## Student Chapters Update

SIAM provided close to $40,000 to 87 chapters to support activities during the 2013-2014 academic year. The activities that they planned were limited only by their imaginations. Here are some of the exciting activities that SIAM chapters sponsored during the 2013-2014 academic year.

On April 26, the **California State University, Fresno **chapter hosted Math Field Day, an event aimed at promoting mathematics to middle and high school students. The event drew roughly 600 participants who got to compete in events testing their speed, problem solving, and ability to work in teams. The chapter also participated in Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement on February 22, volunteering to guide middle and high school students from disadvantaged areas in group sessions on robotics, rockets, and catapult and bridge building, among other topics.

## GSMMC 2014: Graduate Student Mathematical Modeling Camp

This is a paid announcement that appeared in SIAM News.

*June 17–20, 2014*

*Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute*

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at RPI is pleased to announce the 11th annual GSMM Camp. The camp is a four-day informal workshop in which graduate students work in teams on problems brought by invited faculty mentors. The problems, inspired by real problems that arise in industrial applications, span a wide range of mathematics and are designed to promote problem-solving skills while the team approach is designed to promote scientific communication.

Graduate students at all levels are invited to participate. General information and an online application form can be found at http://www.rpi.edu/dept/math/GSMMCamp/. Financial support for travel and local accommodations is available. The application deadline is April 25, 2014.

Graduate students attending the GSMM Camp are also invited to participate in the Mathematical Problems in Industry (MPI) Workshop, to be held at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, June 23–27, 2014. For further information about MPI 2014, students should visit http://web.njit.edu/~rmoore/MPI2014/.

## Student Chapter Funding 2013-14

SIAM awarded a total of $39,042 to the following 81 chapters for activities taking place during the 2013-2014 academic year. Activities include seminars, workshops, regional student conferences, guest lectures, special presentations and field trips.

## Outstanding undergrad research in SIURO last month

SIAM Undergraduate Research Online, SIAM’s web-based publication often referred to as SIURO, publishes outstanding undergraduate research in applied and computational mathematics. Two types of articles can be found in SIURO: papers to which undergraduates have made a significant contribution, and expository (survey) papers of high quality written by a faculty member or researcher for an undergrad audience.

The latest paper by Ling Han Meng, Joseph Geumlek, Holly Chu, Justin Hoogenstyrd under their advisor Ernie Esser is called Contextual Point Matching for Video Stabilization. The paper explores the many videos that suffer from a shaking or moving camera that distract viewers from the subject or scene. The authors describe a process called video stabilization which uses software to fix unwanted movements. Their method attempts to find point correspondences in subsequent frames of footage with great success, according to the authors. Video stabilization not only provides better results compared to other methods, it can also be implemented without significantly increasing computational costs.

Additional papers will be posted online as they are accepted.
