SIAM Student Chapter

 

Welcome to the University of California at Merced SIAM Student Chapter
The UC Merced chapter of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is dedicated to enhancing the applied mathematics mission of the university and providing developmental opportunities to its students. Towards that end, we currently run the student-led SAMPLe (Some Applied Math for People to Learn) seminar and organize social events whenever possible.
 
UC Merced students from any department are encouraged to join the SIAM student chapter. UC Merced students are also eligible for a free membership with SIAM. Information on how to obtain membership can be found here.
