Student Days

 

Student Days at the 2017 SIAM Annual Meeting is an event for students and about students. Organizers have got it all covered this year, with activities and sessions where students can meet with both peers and professionals in their field, participate in a career fair, attend an information session on hot areas for jobs and research, and network with SIAM Student Chapters from all over the world.

Goals

Organized by the SIAM Education Committee (Chaired by Suzanne Weekes, Worcester Polytechnic Institute), Student Days are designed to encourage student participation in SIAM, to help students learn more about applied mathematics and computational science as both fields of study and as careers, and to provide a forum for emerging mathematicians to learn about their field from the professionals who know the answers. Organizers also hope to encourage those in the learning community to establish new SIAM student chapters and to promote interaction between students and SIAM leadership.

Student Days sessions include presentations by student chapter representatives and the winners of the SIAM Student Paper Prizes.  In addition, students can attend plenary sessions from the SIAM Annual Meeting (AN17). Other activities that will enhance the meeting for students include a special orientation prior to Sunday’s welcome reception, a student lounge, and a session for students with select conference invited speakers. Other activities that will be of interest to students include the Careers in Business, Industry and Government panel, career fair, and evening reception on Monday, the poster session on Tuesday, the community lecture on Wednesday, and the professional development activities on Thursday evening.

Student Chapter Meeting with SIAM Leadership

Student Days 2017 will feature the Student Chapter Meeting with SIAM Leadership. This meeting gives faculty advisors and student chapter representatives the opportunity to meet with key decision makers to discuss ideas for improving student chapters and ways that SIAM can meet the needs of current and future student members all over the world.
