Newsletter 04/2012

Dear colleagues,

Before the holiday season starts, we would like to inform you about our annual meeting and the GAMM meeting in 2013, the upcoming elections, and - as usual - the latest job and workshop advertisements. Before doing so, let me say that we are very excited to be able to already report several successes with our job forum.

Our Annual Meeting 2013

The location of our next annual meeting is now decided upon. It will take place in the beautiful Kurhaus Trifels (see in Annweiler from September 30 to October 2, 2013. One highlight will be the plenary talks by

  • Christine de Mol (Brüssel)
  • Jan Modersitzky (Lübeck)
  • Christoph Schnörr (Heidelberg)

We will notify you once registration for this event is open.

GAMM Conference 2013

We would like to encourage you to attend the GAMM Conference 2013, which takes place in Novi Sad, Serbia from March 18th to March 22th, 2013. Some particular highlights of this conferences are the following:
  • Our Section "Mathematical Signal and Image Processing" organized by Otmar Scherzer (Wien) and Gitta Kutyniok (Berlin). For submission of contributed talks, please visit the website The deadline is December 17, 2013.
  • Young Researchers Minisymposium "Compressed Sensing and Applications" organized by Felix Krahmer (Göttingen) and Rayan Saab (Durham). If you plan to attend, please note that the registration fee is significantly reduced for GAMM members. If you then decide to join, please just mention two of us as "Fürsprecher".


Following the opinion of some members of our activity group,
  • Gitta Kutyniok (Berlin)
was suggested for the next election of the executive board of GAMM. If you would like to support this suggestion and are a GAMM member, you can do so by writing a support letter to the GAMM office at This email address is being protected from spambots.
