Former JSC Summer Student Among Finalists of BGCE Best Student Paper Prize
Every two years the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) organizes its premier conference in Computational Science and Engineering (CSE). It has become an established tradition of the CSE conference to host the awards ceremony of the Bavarian Graduate School of Computational Engineering’s Student Paper Prize for outstanding student work in the field of Computational Science and Engineering. Since 2007, at every conference eight student finalists have been chosen by expert reviewers and invited to the awards ceremony. This year, a former student of the JSC Guest Student Programme (GSP), Marija Kranjcevic, was among the finalists of the Student Prize.
Marija Kranjcevic is a Master’s student in Applied Mathematics at the University of Zagreb. She participated in the JSC GSP in summer 2014, working on the shared memory parallelization of the Chebyshev Accelerated Subspace iteration Eigensolver (ChASE) developed within the SimLab 'ab initio'. She reported on the work she carried on during the summer programme in a paper which was recognized for its outstanding quality and excellence. As one of the eight selected finalists, Marija was invited to give a talk on her work on ChASE to this year's CSE conference, which was held from 13 to 18 March in Salt Lake City, Utah. The fact that she was among the BGCE finalists testifies to the exceptional quality and high standards of the JSC summer programme.
