*International Conference on Preconditioning Techniques for Scientific and Industrial Applications*

Location: TU Eindhoven

Date: June 17-19, 2015

Description: The International Conference on Preconditioning Techniques for Scientific and Industrial Applications, Preconditioning 2015, is the ninth in a series of conferences that focus on preconditioning techniques in sparse matrix computation.* *

Organizer: Prof.Dr. W.H.A. Schilders (TU Eindhoven)

Location: Woudschoten, Zeist

Date: October 7 – 9, 2015

Organizers: Werkgemeenschap Scientific Computing (Chair prof. C.W. Oosterlee (CWI & TU Delft), Secretary drs. M. Nool (CWI)), Program committee 2015: prof. W.H. Hundsdorfer (CWI/RUN, chair), prof. R.H. Bisseling (UU), prof. B. Koren (TU/e), prof. C.W. Oosterlee (CWI & TU Delft), prof. D. Roose (KU Leuven).

Description: Each year the “Werkgemeenschap Scientific Computing” (WSC) organizes a three-day conference on scientific computing in Woudschoten, Zeist. In the WSC all groups active in scientific computing at universities in the Netherlands (including CWI) and Flanders (Belgium) participate. The attendance of this conference during the past 10 years has been 100-140 people. Many PhD students and staff members of the participating groups attend this conference.

A report of the seminar on December 8, 2015 in Utrecht:

One of the goals of AMI is to support the educational and research staff of the three Technical Universities in The Netherlands and to achieve greater cooperation between the universities in several research fields. The purpose of this kind of seminars is to think about, to evaluate and to find answers about the added value of AMI with regard to these themes.

Thanks to the AMI budget for new research positions the three deans of Applied Mathematics were able to recruit four new colleagues. During this seminar they have presented themselves and unfolded their research and future research plans to the audience.

1. Kees Oosterlee in the name of Lech Grzelak (Numerical Analysis, TUD)

2. Leo van Iersel ( Optimization, TUD)

3. Jasper Goseling (Stochastic Operations Research, UT)

4. Edwin van de Heuvel (Statistics,TUE)

1. __Kees Oosterlee __*’s lecture was about the work of* Lech Grzelak*, concerning more efficient models and better understanding of risk in finance. Lech was a master student of Prof.dr. R.M. Cooke and did his master’s thesis in cooperation with the Gasunie. The subject of his PhD was in the field of computational finance, under supervision of Prof.dr.ir. C.W. Oosterlee. Currently he is employed for four days a week by the Rabobank and one day by the TU Delft. The focus of his research lies on long term investments, products with a running time of 30 years. The mathematical subjects (domains) involved are: stochastic differential equations and Monte-Carlo methods.*
