Zemlyanova named vice president of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics Central
Anna Zemlyanova, assistant professor of mathematics, is the newly appointed vice president of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics Central States Section.
The society was formed in 1951 and has more than 13,000 members. The Central State Section serves the society's members in Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma. The section's purpose is to enhance communication among members, promote collaboration for both basic research and applications of mathematics to industry and science, represent applied and computational mathematics in the region, and support the society's mission in the central region of the U.S.
One of the Central Section's main activities is to organize an annual meeting. Meetings took place at Missouri University of Science and Technology in 2015 and the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 2016. The location for the upcoming 2017 meeting is Colorado State University. Kansas State University is slotted to host the seventh annual meeting in 2021.
The section's other activities include encouraging new Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics student chapters and facilitating collaboration among all student chapters in the central region. Participation in Central States Section activities is open to all institutions and industries in the region with an interest in applied and computational mathematics.
