Joint SIAM-IMA Student Chapter

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is a US-based academic body dedicated to the use applied mathematics, and computational and data science in industry. Its main activities include the organisation of conferences and the publication of books and journals, but the society is also keen on sponsoring a SIAM chapter.

The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) is the UK’s chartered professional body for mathematicians and is one of the UK’s learned societies. IMA supports postgraduate students by sponsoring joint SIAM-IMA chapter.

These chapters are student-led societies aimed at promoting mathematics and computational science among university students. Their goal is to organise chapter activities, such as

  • lunch discussions about career opportunities
  • lectures by guest speakers
  • undergraduate competitions and social functions
  • field trips to industrial laboratories or SIAM section meetings
