The First Annual SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) Chapter Day has been held at Cardiff University on 21 January 2013. This marks the formation of the first Student SIAM Chapter to be established in Wales. The event brought together over 70 research students and faculty in Mathematics and Engineering, and offered a platform for discussions on a range of topics from computational accuracy to mathematical modelling to engineering applications.
The programme included guest lectures by Nick Higham (University of Manchester), Alain Goriely (University of Oxford), Simon Cox (Aberystwyth University), and Matthew Gilbert (University of Sheffield), and poster presentations by doctoral students from Cardiff University and their guests from the Universities of Manchester, Aberystwyth, and Swansea.
