ICIAM 2015 in Beijing

The 8th International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM 2015) held in Beijing, China, in August was a great success, drawing over 3,400 attendees. A stellar lineup of invited speaker sessions and minisymposia, prize lectures, and poster sessions contributed to the meeting’s success. 

Recipients of the five ICIAM prizes for 2015 received their awards and delivered prize lectures: Annalisa Buffa (Institute for Applied Mathematics and Information Technologies, Pavia-Genoa-Milan section) received the Collatz Prize; Andrew J. Majda (Courant Institute at New York University) received the Lagrange Prize; Jean-Michel Coron (Université Pierre et Marie Curie) received the Maxwell Prize; Björn Engquist (The University of Texas at Austin) received the Pioneer Prize; and Li Tatsien (Fudan University) received the Su Buchin Prize.
