Today, the SIAM Student Chapter Aachen again hosts the Industry Meets Mathematics event. We are excited to welcome Dr. Kärcher from NavVis (https://www.navvis.com/) and Dr. Droste from INFORM (https://www.inform-software.com/) as our guests.

Dr. Kärcher will talk about “Indoor visual positioning and navigation at NavVis”. In his presentation, he will give insights into how to calculate the position of a user taking pictures of his surroundings – a necessity for indoor navigation.

Our guest from INFORM, Dr. Droste, presents “Optimizing Real-World Problems”. This talk is about modeling production planning as a mixed integer program in order to plan production jobs on interdependent capacitated machines while minimizing backlog, holding, as well as setup costs and how to solve those problems despite millions of variables and constraints.

SIAM SC BBQ, Elections, and the Award of the Certificate of Recognition

August 16th, 2018 | by

On Thursday, 19th July 2018, we held a BBQ on the lawn behind the
Rogowski building to mark the start of a new year in the SIAM Student Chapter.
The weather had been great, especially for Aachen standards, and the grill
worked overtime. We hereby like to thank the people from AIA for kindly lending
us the grill and the beer table set.

During the BBQ (as well as a view days in advance), the officers for the
upcoming year 2018/2019 could be elected online. The election resulted in the
following officers:

  • President: Christian Bauer (NLD)
  • Vice-President: Anna Thünen (IGPM)
  • Secretary: Jannick Wolters (MathCCES)
  • Treasurer: Nicole Nellesen (AICES)

In the name of the elected officers I’d like to thank the voters for
participating in this years election process and for the trust you have placed
in us.

The BBQ was topped with the award of the certificate of recognition to Roland
Siegbert. He had been one of the founders and the first president of the RWTH SIAM
Student Chapter. With this certificate we would like to thank him for his
engagement. For without him and the first generation of officers, we
wouldn’t be here today.

We would like to thank everybody for their active participation in the past,
and look forward to the new year with the newly-elected officers.

Here are some impressions of the event:
