BAIL: Boundary and Interior Layers Conference, University of Strathclyde

BAIL: Boundary and Interior Layers
University of Strathclyde, Glasgow
June 18-22, 2018

This conference continues a long series of meetings devoted to the
numerical, and asymptotic, analysis of problems presented sharp
layers, and, more widely, numerical methods in fluid mechanics,
with an emphasis on the development and analysis of novel and
robust methods.

Due to multiple requests, we decided to extend the deadline for
submitting an abstract to the meeting.

The new deadline is April 30. The acceptance notification will be on
May 7, and the final deadline for registration is the 15th of May.

The aim of the conference is to bring together students working in applied or industrial mathematics, and areas which use them, from across the UK and Ireland. There will be the opportunity for students to showcase their research through a talk or poster, or to discuss more informally over coffee or the provided lunch on both days.

We welcome talks and posters from any area of applied mathematics, statistics, or any mathematics which has potential applications to industry. There is some funding available for those students with an accepted presentation.

During the two day conference, we will host four fantastic plenary speakers:
Marta Blangiardo (Imperial College London)
Modelling spatio-temporal data: methods, examples and challenges
Simon Chandler-Wilde (University of Reading)
Coercivity of second kind boundary integral equations on Lipschitz domains
Ian Griffiths (University of Oxford)
iPhones and Dysons: using fluid dynamics to tailor technology
Nicole Spillane (CMAP, École Polytechnique)
Domain Decomposition Methods with Adaptive Multipreconditioning

The relevant deadlines for the conference are:
The deadline for contributed talk abstracts is Friday 27th April 2018.
The deadline for poster submissions is Friday 27th April 2018.
The deadline for registration is Friday, 18th May 2018.

We aim to refund travel and accommodation for all speakers, please indicate how much you expect your travel to cost. In some cases we may be able to reimburse poster presenters, please also indicate if you require funding.

We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Bath in June.

SFI Starting Investigator Research Grant

Science Foundation Ireland is seeking applications for the Starting Investigator Research Grant (SIRG)

SIRG  aims to support excellent postdoctoral researchers and others who are yet to hold an independent research post in taking the initial steps towards a fully independent research career.

The SIRG award provides an opportunity for excellent early-career-stage investigators to carry out their own research project in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

The award provides a contribution to the salary for the Starting Investigator (SI) and also provides funding for a postgraduate student, who will be primarily supervised by the SI. The SI will work with an associated mentor, who will provide the necessary support and infrastructure for the project to take place. €425,000 direct costs over a period of four years and covers the salary of the SI and the stipend and fees of a postgraduate student.

One of SFI’s Agenda 2020 KPI targets is to increase the proportion of female award holders to 30% by 2020. Research Bodies will be permitted to put forward a maximum of 12 candidates for the submission of a proposal to the SFI SIRG Programme 2018. A maximum of six candidates, out of the 12 permitted from each eligible research body, may be male candidates.

If you are a postdoctoral researcher with a track record in the area of applied mathematics or statistics and are interested in applying to this programme with MACSI at the University of Limerick please contact MACSI@ul.ie with your CV.  An eligibility is available here.

STOKES MODELLING WORKSHOP AT NUI GALWAY

The School of Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics at NUI Galway is hosting a four day Modelling Workshop from June 6th to 9th. Participants will take part in team-based modelling of real-world, industry-driven problems, supported with training and small group study sessions. Mentoring will be provided by experienced researchers.

The workshop is primarily aimed at postgraduate and early career researchers with a scientific or engineering background. Funding will be provided by MI-NET, the Mathematics for Industry Network, to support their participation.

Participation by undergraduate students is also welcome, with some limited funding provided by the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics.

The workshop participants will work in small groups on problems posed by industry partners. Current problems being considered include

  • Optimising rainfall radar system for a meteorological service;
  • Simulating river flows;
  • Modelling medical devices.

The workshop will also feature sessions on developing skills in scientific computing, and presentation and communication skills.

General queries relating to the workshop should be directed to Niall.Madden@NUIGalway.ie.

Registration is free, but is required.

The workshop takes place the week before the European Study Group with Industry 128, organised by MACSI at the University of Limerick. The modelling week will be an excellent preparation for ESGI128.

For registration and further details, please see the workshop webpage.
