We are happy to announce that we founded a SIAM Student Chapter in Potsdam in February 2021. See here for general information about SIAM student chapters.
The Student Chapter is an association of students at the University of Potsdam.
What are the benefits of being organised as a SIAM Student Chapter?
Who can become a member?
How to become a member?
If you have any questions feel free to ask the PhD representatives Undine and Florian. The faculty advisor of this Chapter is Prof. Dr. Melina Freitag.
As a joint initiative of our SIAM Chapter and the SIAM Chapters of Aachen, Heidelberg and Magdeburg, we would like to invite you to SIAM Slam. There, different participants will present their theses or other scientific findings in a very short amount of time. The audience will choose the most entertaining and informative presentation.
The event will take place via zoom on the 10th of June at 18:00. Feel free to ask Florian for the login data.
Each participant will have exactly 3 minutes for their presentation. A slideshow is allowed, however, we advise reducing the number of slides. There will be a prize for the best presentation.
If you just want to be a spectator, you are welcome to join as well. Then, no registration is needed. In the second part of the event, we will run a short quiz based on the presentations. Here, the winner will also get a small prize. We plan to close the event with an opportunity to together play games online.
If you always wanted to try your hand at being a science communicator, this is your time. Who knows, maybe you are the next Richard Feynman or Stephen Hawking? :)
