Subject: Southern California Applied Mathematics Symposium

The applied and computational mathematics community in Southern California
is going to hold the Southern California Applied Mathematics Symposium
(SoCAMS) annually. The Symposium is intended to be informal and relaxing
and to provide plenty of time for discussions and social gathering.
Graduate students are encouraged to contribute a poster session during the
breaks. The first SoCAMS will be held on May 12, 2001 at California
Institute of Technology. More details can be found at

Subject: Postdoctoral Position at Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey

Postdoctoral Position at Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey

Research involves fast solution algorithms for computational
electromagnetics (CEM). In particular, fast intermediate-frequency
(resonance-region) solvers, such as the fast multipole method (FMM), and
high-frequency solvers employing asymptotic techniques will be considered.

Applications are sought immediately and will be accepted until the position
is filled, with no specific deadline.
Modern setting, friendly environment, satisfactory compensation package. For
more info, please see For applications and
further details, please contact Prof. Levent Gurel, Dept. of Electrical and
Electronics Engineering, Bilkent University, TR-06533, Ankara, Turkey,
