The HMC Mathematics Department is organizing two great conferences this year.

2010 SIAM Annual Meeting is happening in Pittsburgh! Check out

2010 HMC Mathematics Conference on the Mathematics of Environmental Sustainability and Green Technology (January 29 - January 30)
This year's conference hosted by Mathematics Department is The Mathematics of Environmental Sustainability and Green Technology. Here is an excerpt from the site:

"On Friday night, a panel of researchers from the Claremont Colleges and representatives from environmental groups in Claremont will share what research and development are happening in the Claremont community and at the colleges. On Saturday, we will have four speakers from a variety of disciplines who will pose problems and challenges of interest to the mathematics community. This collection of talks from the perspective of mathematics, engineering, physics, and atmospheric science will provide an overview of the cutting edge of research in energy and sustainability. A poster session will provide an opportunity for participants, including undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, and faculty to share their research with attendees."

Speakers who will be presenting are:
  • Harry Atwater (Caltech) - 9:30 AM (01/30/09): Light–Matter Interactions for Solar Energy Conversion.
  • Ken Golden (University of Utah) - 11:00 AM (01/30/09): Climate Change and the Mathematics of Transport in Sea Ice.
  • Julie Lundquist (University of Colorado Boulder) - 1:30 PM (01/30/09): Harnessing the Power of the Wind. 
  • Ron Lloyd (Fat Spaniel Technologies) - 3:00 PM (01/30/09): Modeling Problems in the Green Economy.
In addition to speakers, there will be a poster session. Check out for more information.
