The Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) student chapter at U-M is hosting a SIAM Student Conference on November 13th from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM in East Hall. The goal of the conference is to connect U-M students who create and/or use novel mathematical methods in their research. The conference will include keynote presentations by Professors Peter Miller (Math) and Ian Hiskens (EECS), as well as selected student talks.
All Michigan graduate students are eligible to present at the conference. The talk should be 20 minutes in length and should include a discussion of a novel mathematical theory or method. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Fluid dynamics
  • Imaging science
  • Optimization
  • Control theory
  • Financial mathematics
  • Probability
  • Mathematical biology
  • Scientific computing
  • Mathematical physics
  • Dynamical systems
  • Modeling and simulation
  • Information science
