Gene Golub SIAM Summer School

Graduate Student Mathematical Modeling Camp and Mathematical Problems in Industry Workshop


These summer workshops, hosted by SIAM and local organizers, teach graduate students to put their skills to the test by tackling real-world problems.
Graduate Student Mathematical Modeling Camp (GSMMC)

Graduate Student Mathematical Modeling Camp (GSMMC)

GSMMC is a four-day summer training experience focused on graduate- and advanced undergraduate-level training and career development. Students work in teams to model and analyze problems posed by experienced faculty mentors, developing the type of modeling and problem-solving skills prized by industrial researchers while in a guided setting.

Applications are now open and must be completed by April 21, 2023 for full consideration. Full financial support is available for participants.

Location: University of Delaware
Dates: June 7 – 10, 2023

Mathematical Problems in Industry (MPI) Workshop

Mathematical Problems in Industry (MPI) Workshop

The MPI Workshop is a gathering held annually the week immediately following the GSMMC that brings together researchers in the mathematical sciences and representatives from industry looking for mathematical insight into their R&D projects. The problems presented by the industrial representatives vary widely in nature but typically incorporate a combination of modeling, analysis, and computation. Workshop participants spend the week in working groups of senior faculty and attending scientists, postdoctoral fellows, students, and the industry representatives to discuss and tackle the problems in an informal setting, culminating in presentations on the final day and written reports in the months following the Workshop.

Location: New Jersey Institute of Technology
Dates: June 12-16, 2023

GSMMC and the MPI Workshop are supported by the National Science Foundation and the Jim Crowley Fund for Student Support. We are also grateful to this year’s MPI Workshop sponsors.


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.
