This summer I’ll be spending two weeks in Monterey teaching part of the 2012
Gene Golub SIAM Summer School on Simulation and Supercomputing in the Geosciences, taking place July 29 to August 10. The primary focus will be on techniques for simulating tsunami propagation and inundation, storm surge, and related numerical analysis and high-performance computing topics. Other organizers/lecturers are Michael, Bader, Joern Behrens, and Frank Giraldo.
This summer school is open to graduate students from all countries, and we encourage applicants from under-represented groups. At least partial funding is available for all participants.
We’ll be selecting about 50 participants. The deadline to apply is February 1, 2012. For more details and instructions on how to apply, see the website http://www.mac.tum.de/g2s3.
This will be the third annual Gene Golub Summer School, funded in part by an endowment from the estate of Gene Golub. This series is a very appropriate way to honor Gene’s memory, since he always cared greatly about students, not only in his group at Stanford but around the world. Mike Heath, a fellow former student in the numerical analysis group at Stanford, wrote a nice article remembering Gene in SIAM News.
