Welcome to Manchester SIAM-IMA Student Chapter!

The University of Manchester SIAM-IMA Student Chapter encourages the promotion of applied mathematics and computational science to students, especially, but not limited to, graduate students. The Chapter was set up in December 2009, and is run by a committee of PhD and Masters students at The University of Manchester, with help from our Faculty Advisors Nicholas J. Higham and David Silvester.

If you are a member of SIAM and an IMA e-Student, you can join the Chapter now by filling the registration form. SIAM membership is free of charge for all the students of the University of Manchester, if you are not a SIAM member yet you can apply here. To become an IMA e-Student follow the instructions on the IMA site.

You can also follow us on Twitter or join our Facebook group.

#MSISCC17 update

11 months ago

Thank you to everyone who attended the conference. We hope you enjoyed, and got as much out of the day as we in the committee did. In particular we would like to thank all those who presented, including our plenary speakers and students with talks and posters.

Congratulations to our prize winners: the prize for best poster went to Paul Russell, and the prizes for best talks went to Helena Stage and Pallav Kant

If you haven't yet joined SIAM, membership is free for all students. For postgraduates this should be straightforward, but for undergraduates you may need a nonstudent nomination; if you have any trouble let us know and we should be able to help sort it out.

In addition, you can sign up as an IMA e-Student for free here, and if you haven't yet joined the Manchester SIAM-IMA Student Chapter, the registration page is here.

The next major Chapter event will be our AGM, which will take place in mid June. If you are signed up as a Chapter member you will receive an email about this soon. We will also be continuing our math dot seminar series through the summer, so look out for that too.

The group photo from the event is below (click here for a higher resolution version). If you have any good photos of the conference that you would let us use for future publicity, please send them to us!
