Symposium of SIAM Student Chapters 2015 in Trier
In the end of August 2015 the SIAM Student Chapter Trier hosted the 4th Symposium of German SIAM Student Chapters.
SIAM Student Chapters in Heidelberg, Magdeburg, Aachen, Berlin and even Prague - besides our own chapter in Hamburg - sent representatives. Guests from Chemnitz and Kaiserslautern also joined for lively discussions about different topics in applied mathematics like for example modelling of flight behaviour of bats, optimization of cutting gemstones or finding the best location for a new highway. The scientific program was complemented by a guided city tour on Thursday, which could only cover small parts of the total set of historic buildings in Trier and a social program that offered lots of space for exchange and inspiring discussions about SIAM related topics.
We want to thank the organizers again for this great workshop and are looking forward to the next Symposium in 2016.
