AARMS Summer School

The thirteenth annual AARMS Summer School will be held at Dalhousie University from July 21 to August 15, 2014. The summer school is intended for graduate students and promising undergraduate students from all parts of the world. Each participant is expected to register for at least two of the four courses. Each course consists of five ninety-minute lecture sessions each week. These are graduate courses approved by Dalhousie and we will facilitate transfer credit to the extent possible. Tuition and accommodation charges are covered by AARMS, but students must find their own funds for travel expenses. The courses offered in 2014 will be:

The deadline for applications is March 15, 2014. For more information, visit the summer school webpage or contact the Summer School Directors, Dr. Sara Faridi ( or Dr. Hong Gu (

The AARMS Summer School in 2014 is co-sponsored by CANSSI.

Recent Developments in Adaptive Methods for PDEs: AARMS-CRM Collaborative Workshop and Short Course

Second Call for Participation in: "Recent Developments in Adaptive Methods for PDEs" AARMS-CRM Short Course + Collaborative Workshop, organized by the Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical Sciences (AARMS) Collaborative Research Group in Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing, Aug. 17- 22, 2014, St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada.

this workshop is a collaborative initiative of the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques (CRM) and AARMS.

The aim of this workshop is to provide an introduction to the state of the art in theory and practical applications of adaptivity in PDEs. The program will begin with a two-day short course, "Adaptive Methods for the Numerical Solution of PDEs", given by Dr. Weizhang Huang (University of Kansas). The middle component of the program will focus on presentations by researchers whose work may benefit from the use of adaptive techniques for PDEs arising as mathematical models in practical applications. The final segment of the program will feature a workshop format in which breakout teams, consisting of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows led by experts on theoretical or computational aspects of adaptive methods for PDEs, will investigate the process of introducing adaptive techniques into the numerical simulations that arise in the applications identified earlier. The segment will also include several talks by researchers working in adaptivity for PDEs.

There are 3 ways to participate:

Registration is required. Partial travel support is available. Further details and registration information are available at

AARMS was founded in March 1996 at a time when the National Network for Research in the Mathematical Sciences was being discussed and planned. AARMS exists to encourage and advance research in mathematics, statistics, computer science, and mathematical sciences, in the Atlantic region. In addition, AARMS acts as a regional voice in discussions of the mathematical sciences on a national level. Since its inception, AARMS has played an important role in research activities in the Atlantic region, sponsoring or co-sponsoring numerous meetings and workshops. In the summer of 2002, AARMS initiated an annual Summer School for graduate students and promising undergraduates. Please write to us for information about the next AARMS Summer School.

AARMS is grateful the Province of New Brunswick and to the Province of Nova Scotia for their support for our activities. We are also grateful to Canada's three mathematical institutes, the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques, the Fields Institute, and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences as well as the member universities below.
