University of Kansas SIAM Student Chapter

The University of Kansas SIAM chapter has the purpose of popularizing the applications of mathematics and computational science in a wide variety of disciplines such as engineering, statistics, physics, computer science, and economics.

Our goal is to establish communication, collaboration, and connections between fellow members, other student chapters, and departmental faculty and foster creativity and curiosity of ideas and learning in applied mathematics and computational science.

The SIAM chapter at KU is a new student-run organization that is based in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Kansas. Our organization is open to all members of KU community. We hold bi-weekly meetings, organize presentations and conversations throughout the Fall and Spring semesters.

SIAM meeting: 11/29/2017
