-art in the area of graph partitioning and graph clustering

algorithms. To this end we are identifying a standard set of benchmark

instances and generators. We invite researchers from various application ar=

eas

to provide interesting data sets for graph partitioning and graph clusterin=

g

problems. Contributions could consist either of sample data sets from a tru=

e

application or of realistic instance generators resembling practical data

sets. Also, we invite the specification of interesting objective functions

based on real-world applications. Our goal is to construct a modern library=

of

test problems reflecting current input sizes.

All information on the Challenge is available on the Challenge website

above. To register for the Challenge, please send an email to

stochastic parameterization of the effects of meso-scale eddies, techniques=

Ensemble methods will be used to investigate the predictability of the Kuro=

shio

path transitions, including a study of the impact of specific observations,=

in

deterministic and stochastic models. The postdoc in Groningen will concentr=

ate

on the stochastic parameterization of meso-scale eddies and the numerical

techniques to tackle the stochastic partial differential equations efficien=

tly.

Candidates should hold a PhD-degree in applied mathematics or physics; have=

a

good knowledge of numerical mathematics, especially for CFD; have good

programming skills; preferably have experience with stochastic analysis and

oceanography; have demonstrated a potential to carry out creative and

systems offer.

This position will focus on developing a heterogeneous computing framework

optimization techniques for multi- and many-core CPU-GPU interactions,

multi-level caching, etc, which are issues that still need to be addressed =
