Mentoring Program (in-person only)

In collaboration with the Broader Engagement program, SIAM MDS22's Mentoring program is designed to match early career researchers (including but not limited to students, postdocs, faculty, and professionals) with experienced researchers. The mentors will help the mentees navigate the conference program and create meaningful interactions that promote mutual growth and development.
