Congratulations to Dr. Trygve Karper who accepted an offer as a Visiting Assistant Professor at the Institut de Mathématiques de Toulouse, in the Université Paul Sabatier.
Congratulations to Dio Margetis who was awarded the university Research and Scholarship Award (RASA) for Spring 2014.
A meeting of CSCAMM faculty with AMSC students will be held at the Center for Scientific Computation and Mathematical Modeling (CSCAMM) on Nov 2, from 10am-Noon. The meeting will provide a platform for presentation of CSCAMM faculty research and Q&A with AMSC students. A follow-up lunch 12-1pm will be hosted by CSCAMM. AMSC students and CSCAMM post-docs are welcome.
Prof. Eitan Tadmor was named to the inaugural class of Fellows of the American Mathematical Society. This program recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics.
Doron Levy was appointed as the Math Department "Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies".
CSCAMM welcomes Dr. Thomas Rey from Institut Camille Jordan, Université Claude Bernard Lyon, as a new Post-Doctoral Research Associate with Prof. Tadmor.
Congratulations to Dio Margetis on being promoted to Full Professor.

A new NSF award: KI-net -- Kinetic description of emerging challenges in multiscale problems of natural sciences.

A five-year $5M NSF collaborative proposal for a new Research Network in Math Sciences (RNMS) was awarded Feb. 16, 2012. Research Networks is a recent new mode of operation for the Math Sciences in the NSF. The ultimate goal of the KI-net is the development, analysis and computation of novel kinetic descriptions with various applications in quantum dynamics with applications to chemistry, to network dynamics with applications to social sciences, and to kinetic models of biological processes. It will be centered around three hubs: CSCAMM serving as the leading hub (PI: Eitan Tadmor CSCAMM/Math/IPST) together with ICES at UT Austin hub (PI: I. Gamba), and the Department of Mathematics at the UW-Madison hub (PI: S. Jin). At the initial stage, they will inter-connect 12 nodes through a series of edges, involving 25 core participants.
