About the SIAM UKIE Section

The SIAM UKIE Section was formed in 1996 by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) with the aim to promote and support applied and industrial mathematics in the UK and the Republic of Ireland.

The activities of the Section are consistent with this objective and include the organization of annual meetings, student chapter events, and support for other initiatives and events that bring together SIAM members from different fields.
