AN14 Student Days
SIAM student chapters are invited to participate in Student Days during the 2014 SIAM Annual Meeting (AN14) in Chicago, Illinois,, July 7-11, 2014. Student Days are organized by the SIAM Education Committee.
Opportunities for Student Chapter Participation
- SIAM will provide up to $500 for each chapter to send one student representative to attend the SIAM Annual Meeting. Requests for additional travel money from overseas student chapters will be considered on a case by case basis. Please note that all representatives must be SIAM members.
- SIAM has organized a special Student Chapter Meeting with SIAM Leadership on Tuesday July 8, at which all the student representatives of the chapters and faculty advisors will meet with members of the SIAM Board, Council, and Education Committee to discuss any matters related to improving student chapters and services that SIAM provides to students.
- The Education Committee makes a limited number of invitations (because of scheduling constraints) for student paper presentations at a special Student Days sessions. These presentations must be given by a student member of the chapter (who is also a SIAM member) and must reflect research to which the student has contributed significantly. Twelve chapters are selected annually by the Education Committee on a rotating basis.
- In addition to the experience of attending the annual meeting, special Student Days activities include research presentations by student chapters, by undergraduates in applied and computational mathematics, and by the 2014 winners of the Mathematical Contest in Modeling and the SIAM Student Paper Prizes.
- New activities, started in 2012, include a special orientation for students prior to the opening reception on Sunday, a student lounge set up for networking and meeting students from other institutions, and an opportunity for students to informally meet some of the meeting’s prestigious invited speakers.
How to Participate in Student Day
- Select a student representative from your chapter who is a SIAM member to attend the 2014 SIAM Annual Meeting and Student Days activities including the Chapter Meeting with SIAM Leadership breakfast. Notify Nancy Snell at SIAM of the student who will be representing your chapter by April 1, 2014. Student representatives will be responsible for registering for the Annual Meeting ($110 on or before June 10 or $125 onsite) and making all their own travel and hotel arrangements. We encourage students to make travel and hotel arrangements early. Hotel information will be posted in mid January 2014 and conference registration will open in April. Students may request reimbursement within 60 days following the meeting by submitting an expense report form and receipts.
- If your chapter is one of the twelve chapters invited to have their representative present their research during Student Days:
- Send an email to Susan Whitehouse by March 1, 2014, including the name, affiliation, and email address of the student member who will be presenting the paper on behalf of your chapter. The information will be included in an annual meeting insert in the April issue of SIAM News, so please include title if known.
