Project Summary Overview NSF funding is requested to support the International Conference on Spectral and High Order Methods (ICOSAHOM) which will be held in June 2014, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Funding will be targeted to provide fellowships for minorities and women, particularly those who are at early career levels. It will also provide the expenses of the two US female invited speakers. Objectives The purpose of the ICOSAHOM conference series is to bring together researchers and practitioners with an interest in the theoretical, computational and applied aspects of high-order and spectral methods for the solution of differential equations impacting increasingly diverse and important applications. The conference engages a broad group of researchers at all career stages representing the mathematical sciences and engineering, as well as practitioners from multiple industrial and government communities. The format of the meeting includes both invited papers as well as submitted contributions in order to encourage wider participation especially from young scientists and under-represented minorities. Intellectual merit Spectral and high-order methods have become increasingly important in multiple and diverse applications such as aeroacoustics, bioengineering, electromagnetics, ocean and climate modeling, seismology, turbulent flows, non-Newtonian flows, nonlinear optics, plasma dynamics, image processing and uncertainty quantification. Subjects of the meeting include, but are not limited to spectral methods, high-order finite difference methods, p- and h-p type finite element methods, discontinuous Galerkin methods, ENO/WENO methods, high order methods for integral equations, wavelet-based methods, stochastic methods, efficient solvers and preconditioners for high order methods, efficient time-stepping methods, as well as computational aspects for modern hardware environments. All papers presented at the conference will undergo a thorough review process by the members of the scientific committee of ICOSAHOM and other external referees. Broader impacts The ICOSAHOM proceedings will appear as a special volume of the book series Lecture Notes in Computational Science and Engineering, published by Springer. This will serve as an account for recent developments and interests within the scope of the conference. A web site for the conferencehttp://www.icosahom2014.org/ provides information on the program and will serve as a repository for conference information. The format of this moderately-sized conference provides an opportunity for networking and career advancement for junior academics. Target of funding to women and minorities facilitates their engagement in this important field of computational mathematics.
