Call for Proposals: Gene Golub SIAM Summer School 2011 – July 3-15, 2011 University of British Columbia, Vancouver BC ------ SIAM is calling for letters of intent for possible proposals of topics and organizers for the Gene Golub SIAM Summer School (G2S3) for approximately 50 graduate students to be held at the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, during the two weeks prior to ICIAM, i.e., July 3-15, 2011. This SIAM summer school will be co-sponsored by PIMS, the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences. SIAM has budgeted US$50,000 and PIMS has awarded CAN$25,000 towards the G2S3 2011. Information about the G2S3 program can be found at http://www.siam.org/about/com_golub.php and about the G2S3 2010 at http://www.siam.org/students/summer.php Letters of intent should include the names of the organizers and a summary of any previous organizing experience; a proposed title for the summer school; tentative course topics and lecturers (indicating whether these people have already been contacted); possible sources for additional funding, if needed; (optional) preliminary budget. No registration fee shall be charged to the students, and the bulk of the funds shall be budgeted for students' expenses. The topic of the school is open to any area of applied mathematics, computational science, and industrial mathematics. Numerical Linear Algebra is the topic of 2010, and is expected to be the topic of 2013, so preference will be given to other themes that have a computational component. The courses are expected to be at the research level and cover topics not usually found in regular university courses. The organizers who are awarded the right to organize G2S3 2011 will be responsible for inviting and confirming the lecturers, setting the schedule, working with SIAM to solicit applications from students, evaluating the applications and notifying applicants of the outcome. They will be working with SIAM and PIMS to ensure that the allocated budget is not exceeded, and to ensure that the appropriate local arrangements are made in a timely fashion, that the necessary information is available on the web when needed, and that all participants are kept appropriately informed about arrangements. Letters of intent should be sent to Linda Thiel, thiel_at_siam.org, preferably in pdf format no later than January 31, 2010. Full proposals will be due on March 31, 2010. For questions or informal inquiries, please contact the G2S3 committee chair, Daniel Szyld, szyld_at_temple.edu, +220.127.116.1188. ================================================================= ================================================================= DM-Net is a forum of the SIAM Activity Group on Discrete Mathematics We disseminate your contributions on anything of interest to the discrete mathematics community.
