The Heidelberg Chapter of SIAM

unites students, faculty members and anyone interested in the combination of scientific computing and industrial applications. It is supported by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).

Chapter Goals

The Heidelberg Chapter of SIAM aims to

  • foster the bilateral exchange of industry and academia
  • promote ideas of scientific computing in industry
  • strenghten international cooperations between young scientists


Based on an irregular schedule, we perform industrial field trips to take the students into the heart of industry, to make acquaintance with possible future employers and to strenghten academic-industrial cooperations.

On the academic side, we organize regular chapter meetings with invited big-shots from industry and academia, with following non-formal get-togethers perfect for networking. 

Upcoming Activities: Meeting of European SIAM Chapters 2017

The Meeting of European SIAM Chapters (MESIAM-2017) will be held in Prague on August 28-30, 2017.  A group of our members will attend the meeting. More information can be found here.
