Fellows Selection Procedures
The Fellows Program will develop in two primary stages:
- Start-up for the first year (2009). The initial class is automatically selected according to objective criteria approved as part of the program.
In order to speed the development of the SIAM Fellows Program and to insure sufficient fellows for the Fellows Selection Committee, Fellowship will be conferred on a number of SIAM members upon program inception. The initial Fellows will be selected from among those SIAM members whose previous levels of recognition place them clearly among the members intended to be recognized by the program.
Any SIAM member who believes that, based on the start-up procedures, there is an omission from this list should so inform SIAM Executive Director Jim Crowley by July 31, 2009. The Major Awards Committee will investigate all such cases and provide a decision as to whether to confer Fellowship under the start-up procedures. The decision of the Major Awards Committee is final. However, a negative decision will in no way impact a possible future nomination for Fellowship.
- Nominations and selections, beginning September 1, 2009.
The timeline below describes the nomination process for Fellows to be selected for the class of 2010. Nominations may only be submitted electronically using the Fellows webform which will be activated on September 1, 2009.
