IPAM Electronic Newsletter



The Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) invites you to scroll = through its WINTER 2009 newsletter. The programs and workshops described below = should appeal to the interests and needs of a broad range of researchers and = are designed to foster interdisciplinary research between mathematicians and scientists working in other disciplines. We encourage you to visit our = website at for more information on individual programs = and events. If you are interested in proposing either a 3-month or short = program at IPAM, please visit or = contact the Director, Russel Caflisch.




Now Accepting Applications for IPAM Associate = Director


The Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics at UCLA is seeking an = Associate Director, to begin July 2009 and serve for two years. The AD is expected = to be an active and established research mathematician or scientist in a = related field, with experience in conference organization and = administration.  For the full job description, go to Candidates may = send their application materials and questions to Applications = will receive fullest consideration if received by February 1, 2009. UCLA is = an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.




Accepting Applications for Research in Industrial Projects for Students: RIPS-LA = and RIPS-Beijing 2009 through Feb. 15


Please refer exceptional undergraduate students of mathematics, engineering, = computer science, and physical and life science disciplines to for information on this unique summer REU = program in applied mathematics.  IPAM is offering both RIPS-LA and = RIPS-Beijing in 2009.


Last year's RIPS-LA project sponsors included Arete, Symantec, Pixar, JPL, = and Amgen. Students will be in-residence at UCLA for nine weeks.  = International students are eligible.


RIPS-Beijing, in collaboration with Microsoft Research Asia, will run concurrently. = Students will be in-residence in Beijing for eight weeks.  English is the only language required for = participation.  U.S. citizens and permanent residents may apply through IPAM; Chinese = nationals may apply through MSRA.


Juniors and seniors are especially encouraged to apply. The application is = available online.  Applications are due Feb. 15, = 2009





Upcoming IPAM Long Programs:


Each IPAM long program will involve a community of senior and junior = researchers. The intent is for long-term participants to have an opportunity to learn = about the topic of the program from the perspectives of many different fields = and to meet a diverse group of people and have an opportunity to form new = collaborations. In addition to these activities, there will be opening tutorials, four workshops (each one is listed under "upcoming workshops"), and = a culminating workshop at Lake Arrowhead. = Funding is available both to attend our entire 3-month program and to attend = individual workshops; those interested are encouraged to apply through the website = of the program that interests them.  Applications received at least six = weeks in advance of the long program will receive fullest = consideration.
