Congratulations NAG Prize 2010 Winners!

Last week some of my colleagues attended the first Manchester SIAM Student Chapter conference at the University of Manchester. Going by the feedback it was a really good day with some great presentations by Professor Sven Hammarling (NAG), Professor Bill Lionheart and Dr Oliver Dorn (both of the School of Mathematics, University of Manchester) as well as many student presentations - so well done to those who organised the event.
