Sponsored by the SIAM Activity Group on Applied Mathematics Education.
This meeting is being held jointly with the SIAM Annual Meeting (AN18), the SIAM Conference on Mathematical Aspects of Materials Science (MS18) and the SIAM Workshop on Network Science (NS18).
Statement on Inclusiveness
As a professional society, SIAM is committed to providing an inclusive climate that encourages the open expression and exchange of ideas, that is free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation, and that is welcoming and comfortable to all members and to those who participate in its activities. In pursuit of that commitment, SIAM is dedicated to the philosophy of equality of opportunity and treatment for all participants regardless of gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion or religious belief, age, marital status, disabilities, veteran status, field of expertise, or any other reason not related to scientific merit. This philosophy extends from SIAM conferences, to its publications, and to its governing structures and bodies. We expect all members of SIAM and participants in SIAM activities to work towards this commitment.

Information will be posted as soon as it is available.
The purpose of the SIAM Activity Group on Applied Mathematics Education is to advance the development and practice of educational programs, courses, and resources in applied mathematics. This will include but not be limited to organizing conferences, maintaining a curated web-based repository of resources in modeling, computational and applied mathematics, and mathematical sciences, including their many applications. The potential constituencies of the SIAG will include faculty members in colleges and universities who are interested in applied and computational mathematics and have a strong interest in educational innovation, practice, improvement and faculty development; mathematics teacher educators, especially for in-service professional development; and graduate students in applied mathematical areas with ambitions for careers in academia with a strong education component.
SIAM and the Conference Organizing Committee wish to extend their thanks and appreciation to the U.S. National Science Foundation for its support of this conference.
