SIAM Central States Section
The SIAM Central States Section was formed in 2014 to serve SIAM members in Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, and Oklahoma.
The purpose of this section is to enhance the communication among the section members, promote the collaboration for both basic research and applications of mathematics to industry and science, represent applied and computational mathematics in the entire proposed central region, and support the SIAM mission in the central region of the USA.
The proposed activities for the SIAM Central Section include annual section meetings, seminars and workshops for advanced topics of common interests of the section members, encouraging new SIAM student chapters and facilitating all the SIAM student chapters in the central region to connect together, promoting collaboration in applied mathematics and its applications to industry and science, and expanding the influence of SIAM in the central states. Participation in SIAM Central States Section activities will be open to all institutions and industries in the region with an interest in applied and computational mathematics.
