I’ll be attending the SIAM CS&E meeting in Boston next week. This will be the first time I’ve attended this now biennial meeting, which has been running since 2000. The meeting is run by the SIAM Activity Group on Computational Science and Engineering, which is far and away SIAM’s largest activity group, with over 2000 members. The Boston conference is shaping up to be SIAM’s largest ever meeting (apart from ICIAM) with well over 1000 attendees.
The program, spread over five full days, shows the vitality of the field. I’ll be speaking on the first morning in the minisymposium Numerical Accuracy and Reliability Issues in High Performance Computing organized by Marc Baboulin and Ilse Ipsen. Unfortunately there are at least two other minisymposia that I’d like to attend at the same time!
If you are not able to attend you can get a feel for what’s going on by following the hashtag #SIAMCSE13 on Twitter. Also watch out for some live blogging of minisymposia from Paul Constantine and David Gleich; I may even have a go at this myself.
