SIAM Student Chapter at Old Dominion University

SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics: www.siam.org) is an international organization which hosts publications and conferences in a wide range of fields.  It's goal is to promote interactions between mathematics and other scientific and technological communities.  

As a student chapter, we aim to:

  • to provide a forum for the discussion of applied mathematics research at ODU,
  • to promote interactions between undergraduate, graduate students, and researchers in applied mathematics
  • to make ODU students aware of prizes, conferences,and other opportunities offered by SIAM.
The Bylaw of the Chapter describes in more details the purpose and the activities of our Student Chapter of SIAM.

Current Events

Currently, we hold our monthly meetings in conjunction with Math Stat Club Math/Stat club.

We will be holding our 6th Annual Mathematics Awareness Conference on Saturday, April 13th, 2013. The Conference will take place on ODU's Norfolk Campus, from 10 am to 5 pm. Those who attend will have the opportunity to interact with our guest speakers. Our keynote speaker for the day will be Dr. Eric de Sturler, Professor of Mathematics, from Virginia Tech. The conference will also be comprised of many small presentations that will be given students and scientists doing research in mathematics, statistics, and the various applications thereof.

What are you working on? Interested in talking about it? The Conference provides a great opportunity for students to both speak about their research and learn about the work being done by their peers. If you'd be willing to give a talk about your research and the math behind it, or would just like to attend the conference, please contact us.
Here is a link to the Conference Registration Form (in MS Word format). Here is a Conference flyer (in PDF format).
