Description

From points of view ranging from science to public policy, there is a growing interest in modeling and simulation of geosystems and their applications. Some examples include petroleum exploration and recovery, underground waste disposal and cleanup of hazardous waste, earthquake prediction, weather prediction, and global climate change. Such modeling is fundamentally interdisciplinary; physical and mathematical modeling at appropriate scales, physical experiments, mathematical theory, probability and statistics, numerical approximations, and large-scale computational algorithms all have important roles to play.
This conference facilitates communication between scientists of varying backgrounds and work environments facing similar issues in different fields, and provides a forum in which advances in parts of the larger modeling picture can become known to those working in other parts. These kinds of interactions are needed for meaningful progress in understanding and predicting complex physical phenomena in the geosciences.

Dear Colleagues,

The next SIAM Conference on Mathematical and Computational Issues in the Geosciences will be organized at Stanford University, June 29 – July 2, 2015. The themes are (at large) mathematical models and methods in the Geosciences. More details can be found in the attached flyer, and at
http://www.siam.org/meetings/gs15/

Your participation is warmly welcome!

Minisymposia:
The organizers would like to encourage you to organize minisymposia. If needed, please, feel free to discuss possible proposals with members of the committee. Please, note some changes in policy when compared to the previous editions. These changes have been made to retain an acceptable level of parallelism in the conference sessions:
- A minisymposium consists of six 15-minute presentations, with an additional five minutes for discussion after each presentation. Prospective minisymposium organizers are asked to submit a proposal consisting of a title, a description (not to exceed 100 words), and a list of speakers and titles of their presentations using the Conference Management System available at: http://meetings.siam.org/start.cfm?CONFCODE=gs15.
- A minisymposium organizer may submit up to two minisymposium sessions but is strongly encouraged to only submit proposal for a single session. Any organizers asking for two sessions may be asked to reduce the number of speakers, or coordinate with other minisymposia that might be overlapping or closely related.
- The GS15 Organizers also wish to encourage minisymposium organizers to leave two of the six slots open so that they can be filled by contributed talks on related topics.
We hope to meet all of you at the conference!
Thank you for your attention and best regards,
Sorin Pop (on behalf of the Organizing committee)
