SIAM Texas-Louisiana Section (SIAM-TXLA)
The Texas-Louisiana Section was formed in 2016 to serve SIAM members in Texas and Louisiana. Its purpose is to provide ongoing opportunity for mathematicians working in both industry and academia to come together and form a strong social and promotional network; to promote a sense of identity as mathematicians; to allow members to share ideas, continue or reestablish links with other mathematicians; and to provide a platform for a form of continuing education/collaborative environment in our geographic area.
(All terms January 1, 2017 – December 31, 2017)

SIAM TX-LA in cooperation with SIAM Imaging Sciences Activity group is organizing the Houston Imaging Sciences Symposium from October 2nd-3rd, 2017. Register Here!
This two-day symposium will bring together experts and practitioners of imaging sciences in various industry, including but not limited to oil and medical industries.
Focus will be on the mathematical and numerical aspects of imaging. At the same time, the focus will also be on how to apply the mathematics to solve industry problems of today. Look at what the future holds for imaging, find intersection between imaging and all the fantastic improvements in machine learning, reduced order models, compressive sensing, etc.
