Subject: One World Seminar Series on Imaging & Inverse Problems

The current COVID-19 global situation is making traveling impossible and
causing the cancellation of conferences and seminars all around the world.
Inspired by the idea of the Probability, PDE, MINDS, and MADS One
World seminars, our One World IMAGing and INvErse problems
(IMAGINE) seminar series aims to provide a forum for the exchange of
ideas and networking for scientists worldwide working in the field of
mathematical imaging and applied inverse problems.

the deadline of 15 June 2020. During your change of work regimen, why
not contemplate which of our innovative peers in HPC applications,
algorithms, and architectures will bring the greatest honor of
association to these pioneers?

Download the nomination flyer at the URLs below. A nominator and at
least 3 endorsement letters are required for each. Selection
committees of peers await your nominations! Awardees will be honored
and present lectures at SC'20, sponsored by IEEE CS and ACM SIGHPC, in

Subject: Online seminar series on Numerical Linear Algebra

An online seminar series on Numerical Linear Algebra will be organized
every Wednesday at 4pm CET starting from April 29, 2020.

More information can be found at https://sites.google.com/view/e-nla/

The first lecture will be delivered by Nick Higham (University of
Manchester) on "Are Numerical Linear Algebra Algorithms Accurate at
Extreme Scale and at Low Precisions?"

Subject: Graduate Numerical Linear Algebra MOOC/Online Course

Over the past year, we have developed a new online course for The
University of Texas at Austin Online Masters program titled "Linear
Algebra for Computing," building on our expertise with prior Massive
Open Online Courses (MOOCs). This course is also offered as a MOOC,
titled "Advanced Linear Algebra: Foundations to Frontiers," that is
free to auditors (but for which UT-Austin credit is not granted), on
the edX platform. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, we have
extended the current offering to July 15, and plan to open the course
up again in early August for the fall.

These online materials constitute a full graduate course on numerical
linear algebra at a level similar to the books by Trefethen/Bau and
Demmel. It encompasses (free) online notes, over 225 embedded YouTube
videos, exercises with detailed solutions, and Matlab programming
assignments. The notes are available as PreTeXt-generated webpages
and, optionally, a PDF (of more than 600 pages). At the present, we
have more than 1800 participants signed up for the course, from more
than 90 countries. We carefully designed this course for independent
online study.

If you are currently teaching such a course, you may wish to point
your students to these materials as supplementary resources. If you
have students who would benefit from a gradate treatment of linear
algebra for their future careers and now have time on their hands, you
may wish to suggest this course. If you are planning to teach such a
course in the fall and are worried about whether there will again be a
closing of in-class learning, you may wish to consider adopting these

You can examine the online notes by visiting
http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/flame/laff/alaff/. The edX course is
at edx.org (search for ALAFF). Further information regarding this
course, and our other (free) MOOCs on undergraduate linear algebra,
programming for correctness, and programming for high performance can
be found at http://ulaff.net.

Feel free to reach out if you have questions.

Subject: CANCELLED, European Finite Element Fair, France, May 2020

The 18th European Finite Element Fair scheduled to be held in Paris on
May 15-16, 2020, is cancelled due to the current global sanitary

Depending on how the situation evolves, the Fair will be rescheduled
in the fall 2020 (tentatively to early December) or at its usual
timing in the spring 2021.

The organizing committee will evaluate the situation and make an
announcement on NA-digest and on the Fair's current web page
(https://efef2020.inria.fr/) in September.

Subject: POSTPONED, Fractional-Derivative Numerical Methods Conference, China, Jun 2020

The 4th Conference on Numerical Methods for Fractional-Derivative
Problems, which was scheduled to take place at Beijing CSRC on June 4-
6, is postponed. The organisers hope to run this conference in
September or later this year, but we cannot yet give a definite
date. When we have further information, we will update the conference
webpage http://www.csrc.ac.cn/en/event/workshop/2020-01-10/103.html
and also make an announcement on NA Digest.

Subject: POSTPONED, Computational Methods in Applied Mathematics, Austria, Jul 2020

Given the rapidly growing problems due to the Corona pandemic, we have
decided to postpone the 9th international conference on Computational
Methods in Applied Mathematics (CMAM-9) from July 2020 to September
13-17, 2021.

Homepage: https://www.asc.tuwien.ac.at/cmam2020/

The conference is organized under the aegis of the deGruyter journal
Computational Methods in Applied Mathematics (CMAM) and will be
focused on various aspects of mathematical modeling and numerical
methods for problems arising in natural sciences and engineering. In
particular, it aims at fostering cooperation between researchers
working in the area of theoretical numerical analysis and applications
to modeling, simulation, and scientific computing.

Subject: Householder Symposium XXI, Jun 2022

The Householder Symposium XXI on Numerical Linear Algebra has been
rescheduled to be held at Hotel Sierra Silvana, Selva di Fasano (Br),
Italy, 12-17 June 2022. Preliminary information can be found at
http://users.ba.cnr.it/iac/irmanm21/HHXXI/index.html .

The Symposium is very informal, with the intermingling of young and
established researchers a priority. Participants are expected to
attend the entire meeting. The eighteenth Householder Award for the
best thesis in numerical linear algebra since 1 January 2020 will be

Attendance at the meeting is by invitation only. Applications will be
solicited from researchers in numerical linear algebra, matrix theory,
and related areas such as optimization, differential equations, signal
processing, and control. Each attendee will be given the opportunity
to present a talk or a poster. Some talks will be plenary lectures,
while others will be shorter presentations arranged in parallel

The application deadline will be some time in Fall 2021.

It is expected that partial support will be available for some
students, early career participants, and participants from countries
with limited resources.

Subject: Lecturer Position, Data Science, Univ of Stirling, Scotland, UK

The Faculty of Natural Sciences is seeking to appoint two new
Lecturers within the Division of Computing Science and Mathematics
(CSM), as part of an exciting new University of Stirling initiative to
deliver Graduate Apprenticeships in Data Science. These will help
strengthen existing industrial collaborations and form new
relationships with employers, as well as strengthen our related
research and teaching. These posts are open to computer scientists and
statisticians with top quality research and scholarship applicable to
the systems and analysis of large or complex data and, ideally, a
proven background of industrial collaborations. Computing scientists
with experience of teaching statistics at all levels are particularly
encouraged to apply.


The closing date for applications is midnight on Wednesday 06 May
