Leading the applied mathematics community . . .Join SIAM and save!

SIAM members save up to $160 on full registration for the SIAM International Conference on Data Mining (SDM23)! Join your peers in supporting the premier professional society for applied mathematicians and computational scientists. SIAM members receive subscriptions to SIAM Review, SIAM Unwrapped and SIAM News and enjoy substantial discounts on SIAM books, journal subscriptions, and conference registrations.

If you are not a SIAM member and do not join SIAM before you register for the conference, you can pay the non-member rate and still apply the difference between what you paid for the conference and what a member would have paid ($160 for a non-member) towards a SIAM membership. After you register, contact SIAM Customer Service for details about membership or join online.

If you are a SIAM member, it only costs $15 to join the SIAM Activity Group on Data Science. As a SIAG/DATA member, you are eligible for an additional $15 discount on this conference. As the total price of membership plus conference registration is the same, you might want to consider joining the activity group.

Any student who registers as a non-member will automatically be given a free membership in SIAM, so please ensure that your contact information and online profile are complete when you register.
