The Applied and Computational Mathematics Division holds a regular Seminar Series with participation in both the Gaithersburg and Boulder campuses. This is a listing of past and future seminars starting from 2017. For seminars prior to 2017, please visit the old Division Seminar Page.
Recordings of talks will be made available to NIST staff for 12 months on the Math channel in NISTube. (NISTube is accessible from the NIST internal home page.) After 12 months, the recording will be removed from NISTube and archived. NIST staff can request archived recordings by contacting the ACMD Seminar Chair listed below.
NEW FOR 2023: Introducing, Virtual Viewing as a mechanism to encourage in-person participation and discussion for entirely virtual seminars. Even when the seminar speaker is remote and presenting through an entirely virtual means, on campus common spaces will be reserved at the Gaithersburg and Boulder sites to encourage in-person interaction and participation. Email announcements and specific seminar web pages will contain relevant details. Please consider joining us on campus for these virtual viewings despite a remote speaker.
