Statement on Inclusiveness

As a professional society, SIAM is committed to providing an inclusive climate that encourages the open expression and exchange of ideas, that is free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation, and that is welcoming and comfortable to all members and to those who participate in its activities. In pursuit of that commitment, SIAM is dedicated to the philosophy of equality of opportunity and treatment for all participants regardless of gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion or religious belief, age, marital status, disabilities, veteran status, field of expertise, or any other reason not related to scientific merit. This philosophy extends from SIAM conferences, to its publications, and to its governing structures and bodies. We expect all members of SIAM and participants in SIAM activities to work towards this commitment.


Mobile App
A mobile app for the 2016 SIAM Annual Meeting is available for download. Plug into your browser. The link will automatically detect the type of device and take you to the right place to download the app. It can also be viewed in HTML5 if you connect using your computer. You will be requested to set up an account to use the mobile app. This will allow you to share your calendar of show events across devices. You can then select AN16 from the list of 2016 SIAM events on the app or mobile site to view the schedule, browse speakers, attendees and exhibitors, view maps and building layouts, sync events with your mobile calendar, create your own show by selecting specific sessions, and more! 

To view just the AN16 sessions or the LS16 sessions, use the filter in the upper right when the schedule is open and select either AN16 or LS16. The filter can also be used to specify what kinds of sessions you wish to view.

Can’t make it to AN16 or missing a talk at the meeting? Tune into the conversation on the SIAM events app. Just go to the sessions that interest you and click on the “Discuss” button to read what attendees are saying about the talks.


newSIAM will host the NSF-SIAM Workshop on Optics and Photonics on Monday, July 11, 2016 during the Annual Meeting in Boston.
Travel awards are available to attend the workshop. See the above link.

This year the SIAM Annual Meeting will feature up to 25 e-posters. These are large electronic displays that you can plug your laptop into to show rich, interactive material at the poster session. See more information on the submissions page.
