University of Reading SIAM-IMA Student Chapter Conference, June 2017

On Friday 16th May, the University of Reading SIAM-IMA student chapter hosted their annual conference. Over 40 staff and students attended from a variety of institutions, including the University of Bath, the University of Oxford, Imperial College, London and Brunel University London.

Keynote talks were given by Dr Melina Freitag (University of Bath) on saddle point formulations for data assimilation and Dr Tim Rogers (University of Bath) on how to explain collaborative behaviour as a result of evolution using stochastic noise.

Student talks were given on a broad range of topics within applied mathematics, with applications including meteorology, finance and neuroscience. The prize for the best talk, judged by conference attendees, was given to Tom Bendall of Imperial College, London. Florian Klimm, from the University of Oxford was the runner-up.

The poster session provided another opportunity for students to present their work in an informal setting over lunch. Prizes were awarded to Dan Derrick and Nicola Thorn, both from the University of Reading.

The event concluded with a conference dinner, which was a great chance for everyone to relax and reflect on the day. The organising committee would like to thank all of the speakers, presenters and attendees as well as SIAM, the IMA and the University of Reading who all supported the event.
