Prize Description


Prize Description

The SIAM Activity Group on Applied and Computational Discrete Algorithms Early Career Prize (SIAG/ACDA Early Career Prize) is awarded every two years to an outstanding early career researcher in the field of Applied and Computational Discrete Algorithms (ACDA) for distinguished contributions to the field in the six calendar years prior to the award year.


Eligibility Criteria

The award recognizes an individual who has made outstanding, influential, and potentially long-lasting contributions to the field of ACDA within six years of receiving the PhD or equivalent degree as of January 1 of the award year. At least one of the papers containing this work must be published in English in a peer-reviewed journal or conference proceedings. The committee may consider exceptions to the six-year rule, for career interruptions or delays occurring, e.g., for child-bearing, child-rearing, or elder care. The recipient must be a member of the SIAG/ACDA at the time of their nomination; the nominator need not be a member of SIAG/ACDA. The award can be received only once in a lifetime.

For the 2023 award, the candidate must have been awarded their PhD no earlier than 2017.
