Barmak Serves on Organizing Committee for SIAM Conference on Mathematical Aspects of Materials Science

May 19 2021

Katayun Barmak, the Philips Electronics Professor of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics and Materials Science and Engineering, served on the Organizing Committee of Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Conference on Mathematical Aspects of Materials Science MS21. The conference was to have taken place in Bilbao, Spain, in spring of 2020, but was cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, the conference took place fully online from May 17-28, 2021. Barmak was also a co-organizer, together with Yekaterina Epshteyn of the Department of Mathematics, University of Utah, of the mini-symposium “MS03 – Polycrystalline Microstructures: Recent Advances and New Trends”.

As the conference website notes: “Since 1994, every 2 to 4 years the SIAM Materials Activity Group organizes the SIAM Conference on Mathematical Aspects of Materials Science. This conference focuses on interdisciplinary approaches that bridge mathematical and computational methods to the science and engineering of materials. The conference provides a forum to highlight significant advances as well as critical or promising challenges in mathematics and materials science and engineering. In keeping with tradition, the conference seeks diversity in people, disciplines, methods, theory, and applications.”
