The JPBM Communications Award is given annually to reward and encourage communicators who, on a sustained basis, bring mathematical ideas and information to non-mathematical audiences. The prize may be awarded in two categories: For Public Outreach and For Expository and Popular Books. Nominations can be submitted via the AMS website.

Named in honor of I. E. Block, a co-founder and the first managing director of SIAM, this lecture is open to the public at the SIAM Annual Meeting. It is intended to encourage public appreciation of applied mathematics and computational science by reaching out to the local community.

Established in 1959, the prize honors John von Neumann, a founder of modern computing. The lecture is awarded annually for distinguished contributions to applied mathematics and for the effective communication of these ideas to the community.

The prize was established in 1986 in memory of Richard C. DiPrima, who served SIAM for many years and in 1979–1980 as SIAM President. It aims to recognize an early career researcher in applied mathematics and is based on the doctoral dissertation.

The prize, established in 1985 and originally intended to be awarded periodically, is now awarded annually for contributions to the advancement of applied mathematics on the national or international level.

The Pioneer Prize is awarded every four years at the International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM) Congress to one individual for pioneering work introducing applied mathematical methods and scientific computing techniques to an industrial problem area or a new scientific field of applications. Nominations can be submitted via the ICIAM website.

This joint prize was established in 2002 to honor Sonia Kovalevsky and her work on the theory of differential equations. It is awarded to anyone in the scientific or engineering community whose work highlights the achievements of women in applied and computational mathematics. Nominations can be submitted via the AWM website.

This prize was created in 2013 to emphasize George Pólya’s legacy of communicating mathematics effectively. It joins two long-standing Pólya prizes SIAM has awarded in combinatorics and other fields beginning in 1969.

Through the generosity and inspiration of Gerald and Judith Porter, the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), American Mathematical Society (AMS), and SIAM offer this annual lecture at the Joint Mathematics Meetings. The lecture, first awarded in 2010, is given on a mathematical topic accessible to the broader community.

The prize recognizes students for outstanding solutions to real world math problems. It is awarded to two of the teams judged "Outstanding" in the Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM) administered annually by the Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP). Registration is accepted via the COMAP website.

The SIAM Outstanding Paper Prizes bring attention to papers published in SIAM journals. Three awards are made each year to the authors of papers deemed by SIAM journal editors-in-chief worthy of particular attention.

The SIAM Student Paper Prize is awarded annually to the student author(s) of the most outstanding paper(s) accepted by SIAM journals within the three years preceding the nomination deadline. Starting with the 2018 award, the focus of the prize is to recognize outstanding scholarship by students in SIAM journals.

The purpose of the SIAM Activity Group on Applied Mathematics Education is to advance the development and practice of educational programs, courses, and resources in applied mathematics.

SIAM Review (SIREV) consists of five sections, all containing articles of broad interest. A subscription to SIAM Review is provided free when you become a SIAM member.
