Subject: Structure Preserving Methods, Hyperbolic Equations, ONLINE,

Sep-Dec 2020

We are happy to invite you to a series of seminar lectures on
"Structure preserving methods for hyperbolic equations" to be held
Sept. 24 - Dec. 17, 2020 via Zoom, see here

This series of seminar lectures addresses numerical methods for
hyperbolic partial differential equations that preserve certain
structures. Examples are schemes that preserve involutions
constraints, stationary solutions or asymptotic behavior. The speakers
are: Michael Dumbser (Trento, Italy), Manuel Castro (Malaga, Spain),
Evgeniy Romensky (Novosibirsk, Russia), Philippe Helluy (Strasbourg,
France), Ilyia Peshkov (Trento, Italy), Elena Gaburro (Trento, Italy),
Nicolas Crouseilles (Rennes, France), Carlos Pares (Malaga, Spain),
Gregor Gassner (Cologne, Germany), Wasilij Barsukow (Zurich,
Switzerland), Yann Brenier (Paris, France), Gabriella Puppo (Rome,
Italy), Min Tang (Shanghai, China).

All are welcome to join us via Zoom, please email Christian
Klingenberg at Wuerzburg University (Germany) at
klingen@mathematik.uni-wuerzburg.de to obtain the Zoom address.

Subject: Domain Decomposition Methods, ONLINE, Dec 2020

The 26th International Conference on Domain Decomposition Methods
(DD26), organized by the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), will
now take place ONLINE from December 7 to 12, 2020. To take into
account the various geographical locations of our participants,
plenary talks are scheduled at a time that is reasonable for most time
zones, and parallel sessions are scheduled twice a day in such a way
that participants can attend at least one out of two sessions
comfortably. Also, talks will be recorded for later viewing by other
participants (subject to consent from individual speakers). The full
schedule can be found on the conference website.

Registration is now open. The registration fees are HKD800 (about USD
100) for regular participants, and HKD400 (about USD 50) for
students. The deadline for registration is October 31,
2020. Participants who have previously registered and kept their fees
for 2020 are automatically registered, and they will be contacted for
refund arrangements.

We have reopened the call for minisymposia and contributed
talks. Proposals should be in the form of a plain text e-mail to
dd26@math.cuhk.edu.hk. For minisymposia, please provide a title, a
short description of the subject matter, and a list of speakers for
the minisymposium. For contributed talks, please provide a title an
abstract. The deadline for submitting proposals is October 15, 2020
(extended deadline). Previously accepted minisymposia and contributed
talks are automatically accepted for this round.

For more information about DD26, please see the conference website at

Subject: SIAM CSE21 Code Generation, ONLINE, Mar 2021

The Firedrake team is proposing a minisymposterium at SIAM CSE21 due
to be held March 1-5 2021. CSE21 will be held at least partly online,
so this is a great opportunity for everyone in the code generation
community to share their work, even if they won't be in Fort Worth in
March. Submitting a poster doesn't count against the one presentation
rule, so please consider submitting even if you are also presenting
elsewhere at the conference. The proposed title and abstract are
Automatic simulation code generation tools and their applications.
Automatic code generation provides a mechanism for creating high
performance simulations using sophisticated numerical methods at
minimal development cost. Tools such as Firedrake, FEniCS, FreeFEM++,
Devito and many others enable developers to work in a highly
productive way at a high level of mathematical abstraction, while
still creating optimised low-level code which is frequently faster
than would have been written by hand. Code generation approaches also
facilitate a separation of concerns in which new numerical methods or
performance improvements become directly available to application
developers without the need for repeated recoding. This
minisymposterium provides the opportunity for developers and users of
code generation frameworks to present recent developments in both the
capabilities and applications of these frameworks. The poster session
will also provide the opportunity for informal exchanges of ideas in
this community, and to support dialog between developers, and existing
and potential users of these frameworks."

To take part in our minisymposterium you will need to fill out the
survey https://imperial.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_efEu8ddYj1nicdv.
The survey helps us to collect poster titles and authors for inclusion
into our proposal.

The proceeding for minisymposteria is the following: 'Participants
must submit their posters using the Conference Management System. The
poster title should be submitted as "Minisymposterium: [insert poster
title]". After the posters are submitted to the Conference Management
System, organizers must submit the minisymposterium proposal form.'
Therefore you will need to fill out our survey by 20th Semptember, one
day before SIAM's deadline for poster submissions.
