Subject: Winter School, UQ for Physical Phenomena, Norway, Jan 2015

It is a pleasure to announce that the 15th Geilo Winter School will
take place January 18th-23rd, 2015 at Dr. Holms Hotel, Geilo.

As you can see from the flyer (, this years
winter school will cover Uncertainty Quantification for Physical
Phenomena, a topic we hope many of you find interesting. Uncertainty
quantification aims to answer the questions "How accurate are the
results?", and "Where are the largest uncertainties?", and the winter
school will cover both intrusive and non-intrusive methods. We will
learn from experts in the field on topics including multi-level Monte
Carlo and ensemble simulations, polynomial chaos, and inverse
problems. More details are available on the winter school webpages,, which are updated regularly with new

There will also be a poster session, where participants are encouraged
to present their own research.

The Institute for Scientific Computation at Texas A&M University is
pleased to announce the workshop "Advanced Numerical Methods in the
Mathematical Sciences" to be held at Texas A&M in College Station,
Texas, on May 4-8, 2015. This workshop aims to bring together
researchers working on different aspects of finite element
discretization techniques and their applications and to foster
interaction among researchers from both industry and academia.

Taking place at the university's campus, this workshop will host a
poster session and offer a number of invited presentations given by a
mix of senior and junior researchers. We particularly encourage
workshop participants to present posters. Additionally, preceding the
workshop on May 3, 2015, will be a day of tutorials on various topics
concerning finite element discretizations.

Thanks to assistance from the National Science Foundation, we will
offer young researchers and doctoral students financial support on a
competitive basis.

Subject: Agent-Based Simulations, Adaptive Algorithms, Iceland, Jun 2015

Agent-Based Simulations, Adaptive Algorithms and Solvers
Reykjavik, Iceland
June 5 - June 7, 2015

The aim of this workshop is to integrate results of different domains
of computer science, computational science and mathematics.

We invite papers oriented toward simulations, either hard simulations
by means of finite element or finite difference methods, or soft
simulations by means of evolutionary computations, particle swarm
optimization and other. The workshop is most interested in simulations
performed by using agent-oriented systems or by utilizing adaptive
algorithms, but simulations performed by other kind of systems are
also welcome. Agent-oriented system seems to be the attractive tool
useful for numerous domains of applications. Adaptive algorithms allow
significant decrease of the computational cost by utilizing
computational resources on most important aspect of the problem.

This year following the challenges of ICCS 2015 theme "Computational
Science at the Gates of Nature" we invite submissions using techniques
dealing with large simulations, e.g. agents based algorithms dealing
with big data, model reduction techniques for large problems, fast
solvers for large three dimensional simulations, etc.

The papers may be submitted via
Please remember to select ABS-AAS Workshop there
