The “Isogeometric Analysis: Integrating Design and Analysis (IGA 2014) Workshop” Jan. 8-10 will be the third in a continuing series of ICES thematic workshops drawing top worldwide experts in specific disciplines. The workshop will occur in the AT&T Conference Center and is co-sponsored by USACM.
ICES Professor Thomas J. R. Hughes will serve as host, along with organizers Yuri Bazilevs and David Benson, of the University of California, San Diego, Tor Dokken, SINTEF, Trond Kvamsdal, NTNU, and Alessandro Reali, University of Pavia.
The workshop’s purpose is to bring together geometry and analysis experts interested in developing the new generation of analysis procedures based upon modern computational geometry. Read more.Posted: Jan. 2, 2014

ICES Professor Luis Caffarelli, was named recipient of the 2014 American Mathematical Society (AMS) Leroy P. Steele Prize for Seminal Contribution to Research. Caffarelli is a professor of mathematics, and shares the prize with Robert Kohn, and Louis Nirenberg, professors of mathematics at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. Presented annually by AMS, the Steele Prize is one of the highest distinctions in mathematics. The prize will be presented on Thursday, January 16, 2014, at the AMS Joint Mathematics Meetings in Baltimore. Read more.Posted: Dec. 5, 2013
ICES Professor Thomas J.R. Hughes delivered the inaugural Ted Belytschko Lecture at Northwestern University Nov. 25.
His lecture, “Isogeometric Analysis, Phase-field Modeling and Fracture,” explored isogeometric analysis, a computational approach that integrates computer-aided drafting (CAD) and finite element analysis (FEA) technologies. Hughes summarized the mathematical developments that confirm the approach’s effectiveness, presented sample applications, and described his current work. Read more.Posted: Dec. 4, 2013
The Dallas Morning News has published Texan of the Year nominations for two ICES professors. Each year the newspaper selects a Texan who has had uncommon impact during the previous year.
University of Texas at Austin President Bill Powers nominated Tinsley Oden "as one who pushes the frontiers of knowledge and educates our state’s young people and whose work elevates the fortunes of the whole state." His nomination appeared in the Dallas Morning News Dec. 3. Read more.Posted: Dec. 3, 2013
