Multiscale Modeling of Materials: Mathematics and Computation, May 06

Northwest Consortium for Multiscale Mathematics and Applications Invites Contributors and Attendees to the workshop on:
Multiscale Modeling of Materials: Mathematics and Computation May 25-30, 2006 University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, WA
This is the first in the series of training workshops and summer education courses that are planned for 2006-2009.
Participation by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows is strongly encouraged.
The goals of the workshop are: * To inform and educate different communities about achievements of others in the area of multiscale modeling of materials. * To create synergy between engineers, scientists and mathematicians and bring their unified intellectual powers to bear on multiscale problems in materials.
The first step in this endeavor is to define critical problems and map the strategies for solving them through these workshops and training sessions.
The participants will bring the expertise different fields of knowledge, exchange information, define problems and address a selected group of topics including: * Homogenization Methods: Analysis & Numerical Methods * Granular Materials & Network - Continuum Models * Porous Media & Multiphase Flow * Dislocation - Plasticity Models * Atomistic - Continuum Models * Statistical Methods
The structure of the May 2006 workshop will include: (A) Focused tutorials in selected topics designed for mutual information sharing and education across the different fields of expertise. (B) Plenary lectures delivered by the foremost experts in different fields. (C) Short seminars delivered by contributors. (D) Focused discussion groups.
The Plenary Speakers: I. Aronson (Argonne), M. Asta (UC Davis), H. Garmestani (GaTech), R. Gilbert (U Delaware), M. Kuhn (U Portland), R. LeVeque (U Wash.), R. Lipton (LSU), D. McDowell (GaTech), A. Pankov (Col. William & Mary), M.J. Pindera, (U Virginia), R. Showalter (Oregon State U), E. Tadmore (Technion/U Minn), H.M. Zbib (Wash. State U)
A Summer School in Multiscale Modeling will be organized in 2007 and 2008.
The attendees and contributors at the May workshop will have an opportunity to contribute to the design of the Summer School curriculum and/or to serve as a lecturer during the summer school programs.
Contributions: To present a seminar, please include your proposed title and 250-ish word abstract in the fields provided during the registration process. Please keep in mind that, in contrast to the regular conference seminars where the speaker presents own results, the purpose of these seminars is to: inform/inspire broader community, formulate critical questions, and initiate collaboration between different specialties.
