General Information


Standard Audio-visual Set-up in Meeting Rooms

SIAM does not provide computers for any speaker.  When giving an electronic presentation, speakers must provide their own computers.  SIAM is not responsible for the safety and security of speakers’ computers.

Each meeting room is equipped with a ceiling-mounted projector for use with a laptop, document camera and a white board.  Cables or adaptors for Apple computers are not supplied, as they vary for each model. Please bring your own cable/adaptor if using a Mac computer.  

A graduate student with working knowledge of the Audio-visual equipment will be stationed in each room during all sessions.

Attendees will be given access to the CSU wireless network upon check-in at no charge. There will not be a computer lab available.

Membership

Leading the applied mathematics community . . .
Join SIAM and save!

SIAM members save up to $65 on full registration for the the SIAM Conference on Applied Algebraic Geometry (AG13)!! Join your peers in supporting the premier professional society for applied mathematicians and computational scientists. SIAM members receive subscriptions to SIAM Review and SIAM News and enjoy substantial discounts on SIAM books, journal subscriptions, and conference registrations. 

If you are not a SIAM member and do not join SIAM before you register for the conference, you can pay the Non-Member or Non-MemberMini Speaker/Organizer rate and still apply the difference between what you paid for the conference and what a member would have paid ($65 for a Non-Member and $35 for a Non-Member Mini Speaker/Organizer) towards a SIAM membership. After you register for the conference, contact SIAM Customer Service for details about membership or join at the registration desk at the conference.

If you are a SIAM member, it only costs $10 to join the SIAM Activity Group on Applied Algebraic Geometry. As a SIAG/AG member, you are eligible for an additional $10 discount on this conference. As the total price of membership plus conference registration is the same, you might want to consider joining the activity group

Free Student Memberships are available to all students who attend an institution that is an Academic Member of SIAM, are members of Student Chapters of SIAM, or are nominated by a Regular Member of SIAM.
