The SIAM UKIE election results are in. Of the 283 eligible voters, 122 people voted, which is a good turnout. Many thanks to those who have voted!
Congratulations go to Prof. Ivan Graham (University of Bath) and Dr John MacKenzie (University of Strathclyde) on being elected as the new President and Vice President of our SIAM UKIE section. Ivan and John will serve in their roles for a period of two years until the end of March 2019. We are all looking forward to working together.
Prof. Des Higham and Prof. Jennifer Scott’s terms end with this election and we are grateful for their hard work and contributions to the section. During their terms the section has been extremely active, with a large number of events being organised by our Student Chapters, including the National SC Conferences in Reading (2015), Cardiff (2016), and Galway (2017), as well as two excellent annual meetings being held in Cambridge (2016) and Strathclyde (2017). Both Des and Jennifer have kindly agreed to assist the new presidents with the transition and we hope that the section will continue to benefit from their contributions, formally or informally, in future years.
