Hotel Room Sharing Form (link)

SIAM will keep a list of attendees who wish to share a room with another attendee to reduce expenses. If you are interested in finding a roommate and would like to be placed on the rooming list, please forward complete contact information to meetings@siam.org(preferred) or fax it to the SIAM Conference Department at +1-215-386-7999.  Be sure to mention that you want to be placed on the CSE11 list. If information is incomplete, we cannot guarantee that your name will be included. SIAM will provide the listing electronically to all attendees on the list.  It is the responsibility of the attendee to make the contacts and arrangements with other attendees on the list.

Student Day - Wednesday, March 2, 2011 [PDF]

Student Day at the 2011 SIAM Conference on Computational Science & Engineering is for students and about students. Organizers have got it all covered this year, with activities and sessions where students can meet with both peers and professionals in their field, find out about hot areas for jobs and research, and network with SIAM Student Chapters from all over the world.

Goals
Organized by the SIAM Education Committee (Chaired by Peter Turner, Clarkson University), Student Day is designed to encourage student participation in SIAM, to help students learn more about applied mathematics and computational science as both fields of study and as careers, and to provide a forum for emerging mathematicians to learn about their field from the professionals who know the answers. Organizers also hope to encourage those in the learning community to establish new student chapters of SIAM and to promote interaction between students and SIAM leadership.

Events and Happenings
Student Day sessions include presentations by student chapter representatives and undergraduate research projects in CS&E. In addition, students can attend plenary sessions from the 2011 SIAM Conference on Computational Science & Engineering.

Meeting with Leaders and Influencing SIAM (by invitation only)
Student Day 2011 will also feature the Student Chapter Meeting with SIAM Leadership. This meeting gives faculty advisors and student chapter representatives the opportunity to meet with key decision makers to discuss ideas for improving student chapters and ways that SIAM can meet the needs of current and future student members all over the world. Each chapter selects one student to attend the event as its chapter representative.

Register
Starting in November 2010, students can register for the 2011 SIAM Conference on Computational Science & Engineering for a special reduced rate: $110 before January 31 or $125 onsite. Student Day is included.

Reservations
If you plan to attend Student Day or the 2011 SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering, reserve your room at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino. The deadline to make hotel reservations is February 7, 2011, however, since rooms in the block often sell out prior to the deadline, we recommend that you make your reservations early.
