GAIMME: Guidelines for Assessment & Instruction in Mathematical
Modeling Education, Second Edition
Edited by Sol Garfunkel and Michelle Montgomery

A partnership between SIAM and COMAP, Guidelines for Assessment and
Instruction in Mathematical Modeling Education (GAIMME) enables the
modeling process to be understood as part of STEM studies and
research, and taught as a basic tool for problem solving and logical
thinking.  GAIMME helps define core competencies to include in student
experiences, and provides direction to enhance math modeling education
at all levels.

Written and reviewed by a mix of professionals to present various
levels and perspectives, GAIMME includes example problems and
solutions, levels of sophistication, discussion of teacher
implementation, and suggestions for assessment.

The second edition includes changes primarily to the Early and Middle
Grades (K-8) chapter.

The GAIMME report is freely downloadable from both the COMAP and SIAM
Assessment-and-Instruction-in-Mathematical-Modeling-Education )
websites. Print copies are available for $20 at the SIAM bookstore:

Subject: New Book, Singular Perturbations and Boundary Layers

New book on "Singular Perturbations and Boundary Layers".
Authors: Gie, G.-M., Hamouda, M., Jung, C.-Y., Temam, R.M.

Abstract: This book is a fairly unique resource regarding the rigorous
mathematical treatment of boundary layer problems.  The explicit
methodology developed in this book extends in many different
directions the concept of correctors initially introduced by
J. L. Lions, and in particular the lower- and higher-order error
estimates of asymptotic expansions are obtained in the setting of
functional analysis. The review of differential geometry and treatment
of boundary layers in a curved domain is an additional strength of
this book. In the context of fluid mechanics, the outstanding open
problem of the vanishing viscosity limit of the Navier-Stokes
equations is investigated in this book and solved for a number of
particular, but physically relevant cases.

This book will serve as a unique resource for those studying singular
perturbations and boundary layer problems at the advanced graduate
level in mathematics or applied mathematics and may be useful for
practitioners in other related fields in science and engineering such
as aerodynamics, fluid mechanics, geophysical fluid mechanics,
acoustics and optics.  Link:

Post-Moore Computing Tutorial at ASPLOS'19, Apr 14, 8:30am-12pm

by Jason Riedy and Jeffrey Young (Georgia Institute of Technology)

This tutorial will provide an overview of the new "Post-Moore" testbed
hosted by Georgia Tech, the CRNCH Rogues Gallery in the Center for
Research into Novel Computing Hierarchies (CRNCH).  Attendees will
gain detailed technical knowledge of platforms along with the lessons
learned so far from current research.  The tutorial includes hands-on
work with rogue systems in our gallery including the Emu Chick and an
analog neuromorphic platform, the Field Programmable Analog Array
(FPAA). Attendees will be able to work with the Emu toolchain and will
learn more about what post-Moore computing systems might look like and
how they will be used.  In addition, this tutorial will provide
attendees an overview or related tools and benchmarks so they can
continue research with post-Moore computing after the event.

Subject: Graduate Student Modeling Workshop (IMSM 2019), USA, Jul 2019

The 25th Industrial Mathematical & Statistical Modeling (IMSM)
Workshop for Graduate Students will take place at North Carolina State
University in Raleigh, NC, between July 14-24, 2019.  The workshop is
sponsored by the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences
Institute (SAMSI) along with the Center for Research in Scientific
Computation (CRSC), and the Dept. of Mathematics at North Carolina
State University.

The IMSM workshop exposes graduate students in mathematics, statistics
and engineering to exciting real-world problems from industry and
government.  The workshop provides students with experience in a
research team environment and exposure to possible career
opportunities.  On the first day, a bootcamp on building software in
teams will bring students up-to-date on programming skills and
introduce them to version control systems and software repositories.

Local expenses and travel support will be covered for graduate
students at US institutions that are admitted to the workshop.

The official application deadline is April 15, 2019, but full
consideration will be given to all applications received prior to
April 30, 2019.

Subject: SparseDays 2019, France, Jul 2019

The Annual Sparse Days meeting will be held at CERFACS in Toulouse on
11 and 12 July 2019.  This is immediately before the ICIAM 2019
Congress in Valencia which is a driveable distance from Toulouse and
accessible by train and plane.

As usual, there is no registration fee but interested parties should
nevertheless register using the website  The deadline for doing this is 14
June but it well help our organization greatly if you could do this as
soon as possible.  When you register, you should indicate whether you
want to give a talk and whether you want to attend our traditional
conference dinner on the evening of Thursday 11th.

The normal length for the talk and questions is 30 minutes but this is
open to negotiation in either direction subject to the fact that as
usual we will not be having parallel sessions.
