Mid Atlantic Numerical Analysis Day 2014

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

Friday, 7 November 2014

Keynote Speaker

Eitan Tadmor,
Center for Scientific Computation and Mathematical Modeling
and Department of Mathematics,
University of Maryland, College Park

Social Dynamics: Modeling, Analysis and Numerical Simulation

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 (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.

Conference Poster

You can download a small conference poster.
