President's July Letter

Letter from the President:

     Thanks to the help from IMA and Iain Duff, the preparations for the 2022 ICIAM Workshop and Board meeting  are  going smoothly. The Workshop on Applied and Industrial Mathematics will be held at the  University of Strathclyde in Glasgow Sept 1-2, 2022, before the board meeting which will be held on Sept 3rd, 2022. (

   ICIAM's application to be a full member of the International Science Council (ISC) was approved by the  Governing Board of ISC. Being a full member of ISC, it is expected that ICIAM will play an more important role in the ISC, and that ICIAM's activities can be amplified and promoted through the platform of ISC.

   The 2023 ICIAM Olga-Taussky-Todd (OTT) lecture was announced by the ICIAM OTT Lecture Committee chaired by Professor Lisa Fauci of Tulane University, USA. Professor Ilse C.F. Ipsen of North Carolina State University, USA, will deliver the Olga Taussky-Todd Lecture at the International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics, Aug 20-25, 2023, in Tokyo, Japan. (
