Meeting on Large-Scale Computation in Materials Simulation Held

April 2000

Anthony Kearsley of the ITL Mathematical and Computational Sciences Division, along with Professor Shlomo Ta'saan of Carnegie Mellon University, organized a successful meeting entitled, "Large-Scale Computations in the Simulations of Materials" on March 30 - April 1, 2000. The meeting was hosted by Carnegie Mellon's Center for Nonlinear Analysis, an NSF-sponsored research and training center concentrating in nonlinear analysis, mechanics, scientific computation, and mathematical finance. The meeting, which took place on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, was funded by the NSF and the Army Research Office. This highly interdisciplinary meeting, brought together about 120 scientists from a wide spectrum of academic, government, and industrial and laboratories where contemporary challenges imposed by advances in industry, technology, and bio-medical sciences are being confronted with state-of-the-art mathematical and computational tools. The topics covered were wide-ranging, from the simulation of micromagnetic materials to prediction of nerve transmissions and blood flow.
