From: Marco Discacciati
Date: February 01, 2019
Subject: Computational Mechanics, UK, Apr 2019

The 2019 Conference of the UK Association for Computational Mechanics
(UKACM) will take place at City, University of London, 10th-12th April

The annual UKACM conference offers a forum for academics to present
their research on developments in computational mechanics, and it is
an ideal opportunity to foster ideas and to establish new
collaborative research links, helping to build strong research
networks within the UK and internationally.

Abstract submission is open until 15th February 2019.

For all details on registration and abstract submission, please visit
the conference website

From: Nail K. Yamaleev
Date: January 30, 2019
Subject: PhD Position, Numerical PDEs, Old Dominion Univ

Applications are invited for a PhD position in the research group of
Prof. Nail Yamaleev in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at
Old Dominion University (ODU). Current research areas in the group
include entropy stable schemes for the Navier-Stokes equations,
adjoint-based methods for PDE-constrained optimization problems, and
grid adaptation based on error minimization. We are looking for an
enthusiastic and highly-motivated PhD candidate with a B.S. or
M.S. degree in Mathematics or a closely related field. A solid
background in numerical methods and excellent programming skills are
required. This position will provide a unique opportunity to work on a
cutting-edge project in Dr. Yamaleev's group in collaboration with
research scientists of NASA Langley Research Center.

Interested candidates should apply for a graduate assistantship in
computational and applied mathematics at:

Subject: PhD Positions, Algorithmic Optimization, Trier Univ, Germany

The Research Training Group (RTG) Algorithmic Optimization, funded by
the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), invites applications for
several doctoral research positions (TVL 13, 75%) at Trier University
for the period of 3 years, starting in the first half of 2019. The
research topics are devoted to all mathematical aspects of algorithmic
optimization with an emphasis on applications, in particular in large
and big data as well as systems models from economics. The doctoral
research positions do not involve teaching duties. At the time of
hiring, applicants must hold a MSc degree (or equivalent) in
mathematics or a strongly related field. They should be able to
communicate in English and should document their interest in the
scientific goals of the research program of the research training
group (Graduiertenkolleg). Excellent programming skills are a plus.

Applications should include:
- letter of motivation (no longer than 2 pages)
- curriculum vitae
- a recent letter of reference (in English or German) to be sent
directly to the address given below
- contact information of at least one additional reference
- copies of earned degrees (in German or English translation)
- a mathematical writing sample (preferably the master's thesis)
- transcript of grades

Applications from researchers of all nationalities are welcome. Trier
University strives to increase the share of women in research and
strongly encourages women to apply. Trier University is a certified
family-friendly employer. Applicants with disabilities who are equally
qualified will be favoured.

Please compile all application materials into one pdf or zip-file
and send it via e-mail to:
Subject: RTG ALOP

For full consideration, applications must be received by February 22,
2019, however, late applications will be considered until the
positions are filled.

Subject: CFP, Special Issue, Bridges between optimization and machine learning

This Special Issue is on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the
Group for Research in Decision Analysis - GERAD (

Machine learning and optimization research communities have been
increasingly gathering efforts to face hard global optimization
problems. For example, optimization is largely used for setting the
parameters of machine learning models, or to create more compact data
representations without much loss of information. In turn, machine
learning is widely used for data-driven optimization yielding methods
better tailored for the final practical applications. The objective
of this special issue is to publish innovative global optimization
algorithms revolving around the combination of optimization and
machine learning techniques. We encourage submissions on theory,
methods, and applications focusing on a broad range of optimization
and machine learning approaches in various domains. The deadline for
submissions is July 31, 2019. Papers will be peer- reviewed according
to the editorial policy of the Journal of Global Optimization. They
should be original, unpublished, and not currently under consideration
for publication elsewhere. Contributions should be prepared according
to the instructions to authors that can be found in the journal
homepage. Authors should upload their contributions using the
submission site, by selecting
the option SI: GERAD-40.
