Public Awareness

In accordance with the goals and mission, SIAM works with the media, our membership, institutions, academia, corporations, students, scientific societies and the general public to advance the application of mathematics and computational science to engineering, industry, science, and society. We promote member research, SIAM conferences, events, prizes and publications, deliver timely information regarding science policy to members and policy makers, and provide for the exchange of relevant information and ideas to the international community.
