Workshop “Scientific computation using machine-learning algorithms: recent mathematical advances and applications” 25-26 April 2019, University of Nottingham, UK

Workshop “Scientific computation using machine-learning algorithms: recent mathematical advances and applications”, 25-26 April 2019, University of Nottingham UK https://tinyurl.com/sci-comp-and-ml-2019

Over the past decade machine-learning and neural-network methodologies have matured tremendously in the areas of computer vision, language processing and data science, and have given rise to highly innovative and efficient algorithms for a wide-range of data-intensive applications. Theoretical understanding of this remarkable performance of machine learning methodologies is an emerging topic in mathematical research. On the other hand, it has been recognised only recently that these learning methodologies lead to new solution paradigms for the computational applied sciences, with significantly more efficient algorithms and the potential to cause a step change in designing solution techniques for large-scale problems.

The aim of this workshop is to discuss recent advances in mathematical foundations of machine learning and artificial neural networks as well as the application of these methodologies in computational science. The workshop will bring together experts in such diverse areas as approximation theory, PDEs, scientific computing, networks, computer science, and uncertainty quantification to facilitate the exchange of results and ideas and to initiate new collaborations.

Confirmed speakers:

Martin Eigel (WIAS, Germany)

Ahmed Elsheikh (Heriot Watt University, UK)

Jan Hesthaven (EPFL, Switzerland)

Desmond Higham (University of Strathclyde, UK)

Jakub Marecek (IBM Dublin, Ireland)

Kaj Nystrom (Uppsala University, Sweden)

Ivan Oseledets (Skoltech, Russia)

Philipp Petersen (University of Oxford, UK)

The programme will include a small number of contributed talks. Participants wishing to present a contributed talk are invited to submit a title and a short abstract (maximum 1 page) by sending an email to a.bespalov@bham.ac.uk

Deadline for abstract submission: 31 March 2019

Deadline for registration: 15 April 2019

The aim of this conference is to bring together students working in all areas of applied and industrial mathematics across the UK and Ireland. It will also provide opportunities for students to showcase their research, and to hear talks from distinguished plenary speakers. We are proud to announce that this years speakers are:

Prof. Andrew Wathen (Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford)

Dr Aretha Teckentrup (School of Mathematics, University of Edinburgh)

Prof. Magnus Rattray (Data Science Institute, University of Manchester)

Dr Leonardo Robol (Department of Mathematics, University of Pisa)

We will have sessions for contributed talks and posters, and invite submissions from all students interested in presenting their work. The deadline for speaker and poster applications is Friday 19th April and the link for submission can be found at the conference website here. Successful applicants will be notified by email on Monday 29th April. The deadline for general registration is Friday 24th May.

Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, we’re excited to announce that the prizes for the best student speaker will be a HP laptop and for the best student poster will be a Fitbit Blaze. Runners up will each receive a £150 Amazon voucher. We can also offer a limited number of hardship bursaries (each worth £50) to help student speakers attend the SNSCC. More information on how to apply for a bursary can be found on the conference website.

If you require further information or for general enquiries, please contact the organising committee at siam-maths@manchester.ac.uk.

We look forward to welcoming you in June!

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.

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.
