The CASCADE RAIN (Regional, Applied, Interdisciplinary and Numerical) 2019 Math meeting will be held at UW Bothell this Saturday April 13.
Graduate students interested in carpooling can contact Malgo Peszynska to coordinate; please do so by Monday April 8 evening.
The RAIN Meeting is a gathering of researchers for rapid and informal communication of ongoing research activities in computational and applied mathematics in the northwest region. It is intended to complement the annual PNWNAS and biennial SIAM PNW meetings, which feature longer lectures by invited speakers. We encourage talks from graduate students, who may be able to receive travel support. There is no registration fee, but participants are asked to register, for our planning and records.
Format: The RAIN Meeting begins with a call for speakers. Those planning to give a talk will write their name and talk title on a strip of paper that will be placed in a hat for a random draw that determines the talk order. The talk length is determined by the total available time divided by the number of speakers, with talk durations typically ranging between 10 and 15 minutes. This format is similar to the Finite Element Circus, the Finite Element Rodeo, and the European Finite Element Fair. Reflecting the varied interests of our northwest participants, however, the RAIN Meeting is not limited to finite element talks.
The 2019 meeting is co-organized by Thomas Humphries, faculty member at UW Bothell. Thomas was a postdoc at OSU in 2014 when he co-organized our first Cascade Meeting as a ``founding father'' of the first Cascade meeting we held.
