The Edinburgh SIAM Student Chapter Annual Conference 2016

Edinburgh SIAM Student chapter successfully held the 7th Annual Conference for Heriot-Watt and University of Edinburgh students and researchers on 7th of April at University of Edinburgh.

This year the Conference hosted 4 invited speakers: Dr. Ralf Banisch (University of Edinburgh), Dr. Florian Doster (Heriot-Watt University), Dr. Michael Watson (Heriot-Watt University), Dr. Anke Wiese (Heriot-Watt University). Ralf Banisch gave an excellent talk about Complex Networks explaining it on the example of Game of Thrones characters relations. He was followed by Florian Doster who introduced Multi Scale  Multi-Physics Modelling of Multi-Phase Flow. He joked himself that they are competing among the colleagues who is going to have more “multi” in their research. After the lunch break Michael Watson shared his research about Hybrid Model of Pattern Prediction in the Developing Retinal Vasculature. He also shared what difficulties his research group faced developing this research. And, finally, we got a chance to listen Anke Wiese and her talk about Algebraic Structure of Stochastic Expansions. All the talks stimulated and inspired multiple discussions among the audience over the breaks.
