Student Days is for students and about students. Organizers have it covered this year, with activities and sessions where students can meet with both peers and professionals in their field, participate in Affinity Groups led by experts in their field, compete in the inaugural SIAM Hackathon, and network with SIAM Student Chapters from all over the world.
Organized by the SIAM Education Committee (Chaired by Kathleen Kavanagh, SIAM Vice President for Education, Clarkson University, U.S.), 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 student chapters of SIAM and to promote interaction between students and SIAM leadership.
Students may attend all conference plenary talks, poster sessions and minisymposia. The conference also includes minitutorials for hands-on learning, minisymposia focused on career opportunities and development, and interactive panel sessions on smart moves for early career professionals. Additional Student Days sessions include presentations by student chapter representatives. A special orientation prior to the Welcome Reception and a session for students with selected conference invited speakers will enhance students’ experience at CSE23. And don’t forget the inaugural SIAM Hackathon, in which student teams compete to solve real-world challenges from industrial sponsors!
