Scientific Program Committee

The Scientific Program Committee (SPC) is responsible for setting the program for ICIAM 2011 according to the guidelines established by the ICIAM board. It will select specific themes, invited speakers and solicit key mini-symposia, as well as choose numerous focus areas in applied, industrial and computational mathematics that are of current and future importance.

The organizers of ICIAM 2011 are saddened by the passing of Prof. Jerrold Marsden, who lost his battle with cancer on September 21, 2010. As Co-Chair of the Scientific Program Committee for ICIAM 2011 and a member of the Steering Committee, Prof. Marsden’s influence and imprint is strongly felt in the structure and scientific content of the Congress. His enthusiasm and knowledge will be deeply missed by his colleagues at ICIAM 2011. More information about Prof. Marsden can be viewed here.
