Call for Submissions
SIAM Student Paper Prize
The SIAM Student Paper Prize is awarded every year to the student author(s) of the most outstanding paper(s) submitted to the SIAM Student Paper Competition. This award is based solely on the merit and content of the student’s contribution to the submitted paper. Up to three awards may be given.
Eligibility is restricted to students in good standing, who do not yet hold the degree of PhD on the application deadline. A student may submit only one paper for consideration in any year. The paper must have already been submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal in English. Priority will be given to papers that have been accepted for publication. Papers do not need to be published at the time of submission for the competition.
