NSF Grant Approved at the Isaac Newton Institute (Cambridge, UK)

April 23, 2007

An NSF grant has been just approved to assist in the participation of young US-based researchers at the current programme on "Highly oscillatory


Computation, theory and applications" at the Isaac Newton Institute (Cambridge, UK). We have decided to use to to enable the participation of a number of young US-based colleagues at the forthcoming workshop on "Effective computational methods for highly oscillatory problems: The interplay between mathematical theory and applications" (2--6 July 2007, http://www.newton.cam.ac.uk/programmes/HOP/hopw05).

The grant will cover the full "workshop package" of local expenses (room and full board, workshop fees, workshop dinner) but not travel. Having said so, participants might find it convenient to combine their travelling arrangements with any of several other conferences and meetings held in Western Europe in close time proximity.

Anybody interested should email Arieh Iserles (ai@damtp.cam.ac.uk) as soon as possible, enclosing a brief CV. Explaining (briefly, please) how will you benefit from the workshop will come useful. In case you would like to offer a talk or a poster (neither is a condition for funding!), please enclose a

(tentative) title and abstract.
