Hello All,

The IIT Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Student
Chapter would like to welcome everyone back!  We have a variety of fun and
interesting events planned for this semester, and will be sending
announcements as they approach, but for now we would like to inform our
student members of some important upcoming deadlines for the SIAM Annual
Meeting <http://www.siam.org/meetings/an17/>.

The SIAM Annual Meeting is the main conference organized by SIAM, and this
year it is being held jointly with their Conference on Industrial and
Applied Geometry and their Conference on Control and Its Applications.  It
provides an opportunity for students to meet other professionals in their
field, to see what current research is taking place, and even to present
their own work.  This year it is taking place in *Pittsburgh, PA, July
10-14*.  If you are registered as a student member (which IIT students can
do for free here <http://siam.org/joinsiam/>) you may be eligible for a student
travel award <http://www.siam.org/prizes/sponsored/travel.php>, covering
the registration fee as well as travel and lodging costs.

The deadline for travel award applications is *January 27*, while the
deadline for lecture and poster submissions
<http://www.siam.org/meetings/an17/submissions.php> is *February 1*.
Travel award preference tends to go to students who will be giving a
presentation.  The travel award submission requires a statement of purpose,
a current CV, and a recommendation from an advisor, so if you do plan on
applying, please do so soon.  In addition, if you happen to know someone
that you think might be interested in participating in the conference,
please pass this information along.

Good luck on your submission, and have a great semester!

Adam Rumpf
IIT SIAM Student Chapter President
