ECMI 2021 conference on Applied Mathematics

The ECMI 2021 Conference on Industrial and Applied Mathematics will be
held as an online conference hosted by the University of Wuppertal
from April 13th to April 15th 2021. The traditional elements of a
biennial ECMI conference such as plenary lectures, an Anile prize
lecture, a Wacker prize lecture, lectures within minisymposia and from
our partner, the Asia-Pacific Consortium of Mathematics-for-Industry,
as well as contributed talks will be made available as synchronous
online events.

Unfortunately, because of the ongoing Corona pandemic, we were not be
able to have a normal face-to-face ECMI2020 at the University of
Limerick. Instead we are organizing a virtual ECMI2021 conference in
the period April 13-15, 2021, that will be as close as possible to the
traditional events.

A registration form is available on the conference website where you can also submit a
minisymposium proposal, a minisymposium talk or a contributed talk.

As usual we will publish a conference proceedings Progress in
Industrial Mathematics at ECMI 2021, at Springer, see 'Submission' for
further details.

As a token of appreciation, minisymposium organizers will receive a
printed copy of the ECMI2021 Proceedings.

Subject: Submission Deadlines Extended, SIAM ACDA21, USA, Jul 2021

The submission deadlines for the 2021 SIAM Conference on Applied and
Computational Discrete Algorithms (ACDA21) have been extended. The new
deadline is Monday, March 8, 2020, for all types of submission.

The SIAM Conference on Applied and Computational Discrete Algorithms
is a new conference that brings together researchers who design and
study combinatorial and graph algorithms motivated by applications.
ACDA is organized by SIAM under the auspices of the SIAM Activity
Group on Applied and Computational Discrete Algorithms. ACDA subsumes
the long-running series of SIAM Workshops on Combinatorial Scientific
Computing, and expands its scope to applications of discrete models
and algorithms across all areas in the physical and life sciences and
engineering, the social and information sciences, and anywhere
discrete mathematical techniques are used to formulate and solve
problems in the world. ACDA invites papers on the formulation of
combinatorial problems from applications; theoretical analyses; design
of algorithms; computational evaluation of the algorithms; and
deployment of the resulting software to enable applications.

The conference will include a refereed proceedings and additional
submitted talks that are not part of the proceedings. It will also
include invited talks, an industrial problem session, a poster
session, and one or two minitutorials to introduce general topical
areas in applied combinatorics. Awards will be given for best paper,
best poster, and best student presentation.
