Knights Conference

The Second SIAM Knights Conference, sponsored by the SIAM Student Chapter at the University of Central Florida, will be held virtually on Friday, December 4th, 2020.

The theme of the second Knights Conference is on partial differential equations and their applications in real life. The conference will feature two primary presentations delivered by

All other talks in the conference will be given by graduate and undergraduate students. Please check the previous (inaugural) Knights conference for a sample conference program. Talks by students will be 25 minutes plus additional 5 minutes for Q&A, and the topics can be on any SIAM focused area such as applied, computational and industrial mathematics.

The online conference registration (free) can be accessed via this link. The deadline for abstract submission has passed but you are still welcome to register. Below is the conference schedule and the zoom link is:
