SIAM Student Chapter
UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA

Dear members of the SIAM community,

The Division of Applied Mathematics at Brown University will be hosting a workshop on agent based modeling March 21-22. This workshop is aimed at young graduate students and advanced undergraduate students who are interested in this topic. The deadline for application was February 23 but we still have funding for students. Applications for travel funding for U.S. citizens can be submitted at: www.mathprograms.org/db/programs/356.

Sincerely,
John Gemmer

The inaugural National Math Festival will take place in Washington DC on Saturday April 18, 2015. SIAM is seeking volunteers to help the National Museum of Mathematics (MOMATH) operate over 20 Math Midway exhibits at the Smithsonian Gardens (Enid A. Haupt Garden). We would be grateful for volunteers for the entire day (8:30A - 4:30P), morning (8:30A to 12:30P) or afternoon (12:30P - 4:30P) shifts. MOMATH estimates that they will need 50 or so volunteers throughout the day.

SIAM student chapters providing four or more student volunteers, for the entire day, may be eligible for (limited) travel funding. Please contact Byong Kwon ("BK") at bkwon1@masonlive.gmu.edu for more details on funding eligibility and to apply for funding.

To volunteer for MOMATH at the festival, please register at the following website, www.dcvolunteers.momath.org.
