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. We are happy to accept requests for promotion of relevant events or announcements. Please be aware that this request and content will need to fit SIAM criteria for promotion, and it should be expected that publishing will happen at least 2-3 weeks after receiving the request.
