The programme will feature talks by Gil Strang, Pavel Zhoblich, Des Higham, and Andrew Thompson.


Computational Challenges in PDEs

Venue: Swansea

The meeting will consist of eight half-day sessions, each concentrating on a particular research area that is currently attracting significant interest within the community. The sessions will address the following themes: Multiscale modelling Interface modelling PDEs on surfaces and geometric evolution problems Biomedical applications, including new modelling techniques and patient-specific applications Computational rheology Atomistic-to-continuum passage, density functional theory and quasi-continuum methods Low order modelling: widening the range of high-fidelity time-dependent simulations Uncertainty modelling.

Venue: University of Strathclyde

NAIS Lecturer, Sebastien Loisel (Heriot Watt University) will give a talk at teh Strathclyde NA seminar series.

Title: Optimized domain decomposition methods that scale weakly



18.01.2011 to 21.01.2011

Advanced Numerical Studies in Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations

This is a 4-day meeting organized by the Numerical Algorithms and Intelligent Software Centre and the Centre for Analysis and Nonlinear PDE. The goal of this meeting is is to study problems at the interface of the numerics and PDE communities, examining a variety of different problems in nonlinear partial differential equations for which numerical treatments and the use of high performance computers may lead to important new insight.



Venue: Boardroom, Gateway Building, University of St Andrews, North Haugh, St Andrews, Fife, KY16 9ST

This is the third of a series of Scottish Parallel Computational Mathematics Meetings to explore and develop synergies between major Scottish research activities in parallel computational mathematics, e.g. NAIS, HPC-GAP, SCIEnce, Computational Statistics and Cognitive Neuroscience, Vector Processing Languages.


Strathclyde NA Seminar

Venue: University of Strathclyde

John Blair-Smith (University of Edinburgh) will give a talk at the Strathclyde NA Seminar Series.

Title: History repeats itself in numeric and High Performance Computing



nVIDIA GPU Workshop

Venue: Edinburgh University, Darwin Building, Lecture Theatre G10, Kings Buildings, Mayfield Road, Edinburgh EH9 3JZ

General-Purpose Graphics Processing Units are changing the landscape of high performance computing, with the current number one theoretical peak performance supercomputer Nebulae based GPUs. On October 26th you will have the opportunity to hear about the abilities of GPUs for high performance computing, directly from two of the nVIDIA researchers: Chris Butler and Timothy Lanfear. This workshop will include both an introduction to the architecture and capabilities of the new Tesla series GPUs, as well as exemplar applications.


Glass Simulation Workshop

Venue: University of Edinburgh, CSEC Seminar Room (room 3808), James Clerk Maxwell Building, Kings Buildings, Mayfield Road, Edinburgh EH9 3JZ

This short meeting will feature a collection of introductory talks addressing computational techniques for studying relaxation processes and molecular structure of glasses. PhD students are especially encouraged to attend.
