Thomas Humphries, 'Superiorized algorithm for metal artifact reduction'.
Joe Umhofer (OSU), 'How to choose a Stokes solver for upscaled results.'
Bamdad Hosseini (SFU) 'An MCMC algorithm for Bayesian inference with self-decomposable priors.'

Paulina Sepulveda (PSU), 'Elasticity equations in a flume model.'

Nilima Nigam (SFU), 'Bayesian optimization in shape optimization'

Jeff Ovall (PSU), 'Efficient evaluation of the Dirichlet problem and its derivatives.'

Marie Graff-Kray (UBC),'Adaptive eigenspace method for inverse scattering problems in the frequency domain.'

Ben Adcock (SFU), 'Approximating smooth, high-dimensional functions in irregular domains.'

Jay Gopalakrishnan (PSU) 'Space-time DPG for the Schrodinger equation.'
Kirill Voronin (PSU), 'Meshing and visualization in 4-D'.

Bala Krishnamoorty (WSU), 'Image correspondence recovery via binary quadratic programming (PQB).'

Ben Rapone (WSU), 'Minimum homotopy area.'

Harri Hakula (Aalto U.), 'Seductive FEM benchmarks or how I learned to love Geometric Function Theory.'
