A Successful Revival of the SIAM Washington-Baltimore Section
The 2022 SIAM Washington, D.C.-Baltimore Section Annual Meeting took place at the Virginia Tech Research Center in Arlington, Va., on November 4, 2022. This gathering marked the resurrection of the SIAM Washington-Baltimore Section, which serves members in Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware and had previously been dormant for several years. Section vice president Harbir Antil (George Mason University), Secretary Ratna Khatri (U.S. Naval Research Laboratory), and President Andrey Rukhin organized the in-person meeting, with generous support from SIAM, the Center for Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence at George Mason University, and the Interdisciplinary Center for Applied Mathematics at Virginia Tech.
The meeting was comprised of two plenary talks, a presentation and panel discussion with program officers, a poster session for students and early-career researchers, and various opportunities for networking. The meeting was a huge success. Applied mathematicians from academia, national laboratories, government agencies, and industry gathered at the day-long event. Participants praised the speaker and program officer selection and commented that the meeting was “interesting,” “very enjoyable,” “very productive,” “quite well organized,” and “valuable and helpful.”
