Analysis Models and Methods: A conference on Applied Mathematics and Computational Methods in memory of Fred Howes March 01, 2001 - March 03, 2001
Registration Deadline: March 03, 2001 almost 22 years ago
To apply for Funding you must register by: December 01, 2000 about 22 years ago
Parent Program: --
Organizers A. Chorin, I. Singer and M. Wright
As manager of the Applied Mathematics Research Program at the Department of Energy, Fred Howes had a clear vision of the dual roles of applied mathematics and computational simulation---as fundamental research in their own right and as connections to applications in science and engineering. Fred's program nurtured and guided a broad spectrum of research at universities and DOE laboratories that has had major impact in both these domains. In honor of Fred's memory, we are organizing a two-day conference to highlight the unifying intellectual themes as well as the mathematical and scientific contributions of research that he sponsored. The speakers will include researchers supported under Fred's program; the talks will cover topics such as analytical and numerical methods for differential equations, asymptotic analysis, mathematical physics, numerical linear algebra, statistical prediction methods, imaging, material science, turbulence, combustion, and subsurface flows.

Show Funding

To apply for funding, you must register by the funding application deadline displayed above.

Students, recent Ph.D.'s, women, and members of underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. Funding awards are typically made 6 weeks before the workshop begins. Requests received after the funding deadline are considered only if additional funds become available.

Show Lodging

MSRI does not hire an outside company to make hotel reservations for our workshop participants, or share the names and email addresses of our participants with an outside party. If you are contacted by a business that claims to represent MSRI and offers to book a hotel room for you, it is likely a scam. Please do not accept their services.

MSRI has preferred rates at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza, depending on room availability. Guests can call the hotel's main line at 510-845-7300 and ask for the MSRI- Mathematical Science Research Institute discount. To book online visit this page (the MSRI rate will automatically be applied).

MSRI has preferred rates at the Graduate Berkeley, depending on room availability. Reservations may be made by calling 510-845-8981. When making reservations, guests must request the MSRI preferred rate. Enter in the Promo Code MSRI123 (this code is not case sensitive).

MSRI has preferred rates at the Berkeley Lab Guest House, depending on room availability. Reservations may be made by calling 510-495-8000 or directly on their website. Select "Affiliated with the Space Sciences Lab, Lawrence Hall of Science or MSRI." When prompted for your UC Contact/Host, please list Chris Marshall (coord@msri.org).

MSRI has a preferred rates at Easton Hall and Gibbs Hall, depending on room availability. Guests can call the Reservations line at 510-204-0732 and ask for the MSRI- Mathematical Science Research Inst. rate.
