Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) Workshop
The Workshop for Women Graduate Students and Recent P.h.D.’s is held in conjunction with the SIAM Annual Meeting. Please visit http://www.awm-math.org/workshops.html for more information.
Workshop Celebrating Diversity
Janet Best, The Ohio State University
Erika Camacho, Arizona State University
James Curry, University of Colorado
This annual event provides a forum for scientific interaction among a truly diverse group of participants. A majority of speakers will be women and members of underrepresented groups, ranging from beginning graduate students to senior scientists. Everyone is welcome to attend the talks of these symposia.
The workshop is intended to accomplish several goals:
- To clearly and explicitly express SIAM's message of enthusiastic support for members of underrepresented groups. The workshop is deliberately integrated into the regular SIAM meeting in order to encourage broad participation in SIAM meetings and to set an example of inclusion.
- To bring together a mixture of people from different backgrounds and different levels of professional experience, ranging from beginning graduate students to senior scientists.
- To serve as an example of symposia with research presentations by individuals with diverse personal backgrounds including those from marginalized communities who are not typically part of this research environment.
- To provide an informal, comfortable setting where a diverse group of young researchers can meet applied and computational mathematicians who hold a wide variety of positions in academia, national laboratories, industry, and government.
Both the participants in the Workshop Celebrating Diversity and the larger SIAM community will benefit from the diverse collection of applied mathematicians presenting here.
Look for the SIAM-DW designation throughout the program. These sessions are shared with the Workshop Celebrating Diversity.

Student Day provides student members of SIAM the opportunity to attend presentations given by their peers. Presentations for Student Day will include lectures given by the SIAM Student Paper Prize winners, presentations from the SIAM winning teams for the Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM), presentations of the research projects of student representatives from SIAM Student Chapters, and undergraduate students presenting papers in computational science and engineering.
