Among the activities of AIMe is providing the means for former trainees to keep in touch with each other. As a member of AIMe you probably noticed that recently there haven't been many activities. However, a magazine is still published regularly to keep our members informed of current activities in the MfI program. Furthermore a symposium is organised occasionally.
In June 2004, AIMe published their annual magazine. The theme of the magazine was 'Faces', which you will notice in the articles. This magazine contained articles about final projects, interviews with problem owners, information about the new trainees, and much more. Here you can find the table of contents with links to some of the articles. If you are interested in another article, or in receiving a paper copy of the magazine, please contact us so that we can send you what you asked for. Articles from older magazines are also available.
Also in June 2004, AIMe organised a mini symposium within the ECMI conference. This mini syposium had the title How to Train Industrial Mathematicians. The goal was to collect viewpoints from people in science, industry and other training programs on the following subjects:
- How can one select and educate graduates to become industrial mathematicians?
- What is the appropriate ratio between gaining knowledge and gaining skills at training programs with aforementioned objectives?
The symposium was organised by Tanya Barysenka, Corné Botha, Catherine Vladislavleva and Bertil van Zweeden. They invited several speakers to speak on these subjects, and organised a plenary discussion to hear the different views of the audience.
