This second annual conference was organised by the NUI Galway Student Chapter of SIAM, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. The aim of the conference was to bring together research students from different universities, giving them the chance to broaden their horizons and see what other students in their research area are working on. The event was generously supported by SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics), MACSI (Mathematics Applications Consortium for Science and Industry) at the University of Limerick, the Stokes Cluster of the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics at NUI Galway, the Complex Systems Research Centre, and the NUI Galway Mathematics Society. The webpage for the 2014 Conference can be viewed here.

The Chapter extends sincere thanks to our speakers and all who attended. Congratulations to Gary O'Keeffe of MACSI, University of Limerick, who won the prize for best student speaker!
