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.

Climate change, biodiversity, infectious diseases, sustainability, energy, food, and water are among the areas of greatest global concern. The SIAM Activity Group on Mathematics of Planet Earth (SIAG/MPE) provides a forum for mathematicians and computational scientists engaged in these critical priority areas. The interests of SIAG/MPE span the range from developing quantitative techniques to providing policy makers with tools for qualitative decision support.
