Mid Atlantic Numerical Analysis Day 2019

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

Friday, 15 November 2019

Keynote Speaker

Daniela Calvetti,
Case Western Reserve University

The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Numerical
Linear Algebra in Bayesian Inverse Problems

The Conference

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.
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.
