If you are a SIAM member, it only costs $10 to join the SIAM Activity Group on Dynamical Systems (SIAG/DS). As a SIAG/DS 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.
