SIAM Texas-Louisiana Section (SIAM-TXLA)
The Texas-Louisiana Section was formed in 2016 to serve SIAM members in Texas and Louisiana. Its purpose is to provide ongoing opportunity for mathematicians working in both industry and academia to come together and form a strong social and promotional network; to promote a sense of identity as mathematicians; to allow members to share ideas, continue or reestablish links with other mathematicians; and to provide a platform for a form of continuing education/collaborative environment in our geographic area.
