AWM Activities at SIAM Annual Meeting

AWM Workshop at SIAM

AWM-SIAM Sonia Kovalevsky Lecture

AWM and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) established the annual Sonia Kovalevsky Lecture to highlight significant contributions of women to applied or computational mathematics. The first lecture took place in 2003 and has since been given each year at the SIAM Annual Meeting.      

Irene M. Gamba will deliver the 2014 Sonia Kovalevsky Lecture

AWM Workshop for graduate students and women who have received the Ph.D. within the last five years.

The workshop consists of a poster session by graduate students and two minisymposia featuring selected recent Ph.D.s, plus an informational minisymposium directed at starting a career. The graduate student poster session includes all areas of research, but each research minisymposium will have a definite focus selected from a variety of areas including Mathematical Biology, Modeling, Control, Optimization, Scientific Computing, and PDEs and Applications.     

As part of the AWM 2016 SIAM Workshop in Boston n July 2016, there will be a Poster Presentation and Competition. A team of judges will select the top poster. The winner will be offered a prize of a visit to a North American Mathematical Sciences Institute event with basic expenses paid. The prize visit will  normally occur within a year of the date of the poster competition unless there are unusual circumstances. The Mathematical Sciences Institutes with the help of Dr. Leslie Hogben, AIM, and Dr. Ulrica Wilson, ICERM, Co-Chairs of the Mathematical Sciences Institute Diversity Committee  will work with the recipient of the top poster award to find the best opportunity available for that poster presenter.
