Eadaoin and Seánie presented posters at the conference (details of the posters are in separate blog posts).
Students from colleges throughout Ireland and the UK presented on a variety of topics as seen in the list of abstracts.
There were two plenary talks.
- Lea Deleris from IBM Research -Ireland: Taking Decision Making to the Next Level. She “ illustrates how applied interdisciplinary research, leveraging advances in artificial intelligence broadly defined, can provide solutions to bridge the gap between theory and practice and eventually bring rigorous decision making to the masses”.
- Patrick Farrell from Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford: Scalable Bifurcation Analysis of Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations.
There was also a round table discussion on careers in Mathematical Science which included the plenary speakers.
The 2018 ‘National’ Student Chapter Conference will be hosted by the SIAM Chapter at University of Bath, which we hope to attend.
