This year the fourth annual Irish SIAM Student Chapter Conference is being organised by the NUI Galway Student Chapter of SIAM, the provisional schedule for the event can be found here. Last year the event was hosted by the University of Limerick Chapter, currently the only other SIAM Student Chapter in the Republic of Ireland. The conference brings 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 conference aims to build relationships and foster collaboration amongst early career researchers in the areas of industrial and applied mathematics in Ireland and further afield. The event is generously supported by SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics), the Stokes Cluster of the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics at NUI Galway, and the NUI Galway Mathematics Society. The webpage for last year's conference can be viewed here.

We are pleased to announce that Dr Nicole Beisiegel, University College Dublin, and Dr Catherine Enright, Algorithm Research Engineer, Valeo Vision Systems, will be this year's plenary speakers.
