Speaker and Activities Calendar

We tend to meet as needed before or after CAAM colloquia and grad seminars.  The CAAM colloquia occur every Monday at 3pm (DH 1064) and the grad seminars occur every Wednesday at 12:15pm (also DH 1064). Many of the below speakers are presented at the CAAM department seminar.   The following is a calendar with upcoming activities and speakers, of interest for SIAM members. New events are added regularly. More activities can be found at Rice School of Engineering

Join SIAM before the weekly CAAM Department Colloquia for a get-together! Come meet other CAAM students and faculty, and enjoy drinks and refreshments, including fruit and cheeses. SIAM/CAAM Get-togethers occur every Monday, the hour before colloquia (2-3pm) in DH 1044 (location might change for Fall 2017).
