2018 SIAM Great Lakes Section Annual Meeting

GLSIAM 2018 at Wayne State University April 21, 2018

About the Conference

The Great Lakes section of SIAM (GLSIAM) was formed in 1988, to serve Michigan, Northern Ohio, Northern Indiana, Southern Ontario, and the surrounding areas. It organizes its annual conferences around themes reflecting its members' evolving interests within applied mathematics. Topical disciplines have included Computer Aided Design, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Numerical Solutions of PDEs, Complex Systems, and Bio-Mathematics. The 2018 meeting will take place at State Hall, Wayne State University on 04/21/2018. (Conference Poster)

About Wayne State University

Wayne State University (WSU) is a public research university located in Detroit, Michigan. Founded in 1868, WSU consists of 13 schools and colleges offering nearly 350 programs to more than 27,000 graduate and undergraduate students. Wayne State University is Michigan's third-largest university, one of the 100 largest universities in the United States, and ranked in the top 50 American public universities for research expenditures.

The WSU main campus encompasses 203 acres linking more than 100 education and research buildings in the heart of Detroit. The Wayne State Warriors compete in the NCAA Division II Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC).

Wayne State University, Michigan State University, and the University of Michigan are the three institutional members of the State of Michigan's University Research Corridor.

About SIAM

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is an international community of over 14,000 individual members. Almost 500 academic, manufacturing, research and development, service and consulting organizations, government, and military organizations worldwide are institutional members. SIAM fosters the development of applied mathematical and computational methodologies needed in these various application areas. Applied mathematics in partnership with computational science is essential in solving many real-world problems. Through publications, research, and community, the mission of SIAM is to build cooperation between mathematics and the worlds of science and technology.

SIAM was incorporated in 1952 as a nonprofit organization to convey useful mathematical knowledge to other professionals who could implement mathematical theory for practical, industrial, or scientific use. Since then, SIAM’s goals have remained the same:

  • To advance the application of mathematics and computational science to engineering, industry, science, and society;
  • To promote research that will lead to effective new mathematical and computational methods and techniques for science, engineering, industry, and society;
  • To provide media for the exchange of information and ideas among mathematicians, engineers, and scientists.
