The International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM) is an organisation for professional applied mathematics societies and related organisations. The current (2020) President is Ya-xiang Yuan.

History

Until 1999 the Council was known as the Committee for International Conferences on Industrial and Applied Mathematics (CICIAM). Formed in 1987 with the start of the ICIAM conference series, this committee represented the leaders of four applied mathematics societies: the Gesellschaft für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik (GAMM), in Germany, the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), in England, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), in the USA, and the Société de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles (SMAI), in France. The first two presidents of the council, Roger Temam and Reinhard Mennicken, oversaw the addition of several other societies as members and associate members of the council; as of 2015 it had 21 full members and 26 associate members. Past Presidents include Olavi Nevanlinna, Ian Sloan, Rolf Jeltsch, Barbara Keyfitz, [1] and María J. Esteban.

Congress

ICIAM organizes the four-yearly International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics, the first of which was held in 1987. The most recent congress was in 2019 in Valencia (Spain), and the next will be in 2023 in Tokyo (Japan). It also sponsors several prizes, awarded at the congresses: the Lagrange Prize for exceptional career contributions, the Collatz Prize for outstanding applied mathematicians under the age of 42, the Pioneer Prize for applied mathematical work in a new field, the Maxwell Prize for originality in applied mathematics, and the Su Buchin Prize for outstanding contributions to emerging economies and human development. [2]

Collatz Prize

The Collatz Prize is awarded by ICIAM every four years at the International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics, to an applied mathematician under the age of 42. It was established in 1999 on the initiative of Gesellschaft für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik (GAMM), to recognize outstanding contributions in applied and industrial mathematics. [2]

Named after the German mathematician Lothar Collatz, it is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious prizes for young applied mathematicians.

Prize Winners

Lagrange Prize

The Lagrange Prize is awarded by ICIAM every four years at the International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics, for lifetime achievement in applied mathematics. Named after Joseph-Louis Lagrange, it was established in 1999 on the initiative of Société de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles (SMAI), Sociedad Española de Matemática Aplicada (SEMA) and Società Italiana di Matematica Applicata e Industriale (SIMAI).

Prize Winners

Maxwell Prize

The Maxwell Prize is awarded by ICIAM every four years at the International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics. Established in 1999 and named after James Clerk Maxwell, the prize provides international recognition to a mathematician who has demonstrated originality in applied mathematics. It was created on the initiative of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications with the support of the James Clerk Maxwell Foundation. [2]

Prize Winners

Pioneer Prize

The Pioneer Prize is awarded by ICIAM every four years at the International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics, for pioneering applied mathematical work in a new field. It was established in 1999 on the initiative of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).

Prize Winners

Su Buchin Prize

The Su Buchin Prize is awarded by ICIAM every four years at the International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics. Established in 2003 and named after the Chinese mathematician Su Buchin, the prize provides international recognition to outstanding contributions to applying mathematics to emerging economies and human development, including improving teaching and research. It was created on the initiative of the China Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (CSIAM), and was first awarded in 2007.

Prize Winners

Olga Taussky-Todd Lecture

An Olga Taussky-Todd Lecture has been held at each International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics since 2007. Named after Olga Taussky-Todd, the lectureship is conferred upon an outstanding woman applied mathematician.
