5th International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics, ICIAM 2003
Held every four years, the International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics is billed as the leading event in its field, worldwide. With more than 1700 delegates from 60 countries, approximately 1700 presentations, 34 keynote speakers, three special days and five embedded meetings, ICIAM 2003 lived up to its billing.
The subject material for the Congress covered the full spectrum of industrial and applied mathematics. This ranged from presentation on theoretical topics without a practical application in mind through to talks on the application of mathematics in specific industry sectors. Presentations were made in four categories: keynote lectures (by invitation), minisymposia, contributed talks and posters.
ICIAM 2003 featured five embedded meetings:
Of these, CTAC and EMAC had approximately 100 and 50 presentations respectively, and the Proceedings will be published. Topics of relevance to engineering and minerals engineering were included in these. For further details, see the “Embedded Meetings” link at www.iciam.org.
The Special Days at ICIAM 2003 were
As mentioned earlier, ICIAM 2003 had approximately 1700 presentations and the program was extremely wide-ranging and comprehensive. Presentations were classified into 22 broad themes, of which the following might be of interest to readers of this report:
10. Fluid Mechanics
In all, the abstracts for these classifications occupied approximately 65 pages in the Book of Abstracts, probably about 250 presentations in all. In addition, some of the approximately 250 presentations in the following areas
In summary, ICIAM 2003 was a major scientific meeting, which gave a snapshot of the current state of applied mathematics and its industrial applications. In such a broad program, there were many individual presentations that were concerned with applications in minerals engineering.
