The Congress was an international event combining the AMMCS and CAIMS meetings at the same location. The AMMCS Conference Series aimed at promoting interdisciplinary research and collaboration involving mathematical, statistical and computational sciences within a larger international community. It focused on recent advances in Applied Mathematics, Modeling and Computational Science (AMMCS). The 2015 AMMCS-CAIMS Congress was organized in cooperation with AIMS and SIAM.

Conference Website
Key features of the Congress included:
  • Thematic minisymposia across the breadth of applied and industrial mathematics
  • Invited Speakers
  • Over 500 contributed mini-symposia
  • Industrial mathematics. There was a focus on application of mathematics to problems arising from industry, the economy and society
  • Poster sessions consisting of research posters presented by students, academics and industry.
  • Embedded and satellite meetings. The CAIMS, Mitacs and SIAM Annual Meetings was held concurrently with the Congress.The Association for Women in Mathematics celebrated its 40th anniversary at ICIAM 2011.
  • Public outreach sessions were organized in the forms of public lectures, interactive displays, special activities for representatives from government agencies and departments, and press activities.
  • Exhibits. Exhibitors were housed in the central gathering area to maximize exposure.
