Purpose

The purpose of the SIAM Committee on the Gene Golub SIAM Summer School is to manage the Gene Golub SIAM Summer School program.  This program, founded by SIAM as a result of a generous bequest of former SIAM president Gene Golub, offers graduate level summer schools in applied mathematics, computational science, and industrial mathematics, primarily for students in mathematics and computer science.

 

Background

Gene Golub left a generous bequest to SIAM to support students in mathematics and computer science. After studying various alternatives, in 2009 the SIAM Council and Board of Trustees approved a proposal to create the Gene Golub SIAM Summer School and use some portion of the revenues generated from the Golub bequest to support the summer schools.

The Gene Golub SIAM Summer School is intended to serve primarily graduate students in mathematics and computer science.  Each summer school will be for one or two weeks. A summer school includes course lectures as well as time for reading, discussions, and problem solving (or programming). A summer school is not a small scientific meeting or workshop. Lecturers are expected to spend considerable time mentoring students.  The locations, topics, and organizers of individual summer schools in the program will be selected from proposals received by the Committee.  Proposals in all relevant areas of applied mathematics, computational science, and industrial mathematics will be considered. Preference will be given to themes that have a computational component, and every third summer school will have a computational linear algebra theme, assuming that a meritorious proposal is received.

 

Charge to the Committee

The Committee is charged to plan, select, and provide oversight for the Gene Golub SIAM Summer Schools. As outlined in the proposal to establish a Gene Golub SIAM Summer School, the calendar of duties of the committee will be as follows. Planning for the summer school in year x (where x is greater than or equal to 2012) involves the following events:

In addition, the committee may make recommendations to make changes to these procedures and to the Gene Golub SIAM Summer School program. Such recommendations would go to the SIAM governing bodies (Council and Board), through the SIAM Vice President for Programs, for approval. The committee does not have the authority to make substantial changes to the Gene Golub SIAM Summer School program without approval of the governing bodies.

 

Committee Membership, Reporting and Relationships

This committee reports to the SIAM Vice President for Programs. The SIAM staff liaison to this committee will be the Director for Programs and Services. The committee will be composed of approximately twelve (12) SIAM members (including the chair), appointed by the SIAM President in consultation with the Vice President for Programs. Committee membership should be diverse, including with respect to scientific area and geography.  The first appointed committee will have staggered terms of 1, 2, 3, or 4 years. After the initial period, appointments will be for terms of four calendar year terms. Appointments  may be renewed for at most two consecutive terms.
