Nonlocal Modeling, Analysis, and Computation
Qiang Du
CBMS-NSF Regional Conference Series in Applied Mathematics 94

Studies of complexity, singularity, and anomaly using nonlocal
continuum models are steadily gaining popularity. This monograph
provides an introduction to basic analytical, computational, and
modeling issues and to some of the latest developments in these
areas. It includes motivational examples of nonlocal models, basic
building blocks of nonlocal vector calculus, elements of theory for
well-posedness and nonlocal spaces, connections to and coupling with
local models, convergence and compatibility of numerical
approximations, and various applications. A particular focus is on
nonlocal systems with a finite range of interaction to illustrate
their connection to local partial differential equations and
fractional PDEs.

Subject: IMA Flood Risk, UK, Sep 2019

12-13 September 2019 Swansea University Bay Campus, Wales, UK

As in the recent publication of the IPCC AR5 report, flood risks have
been again highlighted as one of the most perceivable indicators when
it comes to the understanding of climate change impact. Research on
flood risk has never been ampler, yet we still witness the growing
causalities of severe flooding around globe on a yearly basis. The
stark resemblance of the consequences between the two catastrophic
flooding events in both Japan and Indonesia 2018, exposes a bitter
reality that there are still knowledge gaps where both the academia
and the practitioners need to fill, with no exception for even the
developed world. Continuing from the successful series of previous
IMA Conferences on Flood Risk, the IMA is planning its 4th
International Conference on this topic in 2019 to bring together
engineers, mathematicians and statisticians working in the field. The
conference intends to be used as a forum for participants to meet and
exchange their views on important technical issues, new and emerging
methods and technologies in assessing flood risks in a world that is
being altered by the climate change and moving towards an uncertain
future. The emphasis will be on new developments in mathematical
modelling methods, statistical techniques in assessing flood risks,
especially on quantification of flood risks with a nonstationary
climate and modelling uncertainty. Methods and application of
assimilating new data from cutting-edge new type of observations will
be among the topics for discussion. The conference will be of
interest to flood defence practitioners; flood defence managers;
statisticians, mathematicians, civil engineers.

Subject: IMA Inverse Problems from Theory to Application, UK, Sep 2019

2nd IMA Conference On Inverse Problems From Theory To Application 4-6
September 2019, University College London, Gower Street, London, WC1E

An inverse problem refers to a situation where the quantity of
interest cannot be measured directly, but only through an action of a
nontrivial operator of which it is a parameter. The corresponding
operator, also called forward operator, stems from a physical
application modelling. Prominent examples include: Radon and Fourier
transforms for X-ray CT and MRI, respectively or partial differential
equations e.g. EIT or DOT. The prevalent characteristics of inverse
problems is their ill-posedness i.e. lack of uniqueness and/or
stability of the solution. This situation is aggravated by the
physical limitations of the measurement acquisition such as noise or
incompleteness of the measurements. Inverse problems are ubiquitous in
applications from bio-medical, science and engineering to security
screening and industrial process monitoring. The challenges span from
the analysis to efficient numerical solution. This conference will
bring together mathematicians and statisticians, working on
theoretical and numerical aspects of inverse problems, as well as
engineers, physicists and other scientists, working on challenging
inverse problem applications. We welcome industrial representatives,
doctoral students, early career and established academics working in
this field to attend.

Topic list: Imaging; Inverse problems in partial differential
equations (Memorial Lecture for Slava Kurylev); Model and data driven
methods for inverse problems; Optimization and statistical learning;
Statistical inverse problems

Subject: Postdoc Position, Emory Univ

A postdoctoral position is available for post-doctoral scientist with
strong quantitative skills to undertake research at the interface of
immunology, infectious disease, mathematical modeling and
computational statistics. The position is available immediately for 4
years (48 months by NIH grant). Current salary is $55,000/year with
comprehensive benefits package. The candidate will join dynamic Emory
University research environment and will work in close collaboration
with experimental and theoretical groups.

Our Multi-Scale Modeling project addresses an important current
problem - the generation and use of vaccines against influenza. The
current influenza vaccine provides focused antibody-mediated
protection against seasonal influenza strains included in the
vaccine. However, it does not protect from co-circulating mismatched
strains, and, more importantly, fails to provide protection against
antigenic shifts that can cause potentially devastating pandemics. One
approach to generating broader protection is to use a vaccine that
elicits influenza-specific T cells. This is because T cell epitopes
are relatively conserved between different influenza strains, and
animal and human studies showed that T cells can provide strain-
transcending protection, resulting in more rapid viral clearance,
decreased immunopathology, and improved clinical outcomes. A
postdoctoral trainee will help to design multi-scale models linking
immunological and epidemiological levels, run the simulations and
analyze the results.

- A doctoral degree in a relevant field of biology or in computer
science, statistics, mathematics, physics with a strong interest in
the research described here.
- Evidence of the ability to independently lead a research project and
to work collaboratively with others (publications in leading
international scientific journals).
- Expertise in at least one programming language or mathematical
platform (C, Matlab, R etc.).

The initial appointment is for one year, renewal is expected if
progress is satisfactory, and funds are available for 4
years. Contact: Veronika Zarnitsyna
