The biannual SciCADE (International Conference on Scientific Computation and Differential Equations) conference was hosted by the University of Innsbuck on July 22-26. The New Talent Award is given based on a submitted paper and the recipient should be a graduate student or have obtained the PhD degree not more than four years earlier. Normally the prize is given to a postdoctor, but Milo defended his licentiate thesis just over one year ago, and there is yet some time before he is finished with his PhD thesis.
The paper that impressed the prize committee is called Lie-Poisson methods for isospectral flows, and is written together with Milo's supervisor Klas Modin. It can be downloaded via arXiv. As a winner of the best paper, Milo gave a plenary talk at the conference, and got his registration fee and local expenses covered.
