To encourage the promotion of Applied Mathematics and Computational Science to students, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) supports the activities of local Student Chapters. Currently there are over 150 Chapters worldwide.

In Italy, the PoliMi Student Chapter (involving also Università degli Studi di Milano and Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore - Brescia) has been founded in 2013, followed by the SISSA Student Chapter in 2015.

To promote mutual knowledge and networking among their students, the two Chapters, jointly with Emory Student Chapter (Atlanta, US), organize a new meeting, with lectures by two leading experts in Applied Mathematics and short presentations by the students on their research.
