SIAM Career Event

We were delighted to host Matthew Wiener, Justina Ivanauskaite and Radu Popescu for a Career Event, last Monday 04/12 evening. They presented their experience working in Applied Math, Computational Science or Data Science in different industries (from pharmaceutical to supply chain management to high-performance computing…), making these career paths more concrete to Master and PhD students in those fields. The event was followed by a networking apéro. Memento link

Scimpact

We are happy to relay the announcement of the program Scimpact organized by Reatch, which may be of interest to some students at EPFL:

You want to learn how to write a good blog-article or moderate a discussion? You want to be part of a young science community that wants to make a difference? Welcome to Scimpact! Scimpact is a training program for young people who want to bring science into societal debates. The program consists of hands-on workshops and 1:1 coaching, lasts 4 or 8 months and offers you the chance to organize a public event! Apply by September 30 at www.reatch.ch/en/scimpact

Seminar

We are happy to organize the seminar A mathematical Perspective on Aerospace Engineering. The event will take place on Tuesday 7th December 2021 at 5:15 PM CET and it will be held in a hybrid format:

We are very glad to welcome:

  • Anthea Comellini from ESA (European Spatial Agency) for GMV – online

         Title: The role of a flight dynamics engineer at the European Spatial Agency

  • Adam Koskso from MTU Aero Engines – online

         Title: A complex problem for turbofans: non-linear forced response and its sensitivities for anisotropy mistuned bladed disk

  • Florian Cottier & Jules Eschbach from EPFL Space Situational Awareness (SSA) Team – in person

         Title: Orbital debris: issues and data analysis

For organizational purposes, we kindly ask you to register via the following Google Form.

Please note that a COVID certificate will be required in order to attend the seminar in person.

General Assembly

The General Assembly of the EPFL chapter of SIAM will be held on the 10 September at 1 PM in the PhD common room at the third floor of the MA building. In this occasion, we will discuss the roles within the new committee, as well as the activities for the new academic year!

Everyone is welcome to join!

Best,

The committee of the EPFL chapter of SIAM

Computational Science & Biology day

The first edition of the Computational Science & Biology day took place on May 23 and we are glad it was a success, with around 60 Bachelor, Master and PhD students joining for the talks.

We want to thank the main guests Maria Rodriguez Martinez  and Samuel Lapere for their presentations, as well as Chiara Gastaldi, Niccolò Dal Santo and Michalina Pacholska for their interesting contributions.

We thank SIAM and the Mathematics Section for their support and we hope to see you all at our next event!

Computational Science & Biology day

The EPFL Chapter of SIAM invites you to the first edition of the Computational Science & Biology day.

When: Thursday 23 May at 16:15

WhereRoom CM 1 1 – EPFL

During this event, we will have two speakers coming from industry who will present their research connected to computational science and biology. The presentations will be followed by an apéro offered by the association.

In particular, we are glad to present you Maria Rodriguez Martinez from IBM and Samuel Lapere from the Blue Brain Project.

Moreover, four PhD students from EPFL will give short presentations about their research to complement the two main speakers.

For organizational purposes, we kindly ask you to register for this event following this link. Registration is not mandatory for attending the event.

We hope to see many of you!

Entrepreneurship in Mathematics and Computational Science – 2nd Edition

The 2nd Edition of the Entrepreneurship in Mathematics and Computational Science Workshop has been a great success, with ≈100 Master and PhD students attending and great talks by our guests. Thanks to Neural Concepts, Rollomatic and L2F for their very interesting presentations!

As usual, we thank SIAM for its support and we hope to see you all at our next event!

Entrepreneurship in Mathematics and Computational Science – 2nd Edition

The EPFL Chapter of SIAM invites you to the 2nd edition of the Entrepreneurship in Mathematics and Computational Science workshop.

When: Tuesday 4th December at 17:15

Where: Room CM 1 105 – EPFL

During this event, three representatives of emerging Swiss companies will present the focus of their companies and will shed light on the role that mathematics plays in their business. The presentations will be followed by an apéro offered by the association.

This year, we are glad to present you

  • Neural Concept: Neural Concept is a 3D Deep-Learning Software platform dedicated to Computer Assisted Engineering and Design. The company’s main clients are global leaders in a wide range of application domains including aerospace and naval engineering, automotive manufacturing and the energy industry.
  • Rollomatic: Many industrial problem can be understood and simplified with the right mathematical abstraction. I will present you how we use differential geometry and Lie Groups at Rollomatic to improve the way we produce cutting tools for the industry. I will also talk about the work and the different roles of mathematicians in a research and development team.
  • Learn to Forecast (L2F): L2F is a task-force of remarkably talented mathematicians with a profound understanding of Machine Learning and Algebraic Topology. We conceive, develop and maintain custom predictive models. We believe each predictive model has a unique story, and to yield the best results it must fit your problem like a tailor-made suit.

We hope to see many of you!
