Mission

The Institute for Applied Mathematics and Computational Science (IAMCS) is fundamentally a collection of applied mathematicians, statisticians, and computer scientists dedicated to the promotion of leading edge research within the interdisciplinary field broadly known as the computational sciences. Computational science is both a fundamental research field and an enabling capacity, able to influence virtually every other field of scientific endeavor. It is our mission to engage in the underlying development of the core field of computational science through research on cutting edge problems that are motivated and framed by their ability to enable fundamental research in other disciplines.

Establishment

IAMCS was established as the result of a Global Research Partnership (GRP) award from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and is a joint effort of Texas A&M University and the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute at the University of Utah. In June 2008, IAMCS received official Institute designation by the A&M System Board of Regents.  The Global Research Partnership ended August 2014, however, IAMCS continues to operate independently.

Activities

IAMCS holds a series of events throughout the year related to fundamental research within computational science, and collaborative research with areas where computational science can provide novel insight. The Seminar link on our tool bar provides access to our colloquium calendar. The Calendar on the right of the page provides links to colloquia and major events throughout the year.
