New SIAM Activity Group on Applied and Computational Discrete Algorithms 

SIAM is happy to announce the new SIAM Activity Group on Applied and Computational Discrete Algorithms. This activity group fosters research on the computational solution of combinatorial problems in areas including combinatorial scientific computing, algorithmic computer science, algorithm engineering, algorithmic differentiation, combinatorial optimization, and emerging applications. Drawing from academia, national research labs, and industry, the activity group will bring together mathematicians, computer scientists, statisticians, scientists, and engineers to promote research in applied and computational combinatorics. Learn more.

Watch Livestream of Invited & Prize Lectures at CSE19

Several distinguished applied mathematicians will give invited talks and prize lectures at the upcoming 2019 SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering (CSE19). For the first time, each of these 12 lectures will be streamed live from the conference and available to watch on the CSE19 homepage for those who will not be at the meeting! Learn more.

Publishing News & Notes
SIMODS Starts Publishing
We are excited to announce the launch of our latest journal, SIAM Journal on Mathematics of Data Science (SIMODS), which begins publishing February 12! The journal advances mathematical, statistical, and computational methods in the context of data and information sciences. We have seen a high volume of submissions, demonstrating the immense interest in this area of research and confirming SIMODS will be of great use to the community. Of those many submissions, tomorrow we will bring you 10 excellent papers along with an introduction to the journal, authored by Editor-in-Chief Tamara G. Kolda. Articles are available for free during the initial promotion through 2019. Don’t wait! Learn more and sign up for SIMODS email alerts

Math in Our Lives Series: SIAM Journal on Imaging Sciences

How can math affect ultrasound technology, the sharpness of photographs, or the restoration of paintings? These are topics of recent SIAM journal articles, and addressed in our NEW video series - Math in our Lives! We'll be releasing one video each month through July 2019; watch this video to learn how math relates to our ability to precisely read important images like photographs, video, radar, and medical imaging. Watch the video.
