SIAM-IMA Student Chapter
Welcome to the home of the University of Reading SIAM-IMA Student Chapter!
We are a student chapter of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) and the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), run by a committee of PhD students from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics (MathsStats) at the University of Reading.
We aim to encourage the exchange and development of ideas and information from different mathematical backgrounds and at various stages of study, via a programme of events and activities throughout the year. We also hope to develop links to industry, through partnerships with relevant organisations, to provide our members with information and insight into continuing mathematical research as a career option.
You are welcome to contact us personally if you are interested in joining our committee! We are always happy to hear from you, also if you are from different backgrounds, including meteorology or computer science or anything maths related.
Meet the chapter and other PhD students and have some fun playing board games with us. Everyone is welcome and the best part: there will be free drinks, beer and pizza.
Please sign up here to let us know you're coming.
The chapter hosts a fortnightly seminar series with internal and external PhD students and researchers presenting their work. The seminars are planned to be hybrid, so you have the choice to come along in person or join us virtually over Teams. The next dates and talks are:
You want to give a talk yourself in a friendly and welcoming environment? Feel free to put your name down in our shared timetable. Past talks and abstracts can also be found in the spreadsheet.
We host an annual conference where we invite senior researchers and PhD students to present their work. This year in June we were delighted to virtually welcome Prof. Francoise Tisseur, Dr. Naratip Santitissadeekorn, Prof. Jan Sieber and six early career researchers and the conference was a great success. All the abstracts of the conference can be found here.
