The Cascade RAIN (Regional Applied, Interdisciplinary, and Numerical) Mathematics event will take place on April 9 at Washington State University, Vancouver. Our department initiated this series in Spring of 2014.

The RAIN Meet will start at 10:00am with a call for speakers, continuing in the format similar to that used by the famous Finite Element Circus. The respondents, in random order, make up the program. The talk length is determined by the total available time divided by the number of speakers. Aspiring speakers must be present at 10:00am and must be prepared to give randomly placed and shrinkable talks. The talks start at 10:15am with a randomly selected first speaker. Registration (no fee) is required by Sunday April 2. WSU Vancouver will provide lunch and coffee.

If you are interested in attending and participating in a carpool, let me (M. Peszynska) know.
