Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) Workshop

The Workshop for Women Graduate Students and Recent P.h.D.’s is held in conjunction with the SIAM Annual Meeting.  Please visit for more information.

All registered attendees are invited to attend the AWM Workshop technical sessions.


SIAM-NSF Workshop on Optics and Photonics

Advances in our understanding of the behavior of light are necessary both for improvements in current technologies and for the realization of new and envisioned technologies. Due to recent advances in computational tools, material science and nanostructure fabrication, mathematicians have a larger role than ever to play in this field. This workshop will be an opportunity for leaders in the field to present their vision of the future of this field. The goals are to familiarize a wide range of researchers with the NSF call for proposals "Optics and Photonics" and encourage collaborations among researchers in this field. The Optics and Photonics (OP) program is an NSF-wide activity that involves multiple Divisions within the Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS).

Travel awards will be available for graduate students, early career researchers, and for researchers who are members of underrepresented minorities of any rank who are based at US institutions. The travel award provides maximum of $650 for travel and a free registration to AN16.” To apply, go to and follow the instructions. Note if you are a woman or a member of an underrepresented minority and are more than six years post PhD, you may still apply, and as for an early career applicant, a letter of recommendation is suggested but not required.

The travel award deadline has been extended to May 30, 2016.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant to Drexel University by the US. National Science Foundation.

Student Days

Organized by the SIAM Education Committee.

Student Days provides student members of SIAM the opportunity to attend presentations given by their peers. Presentations for Student Days will include lectures given by the SIAM Student Paper Prize winners, presentations from the SIAM winning teams for the Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM), and presentations of the research projects of student representatives from SIAM Student Chapters.

All registered attendees are invited to attend the Student Days sessions.

Additional information is posted here.


Workshop Celebrating Diversity

This annual event provides a chance for students to listen to technical talks presented by minority graduate students. The workshop is intended to accomplish several goals:

All registered attendees are invited to attend Workshop Celebrating Diversity sessions.

SIAM and the Conference Organizing Committee wish to extend their thanks and appreciation to the U.S. National Science Foundation for its support of the Workshop Celebrating Diversity.
