Collaborating with other chapters
There are opportunities for collaborating and sharing ideas among the chapters from across the globe. SIAM will provide partial support for your chapter to send a student representative to attend the 2013 SIAM Annual Meeting in San Diego, California, July 8-12, 2013, and to represent the chapter at Student Days and the SIAM Chapter Meeting with Leadership.
Communicating with other chapters
- You can keep in touch with other SIAM chapters and plan collaborations.
Electronic mailing lists for chapter faculty advisors (firstname.lastname@example.org) and student representatives (email@example.com) facilitate the exchange of ideas. When new chapters are approved, the faculty advisor will be added to the list serve for chapter faculty advisors. Student representatives, and all student chapter officers, will be added to the list serve for student chapter leadership.
- SIAM has a new Student Blog for its active and vibrant student community. SIAM Student Chapter representatives can update other chapters on events and activities they are organizing in addition to sharing and seeking ideas on fundraising and public outreach.
