The Michigan Center for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (MCIAM) at the Michigan State University is pleased to announce a two-day workshop on April 15-16, 2011, on ``Computational Wave Propagation'', a follow-up to the successful 2010 IMA PI Summer Program for Graduate Students at the Michigan State University on computational wave propagation.
One of the main objectives of the MCIAM center is to expose local, national and international industry to skills and tools that modern applied mathematics can bring to bear on multiscale problems. Problems of interests are non-linear and span many temporal and spatial scales, making these problems challenging from both analytical and numerical perspectives. While modeling has been used as a tool to bridge a wide range of scales, it is the combination of modeling with simulation and analysis that has led to a range of successful tools for exploring these problems; yet there are many problems that remain well beyond the existing capabilities.
This MCIAM workshop will focus on Theory, Computation, and Applications of Wave Propagation. A main goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers in various fields that involve analysis and computation of wave related inverse problems. The workshop aims to offer a comfortable and spirited gathering at a small scale to promote exchange of ideas between colleagues in computation, analysis, and modeling of inverse problems along with applications, and to explore future research directions. At the same time, we will bring back those graduate students to share experience after the summer school.

The local airport is Lansing Airport (Code: LAN), and the major airport hub near the Lansing area is Detroit Airport (Code: DTW). Many flights to LAN are either from DTW or Chicago.
If you are going through Detroit, then you may either fly to LAN, or rent a car, or take the Michigan Flyer shuttle bus from Detroit to East Lansing. The shuttle bus terminal at East Lansing is close to the Kellogg Center where the conference is going to be held; this bus even has wireless internet connection.
There are two other nearby airports: the Grand Rapids airport (Code: GRR) and the Flint Airport (Code: FNT). They are all in one-hour driving distance to East Lansing. If you choose to use one of these two airports, then you need to rent a car. We will be happy to cover your car rentals as well.
The registration fee is waived for invited speakers. The registration fee is $100 for a non-student participant and $30 for a student participant. The registration fee must be payable to ``Michigan State University-MCIAM Workshop'' via check or money order. Graduate students and postdocs are strongly encouraged to participate in the workshop. If there are any questions regarding registration, please contact Jianliang Qian (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Registration Form is here for download.
There is some limited financial support available, on a competitive basis, for participating graduate students and postdocs. The support will cover up to $400 of the expenses incurred. The participating graduate students and postdocs who are presenting posters will have priority to get the partial support.
To apply for support, prospective students and postdocs must:
Both the letter and project description should be submitted via email to email@example.com with the subject line ``MCIAM workshop request for support for FIRST AND LAST NAME''. Applications are due by April 2nd and notification of support will be given on April 9th.
The major funding is provided by the National Science Foundation.
Some partial funding is provided by MCIAM Center and Department of Mathematics.
