DD26: Registration closing soon

The 26th International Conference on Domain Decomposition Methods
(DD26), organized by the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), will
take place ONLINE from December 7 to 12, 2020. To take into account
the various geographical locations of our participants, plenary talks
are scheduled at a time that is reasonable for most time zones, and
parallel sessions are scheduled twice a day in such a way that
participants can attend at least one out of two sessions
comfortably. Also, talks will be recorded for later viewing by other
participants (subject to consent from individual speakers). The full
schedule can be found on the conference website.

This is a gentle reminder that registration will close on October 31,
2020. The registration fees are HKD800 (about USD 100) for regular
participants, and HKD400 (about USD 50) for students. We ask all
speakers at minisymposia and contributed sessions to register by that
date, as we will be obliged to remove unregistered speakers from the
schedule. If you have registered in 2019 and opted to keep your fees
for 2020, there is no need to register again, and you will be

Subject: Postdoc Position, Applied Mathematics

This proposal sets out a research plan to investigate a set of
adaptive data structures and computational methods when applied to
solve non- Newtonian materials in complex moving interface flows. This
project will focus on improvements on hybrid simulations, merging the
advantages of static adaptive grids and moving structures such as
particles to track the surface position in 3D. RBF-FD (Radial Basis
Function-Finite Difference) technique will be applied to particle
interpolations and differential values computation to combine both
techniques seamlessly. Moreover, applying high accurate boundary
conditions over the particles' surface allow for improved tracking of
the correct surface behavior. The project is associated with the
Center for Mathematical Sciences Applied to Industry (CeMEAI) - a
Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center (CEPID) in the state of
Sao Paulo (Brazil) supported by FAPESP (Sao Paulo Research Foundation)
- and is hosted as by the Faculty of Science and Technology of the Sao
Paulo State University (FCT-UNESP) at Presidente Prudente. Candidates

information, year graduated and citizenship/immigration status,
concisely responding to the research emphases above; 2. A CV; 3. A
cover letter including names and contact information for 3 references
(no letters please). Indicate 'CEPID Postdoc' in the subject field.

This opportunity is open to candidates of any nationalities. The
selected candidate will receive a FAPESP's Post-Doctoral fellowship in
the amount of R$ 7,373.10 monthly and a research contingency fund,
