Gene Golub SIAM Summer School 2014
Simulation, Optimization, and Identification in Solid Mechanics
4 August - 15 August 2014, Linz, Austria
For the SIAM Gene Golub Summer School 2014, we invite graduate students (working toward a M. Sc. or PhD or equivalent)
from all countries and from all related disciplines to apply.
Attendance will be restricted to up to 40 well-qualified participants, who will be selected by a committee based on the
documents sent by the students as detailed below.
It is part of the summer school's mission statement to increase diversity in the Computational Sciences.
We therefore particularly encourage female students and students from under-represented minorities to apply,
as well as students from smaller institutions.
Required Documents and Deadline
The deadline for applications will be: 1 February 2014.
In order to apply for the Gene Golub SIAM Summer School 2014, please send the following documents,
preferably as a single PDF file to
A personal statement that describes your motivation to take part in the summer school (1 page max.)
A short CV/resume (2 pages max.) that should also describe your academic background
An application for financial support (see below)
Scanned transcripts of relevant classes (only course titles and grades).
All the documents should be in English, and in pdf format only.
Applying for Financial Support
The generous sponsorship from SIAM and several other institutions (see the list of sponsors on the front page)
makes it possible that all selected participants will have their lodging and meals covered but the school.
In addition, we will (at least partially) reimburse reasonable travel expense upon application.
If you require travel support please indicate the expected amount in your application.
While it is our goal to refund expenses for as many participants as we can, we cannot make
guarantees at this point.
Candidates are strongly encouraged to inquire whether travel support is available with their
advisor or institution, and indicate so in their application.
Funding decisions will be communicated in the notification letters of the successful candidates.
In any case, this will not influence the decision on admission to the school, and we will make
every effort to fund most travel for those who need it.
Questions concerning the summer school in general, how to apply, or any other question,
