SIAM Minisymposium

Invited Addresses

The SIAM Invited Address will be delivered by Mason Porter, University of California, Los Angeles, Bounded-confidence models of opinion dynamics on networks, Thursday, at 11:10 am.

Mariel Vazquez was originally scheduled to deliver the 2023 SIAM Invited Address but unavoidable circumstances have forced her to postpone her talk.

See MAA-SIAM-AMS Hrabowski-Gates-Tapia-McBay Lecture below.

MAA-AMS-SIAM Gerald and Judith Porter Public Lecture will be given by Bernd Sturmfels, University of California, The quadratic formula revisited; Saturday at 3:00 pm.

Panels and Sessions

SIAM Panel on a BIG world view: Business-Industry-Government Careers for Mathematicians, organized by Nessy Tania, Pfizer; Thursday, 8:00–9:30 am. The rapidly changing nature of research and development in industry is opening up many new opportunities for mathematicians. Come get an insider’s view and see what might await you outside the academic environment. This discussion will feature panelists from a variety of industries who will share their “real-world” applied mathematical experiences, offer tips for getting in and building a satisfying BIG career as well as address questions from the audience. This session is sponsored and organized by the SIAM Industry Committee. Panelists will include: Judy Day, Applied Biomath; Chujun He, Analysis Group; Cosmin Ionita, MathWorks; Derek Kane, DEKA Research and Development; Michael L. Parks, Sandia National Laboratories, and Lalitha Venkataramanan, Schlumberger.

MAA-SIAM-AMS Hrabowski-Gates-Tapia-McBay Session, organized jointly by the Mathematical Association of America, Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, and the American Mathematical Society; Friday, 9:00–10:30 am. This year the session will consist of a lecture from 9:00–9:50 am, given by Omayra Ortega, Sonoma State University, Who are we serving with our scholarship: A Covid Model Case Study, and a short panel discussion on Re-envisioning Justice in Mathematics Research, from 9:50–10:30 am. Panelists will include: Omayra Ortega, Sonoma State University, Ron Buckmire, Occidental College, and Jakini Kauba, Clemson University.

Joint Committee on Women Panel Discussion, organized by Jennifer Schultens, University of California, Davis; Thursday, 1:00 – 2:30 pm. For 50 years, the Joint Committee on Women has served as a forum for communication among member organizations to enhance opportunities for women in the mathematical sciences. As an umbrella organization with representatives from the American Mathematical Association of Two Year Colleges (AMATYC), American Mathematical Society (AMS), American Statistical Association (ASA), Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM), Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS), Mathematical Association of America (MAA), National Association of Mathematics (NAM), National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), and Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), the JCW maintains a website to highlight policies and practices of member organizations. This panel will examine metacognition, the ways in which we approach mathematics and how this facilitates or impedes understanding. Confirmed panelists are Lakeshia Jones, University of Arkansas-Little Rock, Jo Boaler, Stanford University, Yvonne Lai, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and John Nardo, Oglethorpe University. Jennifer Schultens, University of California, Davis, will be moderating.
