This is the meeting of the SIAM Activity Group on Geosciences.

The study of geophysical systems at all scales, whether from a scientific or technological perspective, calls for sophisticated mathematical modeling, efficient computational methods, and pervasive integration with data. This effort is fundamentally interdisciplinary. This conference aims to stimulate the exchange of ideas among geoscientific modelers, applied mathematicians, statisticians, and other scientists, fostering new research in the mathematical foundations with an impact on geoscience applications.

This meeting is held in cooperation with SIMAI (Representative - Luca Formaggia, Politecnico di Milano, Italy) and the International Society for Porous Media (Representative – Sorin Pop, Hasselt University, Belgium).

This philosophy extends from SIAM conferences, to its publications, and to its governing structures and bodies. We expect all members of SIAM and participants in SIAM activities to work toward this commitment.
