Great Sources of Information Provided by SIAM

SIAM Connect –

What’s going on in the applied math and computational science communities? What conferences and meetings are approaching? Are there any new and interesting workshops on the horizon? What sorts of funding sources and fellowships are available? Any recent developments in science policy and planning?

If you are interested in the answers to these and other similar types of questions, SIAM Connect is for you. As SIAM’s online news and announcements page, SIAM Connect provides regular updates on various opportunities in the fields of applied mathematics and computational science. From election announcements and SIAG activity updates to SIAM Nuggets and videos that showcase exciting new research from SIAM journals and meetings, SIAM Connect is an inclusive platform for news and information.

Have you checked it out yet? Look for the SIAM Connect button on the left-hand navigation bar on any page of the SIAM website or visit the link above.


SIAM provides a platform for discussion about cutting-edge applied math and computational science research and facilitates conversation about various issues and topics of relevance to the mathematical sciences community through its meetings, publications, activity groups, workshops and other events. In order to facilitate the same types of open-ended conversations online, SIAM Blogs was launched late last year. By creating a hub for news and development in the field, we hope to inform mathematical scientists, researchers, and educators, as well as instruct and influence key decision makers, policy administrators, and the general public.

All of this will only be possible with your contributions—in the form of blog posts, comments and feedback, and content sharing to expand the scope of content. You can make SIAM Blogs an exciting spot for discourse. Head on over to the link above!

Your thoughts and contributions are welcome at Blog submissions will be reviewed prior to posting.


SIAM digitally captures and archives a lot of the exciting applied math and computational science research presented at SIAM conferences. What started with audio and slide captures from our 2008 Annual Meeting now includes lectures from more than 20 conferences, including select minisymposia and minitutorials from the 2013 Annual Meeting and six 2013 SIAG meetings, with five meetings to be added in 2014. Comprising over 1,500 presentations, the collection is organized into 28 categories, including algebraic geometry, atmospheric and oceanographic science, computational science, data mining, geophysical science, optimization, uncertainty quantification, and more. Also included are video clips of speaker interviews and topic overviews from sessions at the 2010, 2012, and 2013 SIAM Annual Meetings as well as ICIAM 2011 and CSE13.
