SIAM Student Chapter Industry Series: Dr. Rachel Clipp, R&D Staff, Kitware Inc

Kitware develops and supports modeling and simulation platforms that power medical training, planning, and predictive applications for improved patient treatment and outcomes. Our capabilities include whole-body computational physiology models for faster than real-time simulation, surgical planning, and guidance applications, high-fidelity computational fluid dynamics for patient-specific treatment planning, and virtual/augmented reality solutions for immersive training, and patient-specific image-to-model and mode-to-simulation workflows. Our innovative applications are needs driven for academic, clinical, and commercial settings for improved patient care. Kitware’s open source approach encourages community involvement and adoption of our state of the art technologies.

Mathematics in Industry Seminar

At 4 PM on October 17 the NCSU SIAM student chapter will be holding a Mathematics in Industry  seminar in SAS 2102. Steven Hamilton from Oak Ridge National Laboratory will be discussing the DOE Exascale Computing Project. Here is his abstract:


The DOE Exascale Computing Project (ECP), a collaborative effort between the DOE Office of Science and the National Nuclear Security Administration, is aimed at accelerating the development of both hardware and software for the next generation of supercomputers, which will be capable of computational performance in excess of one exaflops (10^18 floating point operations per second).  ECP is divided into three main research focus areas: applications development, software technology, and hardware technology.  In this talk, we will briefly discuss each of the focus areas and describe a number of locations where mathematicians and computational scientists are heavily contributing.  Particular focus will be placed on highlighting ECP subprojects in which Oak Ridge National Laboratory plays a significant leadership role, including modeling and simulation for nuclear reactors, materials science, and fusion energy.

Introduction to SIAM Seminar

On Tuesday, September 11, 2018 there will be an introduction to SIAM seminar in Daniels Hall 341 at 3:50 PM. An overview of the benefits and activities of SIAM will be provided. Coffee and cookies will be provided.

Faculty Lecture Series this Spring

The SIAM student chapter will be continuing our faculty lecture series this spring with three great talks. The schedule is given below.

Arvind Saibaba, Wednesday February 8 at 4:30 PM

Tim Kelley, Wednesday March 15 at 4:30 PM

Mansoor Haider, Wednesday April 19 at 4:30 PM

This lecture series in intended to provide entry level talks introducing grad student to useful tools that we may not see within our coursework. This is a great opportunity to broaden your math toolkit and interact with faculty in a small classroom setting. More detailed announcements will come as we approach the time of each talk.

A Mathematicians Guide to Working with Engineers

The SIAM student chapter is hosting our final meeting for the fall semester next Tuesday, Dec. 6, at 11:30 in SAS 4201. We welcome Steven Hamilton from Oak Ridge National Laboratory who will be talking about collaborations between mathematicians and engineers. His title and abstract are below. Pizza will be served.
