Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is an US-based professional non-profit organization of applied mathematicians who are working in the field of education and research of applied mathematics. They do so with publishing textbooks and academic journals, holding academic conferences, and giving awards to experts of applied mathematics.

Difference Between AMS and SIAM[change | change source]

AMS (American Mathematical Society) is also an organization for American mathematicians, but SIAM and AMS has the following differences:

  • The interest of AMS is the field of pure and applied mathematics, but SIAM focuses on applied mathematics, especially statistics, optimization, and numerical analysis.
  • AMS takes action in the United States, but SIAM has several branches inside and outside the United States. For example, SIAM has MEXSIAM (Mexico Section of SIAM), ARSIAM (Argentina Section of SIAM), COSIAM (Columbia Section of SIAM), SIAM UKIE (United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland Section of SIAM), and EASIAM (East Asia Section of SIAM).
