Mid Atlantic Numerical Analysis Day 2013

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

Friday, 22 November 2013

Keynote Speaker

Marsha Berger,
Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences,
New York University

Old and New Challenges for Embedded Boundary Grids in Computational Fluid Dynamics

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 (25 minutes each) 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.

Conference Poster

You can download a small conference poster.
