Aims and scope of JSIAM

The Japan Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (JSIAM) is the central organization for industrial and applied mathematicians in Japan. It currently has more than 1,600 individual members and 25 corporate members including Toyota, Nissan, Toshiba, Hitachi, NEC, and Canon. The JSIAM's objective is to foster the mathematical sciences and engineering mathematics which contribute to the innovation of science and technology. It is a cross-disciplinary society consisting of people researching mathematical phenomena (in mathematics as well as in other sciences), those who apply mathematics (engineering, technology), and those who develop methods of analysis (computer science, experimental science).
