SIAM Elects New Officers

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) elected new officers. Cleve Moler, author of the original version of MATLAB and co-founder of The MathWorks, Inc., was elected to replace current president Martin Golubitsky of the University of Houston. He will serve as President-Elect for one year beginning in January 2006, and then become President in January 2007. Moler's work has had enormous impact on applied and computational science through such software packages as MATLAB, LINPACK, and EISPACK. In 1997, he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering “for conceiving and developing widely used mathematical software.” He has served on the SIAM Council, as SIAM Vice President at Large, on the SIAM Board of Trustees, and on numerous SIAM committees.

Chan, Iain S. Duff, and Nicholas John Higham. Ian Duff was then elected Chair of the SIAM Board of Trustees. See http://www.siam.org/about/news-siam.php for more information.
