Leadership Changes in ICIAM Member Societies: April 2021

ICIAM Dianoia has received these notices from member societies. They are listed in alphabetical order by acronym.



The members of Japan SIAM have elected Dr. Hiroshi Akiba as its president. At the general assembly of JSIAM that is scheduled to be held on June 18th, he will become the new President of JSIAM, replacing the current president Prof Hisashi Okamoto. JSIAM has kept the tradition that the presidents are elected alternately from academia and from industry. Dr Akiba represents a president from industry; he has long been in an engineering company that develops a CAE code and other applications.
