Subject: Spring Lecture Series, Univ of Arkansas, ONLINE, Apr 2021

The University of Arkansas Department of Mathematical Sciences is
hosting the 46th Annual Spring Lecture Series virtually during the
week April 5-9, 2021.

David Keyes, Professor of Applied Mathematics and Computational
Science and the Director of the Extreme Computing Research Center at
KAUST, will deliver lectures on "Scalable Solvers: Universals and

In addition, there will be ten talks by invited speakers: Zhaojun Bai
(University of California Davis); Xiao-Chuan Cai (University of
Colorado Boulder); Edmond Chow (Georgia Institute of Technology); Jack
Dongarra (University of Tennessee); Laura Grigori (INRIA Paris); Ilse
Ipsen (North Carolina State University); Xiaoye Sherry Li (Lawrence
Berkeley National Laboratory); Carol Woodward (Lawrence Livermore
National Laboratory); Ulrike Meier Yang (Lawrence Livermore National
Laboratory); Rio Yokota (Tokyo Institute of Technology)

The talks will be held from 9:00am to 12:30pm CDT.

Additionally, we will have an outreach component in the form of a
public lecture, which is intended for the community at large and will
be given by Ann Almgren, a senior scientist and the group leader of
the Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering in the
Department of Applied Mathematics at the Lawrence Berkeley National
Laboratory. We will also use the series to strengthen the female side
of the mathematical sciences with a "Women in STEM" panel
discussion. The goal of the panel discussion is to provide an
environment that will facilitate the sharing of ideas and experiences
with the women panelists.

Subject: Cancellation, Biennial Conference in NA, Glasgow, Jun 2021

It is with great regret that we have had to cancel the Biennial
Conference in Numerical Analysis due to take place at the University
of Strathclyde in June. It has been clear for a while that the
prospect of being able to hold a large in-person meeting in the UK is
not realistic until well beyond the summer, but we have held on on the
off-chance of a sudden change.

While we remain hopeful that the worst of the pandemic is behind us,
we decided not to jeopardise the safety and comfort of the delegates
and run unnecessary risks. We value greatly the tradition of this
meeting, with social interactions at its heart, and thus we don't feel
it would be well served by holding a virtual replacement. Instead, we
aim to be back in 2023, and we really look forward to meeting our
friends and colleagues in two years' time!

Subject: Deadline Ext, System Modelling and Optimization, Aug 2021

The local organizing committee of the IFIP TC7 conference on System
Modelling and Optimization decided to extend the deadline for
minisymposium proposals to March 26, 2021.

The 29th edition of the IFIP TC7 conference on System Modelling and
Optimization will be organized in virtual format, from August 30th to
September 3th 2021, by the Research Center for Math. Modelling
(MODEMAT), Escuela Politecnica Nacional, Ecuador. The highly-regarded
conference series covers topics such as: Modeling and Simulation;
Continuous, Discrete, and Stochastic Optimization; Optimal Control;
Inverse Problems; Imaging Science.

Minisymposium proposals (4 talks per session, one or more sessions)
may be sent directly at:

Subject: Lecturer Positions, Comp Mathematics/Statistics, St Andrews

1) Lecturer in Computational Mathematics/Statistics - AC2273NB, School
of Mathematics and Statistics, Start Date: 2 August 2021 or as soon as
possible thereafter

The School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of St Andrews
is seeking to enhance its approach to teaching through re-developing the
way computing in mathematics and statistics is taught across its
curriculum. In order to support this updated approach, the School is
seeking a full-time lecturer to lead teaching activities in mathematical and
statistical computing. The successful candidate will demonstrate a
commitment to delivering high quality teaching, particularly in the manner
in which technology enhanced learning is used in delivering mathematics
and statistics. Applications are therefore invited from individuals with a
background in any area of mathematics or statistics.

2) Associate Lecturer (Education Focused) in Computational
Mathematics/Statistics - AO1681NB, School of Mathematics and
Statistics, Start Date: 2 August 2021 or as soon as possible
thereafter Fixed Term: 4 Years

The School of Mathematics and Statistics is seeking an outstanding
educator for the post of Associate Lecturer (Education Focused) with
an expertise in developing and delivering teaching in mathematical
and/or statistical computing. This post is fixed term for four years
