SIAMUW Weekly Seminar
The SIAMUW seminar is a student-run seminar series for the masters and
Ph.D. students Applied Mathematics Department. Our most exciting role
is to provide an opportunity for our students to personally meet with
Distinguished Colloquia speakers. We also host talks, given by
fellow graduate students throughout the university, on student
research topics as well as on tools that help make us more productive
and effective students and researchers.
Talk-related and generally useful files will be posted on our page
of the AMATH Internal Wiki. In particular this includes files
associated with a number of tutorials given at our meetings. Students
without access to the wiki should email
SIAMUW to request information.
In addition to our weekly seminars, we also host an annual poster competition.
The winner of the poster competition (selected by voting) gets to
represent our student chapter at the SIAM Annual Meeting. The poster
competition is typically held in January. For more information, email
