A conference on numerical analysis and scientific computing
for graduate students and postdocs from the Mid-Atlantic region.

Eitan Tadmor,
## Social Dynamics: Modeling, Analysis and Numerical Simulation |

This one-day meeting will start at 10am to allow same-day travel.

It will be held in Room 617
Wachman Hall,
Temple University, 1805 North Broad street, just north of Montgomery Avenue
(see directions on right margin).

It will be an opportunity for graduate students and postdocs to
present their research, and to meet other researchers.

There will be contributed talks and a poster session.

There will be no registration fee.
In order to guarantee appropriate space in the lecture rooms,
we ask every participant to please register in advance,
even if you are not planning to give a talk.

Lunch will be provided.

You can download a small conference poster.

If you would like to participate (in any form), please register using the
online registration form.

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is September 22, 2014.
Registration for participation only can be done at any time.
