The SIAM Activity Group on Nonlinear Waves and Coherent Structures (SIAG/NWCS) awards the Martin Kruskal Lecture every two years to one individual for a notable body of mathematics and contributions in the field of nonlinear waves and coherent structures. The award may be given either for a single notable achievement or for a collection of such achievements.

The candidate’s work must be a significant research contribution to the mathematical theory of nonlinear waves and coherent structures. This research area is broadly interpreted in the spirit of the SIAG/NWCS conferences.

- Nominator’s letter of recommendation for candidate
- Candidate's CV
- Two or three letters of support from experts in the field

The Martin Kruskal Lecture includes a certificate containing the award citation. As part of the award, the recipient will be invited to present a plenary lecture at the SIAM conference on Nonlinear Waves and Coherent Structures. SIAM will reimburse the recipient for reasonable travel expenses incurred in giving the lecture.

The prize will next be awarded in 2020 at the SIAM Conference on Nonlinear Waves and Coherent Structures.

The Chair of the SIAM Activity Group on Nonlinear Waves and Coherent Structures will present the award at the conference. An announcement of the award will appear in *SIAM News*.
