SIAM, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, was incorporated in 1952 as a non-profit organization to convey useful mathematical knowledge to other professionals who could implement mathematical theory for practical, industrial, or scientific use. SIAM aims to ensure strong interaction between mathematics and other scientific and technological communities through membership activities, conferences, and publication of journals and books.
