This annual event provides a chance for students to listen to technical talks presented by minority graduate students. The workshop is intended to accomplish several goals:
To send a clear, explicit message of enthusiastic welcome and support from SIAM to members of under-represented groups. The workshop is deliberately held as part of a regular SIAM meeting so that the participants can combine the experiences of attending a regular scientific meeting and a special occasion dedicated to them.
To bring together a mixture of people from different levels of age and professional experience, ranging from undergraduate students to senior scientists.
To provide an opportunity for minority graduate students to present their research.
To provide an informal, comfortable setting (a lunch) where all the students can meet applied and computational mathematicians with a wide variety of jobs in academia, national laboratories, industry, and government.
See the following sessions, all part of the Workshop Celebrating Diversity.

SIAM and the Conference Organizing Committee wish to extend their thanks and appreciation to the U.S. National Science Foundation for its support of the Workshop Celebrating Diversity.
Organizer: Ali Pinar, Sandia National Laboratories

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