Subject: Retired from NCAR

I retired from NCAR Sept. 30, 1999.  Ginger Caldwell is handling outside
computer requests and can be reached at cal@ucar.edu.  I will be checking my
email messages periodically for at least the next year.  In particular, I will
try to answer questions arising from the use of software packages

    MUDPACK, FISHPACK, SPHEREPACK, REGRIDPACK.

John Adams

    Editor's Note: I do not usually report retirements, but I know that a
    -------------  number of readers use MUDPACK and might be interested in
                   the new contact information.

          Postdoctoral position at the Weizmann Institute

  The Gauss Center for Scientific Computation at the Weizmann Institute
of Science, Rehovot, Israel, is seeking a qualified candidate for a
Post-Doctoral position, to participate in the Center's development of
advanced multiscale computational methods. Possible directions include:

    1. Multigrid methods, especially in fluid dynamics
    2. Data assimilation in atmospheric simulations
    3. Ab-initio quantum chemistry (many-eigenfunction problems)
    4. Wave phenomena
    5. Optimal feedback control
    6. Computational physics: multiscale Monte-Carlo and Dirac solvers
    7. Fast medical-imaging and radar reconstruction
    8. Molecular dynamics
    9. Multiscale image processing

  Applicants should have completed their Ph.D. studies between
January 1998, and the appointment start date. They should have a
strong background and programming experience in scientific computing,
preferably in one of the above areas and/or in multiscale computational
methods.

  The post-doc appointment is for a period of one or two years and in some
cases may be extended for a third year. It carries a monthly stipend and
provides an annual fund for scientific travel.

  Applications and request for further information should be sent to
the Gauss Center Secretary:

                   Mrs. Carol Weintraub
                   Dept. of Applied Mathematics & Computer Science
                   The Weizmann Institute of Science
                   Rehovot 76100, Israel
                   Email: carol@wisdom.weizmann.ac.il
                   Fax: +972-8-9342945
                   Phone: +972-8-9343545

The application should include a CV, a description of previous
experience in scientific computing and the particular areas of
interest, and names of two referees, who should separately send
their letters of recommendation to the above address.

Congress Announcement:  ICCAM-2000

     An International congress on Computational and Aplied Mathematics
will be organized on July 17-July 21, 2000 at the University of Leuven,
Belgium.
     The congress will bring together people working on the analysis and
application of computational techniques for solving real scientific problems.
     The list of invited speakers includes:
     Baker C.T.H. (U.K.), van Dooren P. (Belgium),  Pryce J.D. (U.K.),
     Watson L.T. (USA), Sloan D. (U.K.), Brezinski C. (France),
     Yamamoto T. (Japan), Meek D.S. (Canada).
Short communications will be accepted for presentation. An abstract of
at most 1 page should be sent before March 30, 2000 to:
                Prof. M. Goovaerts, K.U. Leuven
                CRIR, Minderbroederstraat 5, B-3000 Leuven (Belgium)
                e-mail:   Marc.Goovaerts@econ.kuleuven.ac.be
     ICCAM-2000 will also concentrate on the project "Numerical Analysis
in the 20th century". Several survey talks will be given covering different
fields of numerical analysis.
     The Proceedings of ICCAM-2000 will be published in the Journal on
Computational and Applied Mathematics.
