The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), headquartered in Philadelphia, PA, is an international community of over 11,000 individual members. These include applied and computational mathematicians and computer scientists, as well as other scientists and engineers. Members are researchers, educators, students, and practitioners from 85 countries working in industry, government, laboratories, and academia. The Society, which also includes almost 500 institutional members worldwide, represents academia, manufacturing, research and development, service and consulting organizations, the government, and the military.
SIAM fosters the development of applied mathematical and computational methodologies needed in various application areas. Applied mathematics in partnership with computational science is essential in solving many real-world problems. SIAM serves and advances these disciplines by publishing a variety of books and prestigious peer-reviewed research journals, by conducting conferences, and by hosting activity groups in various areas of mathematics. SIAM provides many opportunities for students, including regional sections and student chapters.
SIAM was incorporated in 1952 as a non-profit organization. SIAM’s goals have remained the same:
- To advance the application of mathematics and computational science to engineering, industry, science, and society;
- To promote research that will lead to effective new mathematical and computational methods and techniques for science, engineering, industry, and society;
- To provide media for the exchange of information and ideas among mathematicians, engineers, and scientists.
