From September 21-23, in Austin, Texas, 80 students and other young researchers from over 25 universities converged for a SIAM student chapter organized interdisciplinary mathematics conference. The Texas Applied Mathematics and Engineering Symposium (TAMES) featured many invited presentations on contemporary research topics including biomedical engineering, turbulence modeling, machine learning, Bayesian inverse problems, and isogeometic analysis. The three day conference was organized by UT Austin’s Student Chapter of SIAM with generous support from the Texas-Louisiana Section of SIAM and the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences. Designed to imitate the scope of a SIAM Annual Meeting — but at a local level, with a focus on young researchers — TAMES brought together nearly one hundred researchers to network and present their work in its several minisymposia. Given its success, a follow-up conference of the same type is being planned for Fall 2018 at Louisiana State University.
