Membership

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

SIAM members save up to $130 on full registration for theSIAM Conference on Mathematical and Computational Issues in the Geosciences (GS15)! 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 ($130 for a Non-Member and $65 for a Non-Member Mini Speaker/Organizer) towards a SIAM membership.

If you are a SIAM member, it only costs $10 to join the SIAM Activity Group on Geosciences. 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.
