### Welcome!

The University of Connecticut Chapter of SIAM was established in 2017.

The purpose of our chapter is to unite students who are interested in applied and industrial mathematics, to promote interdisciplinary interaction between students at UConn, and to build a connection to industry.

If you are interested in becoming a member of our chapter or want to be added to our mailing list, please write to siam_math@uconn.edu.

SIAM Student Chapter is co-organizing a one-day conference that will be held both online and in-person. The main goal of the conference is to give undergraduate students interested in math an idea of what graduate school may be like and to showcase some current research done by grad students and faculty members. The talks will be given at the level of a junior or senior level undergraduate. We will also host a poster session for undergraduate students to display their research.
