SIAM Undergraduate Research Online (SIURO) is a web-based publication devoted to undergraduate research in applied and computational mathematics. The publication represents a wide range of applied topics, including but not limited to, analysis, discrete mathematics, statistics, operations research, optimization, dynamical systems, modeling, and computation. Typical areas of application include but are not limited to, physical, life, financial, and management sciences and engineering. Submitted papers may emphasize the development of a particular mathematical model, possibly in conjunction with laboratory or experimental studies; the development of a particular method of solution; or the analysis/comparison of existing methods of solution. Survey papers may be accepted if they are of exceptionally high quality. Submissions are not limited by these guidelines. The editorial board will consider other innovative contributions, particularly those that take advantage of the online nature of the publication. In all cases, a strong emphasis will be placed on the quality of the writing and presentation.

Papers written by undergraduate students (or teams of students) are now being accepted. Each paper must be submitted with a letter from a sponsor. The sponsor may be a faculty member at the student’s institution or at an institution the student is visiting, or someone associated with a non-academic organization or government lab who supervised the research. The sponsor’s letter must document the fact that the research was done while the student was an undergraduate. Sponsors will not be listed as coauthors; however, a line may appear on the title page recognizing the guidance of the sponsor.

This publication offers an opportunity for undergraduates to publish research that they have completed as part of their undergraduate education and provides undergraduates incentives for conducting research. It delivers the experience of preparing and submitting a paper, having the paper read by outside referees, and responding to the referees. It is a source of articles on applied and computational topics that are accessible to undergraduate students. For faculty advisers and mentors, the publication provides models of outstanding undergraduate research.

Papers will be posted online as they are accepted. The turnaround in refereeing papers will be very short.

This publication will be promoted and published by SIAM. Subscription and access are free and open to the public.
