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. 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.
