The George Washington University Chapter of SIAM: Conference on Applied Mathematics, held in late April at George Washington University (GW) in Washington, D.C., brought together speakers from universities and companies to present their work.
Researchers from Columbia University; John Hopkins University; the University of Maryland, College Park; George Mason University; and Fugue, Inc. delivered lectures. Attendees included undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and experts from institutions in the Washington, D.C., metro area.
“We were excited to bring together students and faculty from the East Coast,” Chong Wang, president of the GW chapter, said. “The conference—with great diversity—was very successful, and it was all possible due to the generosity of SIAM and the GW Department of Mathematics. Many students expanded their networks and definitely learned something new!”
“I liked that the event brought in people of diverse backgrounds,” one attendee remarked. “The topics were interesting, professional, and covered a nice range.”
The George Washington University Chapter of SIAM would like to thank SIAM and GW’s Department of Mathematics for the financial support. We look forward to hosting students from across the region again in 2018.
