Kees Vuik

Professor at TU Delft, Director of Delft Institute for Computational Science and Engineering, Scientific Director of 4TU.AMI Applied Mathematics Institute

Kees Vuik has been professor in Numerical Analysis at Delft University of Technology since 2007. He is responsible for lectures, projects and final thesis work related to Numerical Analysis and High Performance Computing. Kees is coordinator of the double degree international Master Computer Simulations for Science and Engineering (COSSE). In his group research is done in Discretization of Partial Differential Equations, Iterative Methods and High Performance Computing. He is (co)author of about 240 publications (journals, book chapters, conference papers). Kees has obtained his MSc from Delft University of Technology. After a short stay at Philips Research Laboratories he has done a PhD at Utrecht University. During this time he worked on numerical solution, existence and uniqueness of Moving Boundary (Stefan) Problems. In 1988 he joined Delft University of Technology and became an expert on iterative solution methods combined with high performance computing. In 2021 he became an Officer in the Order of Orange Nassau. Finally, in 2022 he received the Leermeesterprijs (best professor award).

Volker Mehrmann

Professor at Technische Universität Berlin

Volker Mehrmann received his Diploma in mathematics in 1979, his Ph.D. in 1982, and his habilitation in 1987 from the University of Bielefeld, Germany. He spent research years at Kent State University in 1979-1980, at the University of Wisconsin in 1984-1985, and at IBM Research Center in Heidelberg in 1988--1989. After spending the years 1990-1992 as a visiting full professor at the RWTH Aachen, he was a full professor at TU Chemnitz from 1993 to 2000. He was full professor for Mathematics at TU Berlin until his retirement in October 2023. He is a member of acatech (the German academy of engineering), academia europaea and the European Academy of Scienes, he was president of GAMM the (International association of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics), and until the end of 2022 president of the European Mathematical Society (EMS). He was chair of MATHEON, the Research Center `Mathematics for key technologies´ and the Einstein Center ECMath in Berlin. Volker Mehrmann is SIAM and AMS Fellow, has held an ERC Advanced Grant and also was member of the ERC Mathematics Panel. He is editor of several journals in numerical analysis and editor-in-chief of Linear Algebra and its Applications. His research interests are in the areas of numerical mathematics/scientific computing, applied and numerical linear algebra, control theory, the theory and numerical solution of differential-algebraic equations, and in energy based mathematical modeling.

Vivi Rottschäfer

Associate Professor at Leiden University and Professor by special appointment ”Industrial Mathematics”Korteweg-de Vries Instituut, University of Amsterdam

Organisation in 2007. With this Vivi was appointed Associate Professor in the Analysis and Dynamical Systems group of the Mathematical Institute of Leiden University. In 2021, she was appointed Professor by special appointment ”Industrial Mathematics” at the Korteweg-de Vries Instituut of the University of Amsterdam. She is a specialist in dynamical systems theory and partial differential equations with a focus on applications. She has joint projects with researchers in pharmacology on drug distribution, delivery and effect, and with environmental scientists. Vivi is the chair of the board of Math4NL. Math4NL aims to strengthen the interaction between mathematicians and society. To accomplish this Math4NL facilitates collaboration between mathematicians and industry. As part of this, Vivi is chair of the National Committee 'Study Group Mathematics with Industry' which coordinates the organisation of the Dutch 'Study Group Mathematics with Industry'.

Véronique Mame-Deschamps

Véronique Maume-Deschamps is professor at Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, in France. She is a mathematician specializing in statistical inference and statistical learning for dependence structures, including vectorial, spatial, and spatio-temporal dependencies. Additionally, she works on uncertainty quantification and has an interest in causal inference, with applications to insurance and the environment. From 2018 to 2022, she was Director of AMIES, the French national agency for mathematics in interactions with companies and society, which fosters relationships between French mathematicians and companies. Véronique Maume-Deschamps was involved in developping collaborations between AMIES and Eu-Maths-In (the European network for industrial mathematics) and continues as a member of the board of the Opendesk of Eu-Maths-In. Since January 1st, 2023, she is been Director of the Camille Jordan Institute, a mathematical research center located in the Lyon metropolitan area.
