CAIMS Arthur-Beaumont Distinguished Service Award: Sharene Bungay

CAIMS is pleased to announce that the recipient of the CAIMS Arthur Beaumont Distinguished Service Award for 2016 is Professor Sharene Bungay from the Department of Computer Science at Memorial University of Newfoundland, for her outstanding service to CAIMS as a Board Member from July 2009 to June 2011, CAIMS Secretary from July 2011 to June 2015 and Co-Chair of the CAIMS Annual Meeting in St. John’s, Newfoundland, in 2010.

Item 2

CAIMS-Fields Industrial Mathematics Prize: Huaxiong Huang

The Fields Institute is pleased to announce in conjunction with the Canadian Applied and Industrial Mathematics Society (CAIMS) that Professor Huaxiong Huang from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at York University is the 2016 winner of the CAIMS-Fields Industrial Mathematics Prize.

Huang was the inaugural Industrial Coordinator at the Pacific Institute of Mathematical Sciences, he played a critical role in the early years of the Industrial Problem-Solving Workshops, and he was also involved in the Graduate Industrial Mathematical Modelling Camps.

Professor Huang has an impressive research record, with over 75 journal publications that involve a surprisingly broad cross-section of applied mathematics including partial differential equations, asymptotics, fluid mechanics, probability, stochastic processes, and scientific computing. His work impacts a broad sphere of influence to the study of applications ranging from industrial sectors such as banking, insurance, biomedicine, energy, and material science.
