Former IMA President Robert MacKay (University of Warwick) was one of the featured speakers at the SIAM meeting, along with SIAM President Irene Fonseca (Carnegie Mellon University), Nick Gould (Rutherford Appleton Lab), Stephen Hendry (Oasys Software Ltd.), Niall Madden (National University of Ireland, Galway), and Alain Goriely (University of Oxford).
