# Society For Industrial and Applied Mathematics

- The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is an international community of over 13,000 individual members. SIAM fosters the development of applied mathematical and computational methodologies needed in solving many real-world problems. Through publications, research, and community, the mission of SIAM is to build cooperation between mathematics and the worlds of science and technology.

A SIAM student chapter resides at one or more colleges or universities, and ideally involves students and faculty members from different departments. The purpose of a chapter is to generate interest in applied mathematics and computational science by providing students opportunities.

SIAM encourages participation by students from many departments on campus. Chapters include students from departments including math, applied math, mathematical sciences, statistics, computer science, engineering, economics, physics, and other sciences. The activities of student chapters can include lunch discussions about career opportunities in applied math and computational science, lectures given by guest speakers, team projects such as undergraduate competitions, social functions, and field trips to industrial laboratories or SIAM section meetings.
