The NUI Galway Student Chapter of SIAM held their second annual conference on 3 December 2015. This one-day conference brought together research students from universities throughout Ireland and further afield. Local participants were joined by researchers from the University of Limerick, University College Dublin, Dublin Institute of Technology, and Trinity College Dublin, while the presence of attendees from UNINA (Naples), Politecnico di Torino (Turin) and Zhejiang University (China) lent an international atmosphere to the day.
The plenary speakers on the day were Prof. James Gleeson (MACSI, UL), who spoke about information contagion on social networks, and Dr Dana Mackey (DIT) who spoke about her work on immunosensors and the dynamics of interdisciplinary collaborations. They were joined by seven student speakers, with topics including differential privacy, drug delivery, infectious disease modelling, solar collectors, geophysical waves, steel casting, and phase and precession evolution in the Burgers equation. At the conclusion of proceedings, Gary O’Keeffe of the University of Limerick was awarded the prize for best student speaker. The event was generously supported by SIAM, MACSI at the University of Limerick, the Stokes Cluster for Applied Mathematics and the Mathematics Society at NUI Galway.
