Since 2012 the German SIAM student chapters are organizing an annual meeting. This year, from August 28-30, the first meeting took place outside of Germany, in Prague, organized by the local SIAM student chapter.

Unfortunately, lots of conferences took place at the same time, so from our student chapter, it was only myself that was able to join.

We had a very nice event with about 25 participants, interesting talks and posters and lots of social events. The welcome barbecue, a guided tour through the old town of Prague, including a visit to the Invisible Exhibition, concluded by the conference dinner. So, thanks for the great organization.

In the final assembly we had a very constructive construction on the future collaboration between the European SIAM chapters, e.g. a common workspace, where the chapters can share material they’re using for their local events.
Also, let’s not forget to mention that we chose the chapters hosting the next European meetings. In 2018, we will host the meeting here in Berlin, we are really looking forward to seeing you here next year! In 2019 the meeting is scheduled to take place in Aachen.
