The biennial Scientific Computing and Differential Equations conference, known as SciCADE, took place at the University of Bath on the week September 11-15 (2017), featuring seven plenary talks and forty-two mini-symposia. As part of the meeting, SIAM UKIE sponsored the conference poster session with prizes for the best poster, alongside Cambridge University Press, who provided the wine in generous quantities. Jack Betteridge was awarded second prize and Ibrahim Almuslimani awarded first prize.
Jack Betteridge is a PhD student at the University of Bath, coming to the end of his first year of research. He works with Dr Eike Müller and Prof Ivan Graham on finding numerical solutions to PDEs using higher-order discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods. The poster summarised his first six months of research on an advection problem, including the implementation (C++ code as part of the DUNE framework) of the DG method, the structure of the discrete operators and the scalability of the problem to high-performance computing architectures.

Ibrahim Almuslimani is a PhD student and doctoral assistant at University of Geneva, Section of Mathematics, working with Prof Gilles Vilmart. He obtained his masters in mathematics in 2016 from Lebanese University. His current research interests focus on multiscale numerical integrators for stochastic and partial differential equations. His poster proposes a novel optimal explicit stabilized method for stiff stochastic problems that mix slow and fast scales. Applications include molecular dynamics simulations and stochastic diffusion problems. You can see the poster here.

The next round of SciCADE will take place in Innsbruck in 2019.
