AARMS (the Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical Sciences), the CRM (Centre de Recherches Mathématiques), the AARMS Collaborative Research Group in Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing, the Centre for Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing at Memorial University of Newfoundland, and the Department of Mathematics and Computing Science at Saint Mary's University will bring researchers interested in Numerical Analysis of Singularly Perturbed Differential Equations to a 5-day workshop in beautiful Halifax, NS, Canada.

The meeting will consist of a 2-day short course on Numerical Analysis of Singularly Perturbed Differential Equations taught by leading expert Dr. Niall Madden (National University of Ireland, Galway), research level talks by experts in the field, and talks by academic and industrial researchers with applied problems who have an interest in applying these techniques. The final part of the workshop will be interactive, linking the applied researchers with numerical analysis experts to investigate the process of introducing parameter-robust techniques to their simulations.
