Subject: 16th IMA Fox Prize in Numerical Analysis

The Sixteenth IMA Leslie Fox Prize meeting will take place on Monday
June 24th 2013, in the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences
in Edinburgh.

Entries for the Sixteenth Leslie Fox Prize competition should be
submitted by January 31, 2013. Any person who is less than 31 years
old on January 1st, 2013 and has not already won a first prize is
eligible. Each entry should consist of a paper, describing some of the
candidate's research, that is suitable for a 40 minute lecture at a
numerical analysis meeting.

The entries will be considered by an Adjudicating Committee comprising
Nick Gould (Rutherford Appleton Laboratory), Andy Wathen (Oxford
University) and Mark Ainsworth (Chairman, Brown University).

Full details of the prize, and the submission procedure, may be found

Subject: Image Based Mod, Sim, and Viz, USA, Aug 2012

Workshop on Image Based Modeling, Simulation, and Visualization

Target audience: biomedical engineers interesting in using
computational tools to support research and development across a broad
application spectrum.

Workshop goals: to use lectures, demos, and hands-on experience to
learn about a complete computational pipeline including: 1)
visualization and segmentation of three-dimensional image based data
sets; 2) shape analysis of anatomical structures from image data; 3)
construction of polygonal models of surfaces and volumes from these
images for subsequent analysis, visualization of measured data,
simulation, or other forms of computation; and 4) simulation of
bioelectric fields that arise in electrocardiology and
neuroelectricity. Each participant will receive a complete set of
binary executables, source code, demo data, and documentation for all
elements of the pipeline software.

Presenters: member of the Center for Integrated Biomedical Computing
(CIBC) will staff the workshop, present demos, help answer questions
during the labs, and discuss research applications with users.

Prerequisites: participants should bring a laptop of at least moderate
capacity and up to date operating system (Windows or OSX) and
graphics-card drivers. While participants are encouraged to bring
their own data, we will provide examples for use during the workshop.
