ICIAM: Call for Minisymposia (deadline September 30, 2014)

8th International Congress of Industrial and Applied Mathematics 2015: Call for Minisymposia

Beijing, China
August 10–14, 2015

This congress is the main activity of the International Council of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM), held every four years. In 2015 it will be in Beijing from August 10–14. IMS joined ICIAM as an associate member in 2012, in the conviction that both applied mathematics, and probability and statistics, can gain a lot from an intensified collaboration and exchange of ideas. Just a few topics of interest to both communities are biological models, mathematical finance, filtering and data assimilation, stochastic PDE’s, uncertainty quantification in PDE models, compressed sensing and Monte Carlo methods.

The importance of probability and statistics is also reflected in the list of invited speakers, which includes several IMS members and researchers who have published in IMS journals: Martin Hairer, Shige Peng, Nancy Reid and Simon Tavaré.

In addition, there is the possibility to submit proposals for minsymposia at the conference. A minisymposium consists of four 25-minute presentations plus five minutes of discussions after each presentations. A minisymposium organizer is encouraged to make the first presentation and should find three other speakers on the same topic, preferably from different institutions. The deadline for submitting a proposal for a minisymposium is September 30, 2014. Such a proposal should contain a title, a description of the topic (not to exceed 100 words) and a list of speakers and titles of their presentations. Hopefully, many IMS members will take advantage of this occasion to foster interactions of probability and statistics with applied mathematics.

Welcome to the IMS Bulletin website! We are developing the way we communicate news and information more effectively with members. The print Bulletin is still with us (free with IMS membership), and still available as a PDF to download, but in addition, we are placing some of the news, columns and articles on this blog site, which will allow you the opportunity to interact more. We are always keen to hear from IMS members, and encourage you to write articles and reports that other IMS members would find interesting. Contact the IMS Bulletin at bulletin@imstat.org

What is “Open Forum”?

In the Open Forum, any IMS member can propose a topic for discussion. Email your subject and an opening paragraph (to bulletin@imstat.org) and we'll post it to start off the discussion. Other readers can join in the debate by commenting on the post. Search other Open Forum posts by using the Open Forum category link below. Start a discussion today!
