On 4 October, the Department of Mathematical Sciences hosted four distinguished members of the Computational Engineering Mathematics community- Carlos Brebbia (Director, Wessex Institute of Technology, Southampton, England), Jerry Conners (MIT Department of Civil Engineering), Paolo Zanetti (President, EnvirComp, California), Prasada Rao (Professor, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Calif State University, Fullerton). The group was led on a tour of West Point by Dr. Chris Arney and COL Doug McInvale, followed by a display and discussion on the unique military manuscripts and books at the West Point library by Dr. Fred Rickey. Faculty responsible for this successful event included COL Mason Crow, LTC Randy Boucher and COL Jake LaPorte. The distinguished visitors gave talks on CEM from their foundational work in the field motivating approximately 35 cadets and 30 faculty members from across the Academy on working on future projects and collaboration. The event was made possible by the relationship as colleagues of Ted Hromadka. The 2016 Colloquia in Computational Engineering Mathematics supported the educational priorities established in the department’s recent curricular revision.
