Computational science and engineering student conference coming

Graduate and undergraduate students are invited to submit abstracts for and attend the interdisciplinary Computational Science and Engineering Student Conference, which will feature faculty addresses as well as poster presentations.

The conference will be April 5 in Discovery Park's Mann Hall and Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship. Abstracts are due Monday (March 18). It is organized by Purdue's student chapter of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM@Purdue) with sponsorship of numerous Purdue colleges, schools, departments and centers.

The lead speaker will be Mark Lundstrom, the Don and Carol Scifres Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He was the founding director of the University's Network for Computational Nanotechnology, and he now directs Purdue's SRC Network for Photovoltaic Technology.

Also scheduled to speak are Kurt Bryan, professor of mathematics at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, and Juan Wachs, assistant professor of industrial engineering at Purdue.
