Subject: Survey, Computational Science & Eng Grad Programs

We would like to collect information on computational science and
engineering (CSE) graduate programs that are in place today. This
survey is designed to assess the prevalence of Computational Science
and Engineering (CSE) programs in universities throughout the
world. We want to see how these CSE programs are built and
implemented, and where they reside within the university system at
their respective institutions. The purpose is to look at the
similarities and differences of the programs and to provide guidance
on modeling future programs.

If you have a graduate program in computational science and
engineering at your university, we would like to ask you to take a
brief survey to add your program to the database we are collecting. We
plan to produce a brief report describing the current state of the CSE
graduate programs worldwide.

You can find the survey at:

studied for subspaces, linear varieties, and general convex sets. The
authors also unify these algorithms into a common theoretical

Subject: IMA Maths of Surfaces, UK, Sep 2013

14th IMA Conference on Mathematics of Surfaces
11 =96 13 September 2013, University of Birmingham (tbc)

Computer-based methods for the capture, construction, representation,
fitting, interrogation and manipulation of complicated surfaces have
led to a wide interest in, and need for, the mathematics of surfaces
and related curves. Many applications require the use of surface
descriptions, especially in such fields as computer aided design and
manufacturing, computer graphics and computer vision.

Three types of papers are sought:
- Research papers presenting new developments in the capture,
representation, manipulation, approximation, fitting, and design of
surfaces, with an emphasis on computational methods and their
underlying mathematical principles.
- Research papers covering novel practical applications of surface
mathematics in areas such as CAD, computer vision, computer
graphics, geographic information systems, and architecture,
especially those which pose new problems for the research community.
- Survey papers describing the state of the art of an aspect of the
mathematics of surfaces.

Abstracts of up to 500 words for contributed papers are invited (in
any of the categories outlined above) before the end of September
2012. These should be submitted to the IMA Conferences Department,
either online at or by email to Full papers of accepted abstracts must be
submitted by the end of December 2012.
