Elevator Pitch Video Competition - describing how their work in mathematics is important and relevant to our everyday lives
BMSA Elevating Mathematics Video Competition is Live!
The mathematical sciences are part of everyday life. Modern communication, transportation, science, engineering, technology, medicine, manufacturing, security, finance, and many other disciplines depend on the mathematical sciences, even if we don’t always realize it. It is important for mathematical researchers to convey the importance of their work to diverse audiences. This often comes down to being able to quickly and simply describe what you are doing and why.
With that in mind, the BMSA invites early career professionals and students who use mathematics in their work to submit short video “elevator speeches” describing how their work in mathematics is important and relevant to our everyday lives. This can be an unedited selfie video, an animation, or any other format. The BMSA simply wants to learn about why your work is important in 1-2 minutes.
The winning video will be announced and played during the 2019 SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering (CSE19) in Spokane, Washington. The winning participant will receive $1000 and be featured on the BMSA website. You do not need to attend the conference or be a SIAM member to participate.
