SIAM Activity Group on Algebraic Geometry Early Career Prize

Established in 2016, the prize is awarded to an individual in their early career for research contributions to the field of algebraic geometry and its applications.

Next Call for Nominations Opens: May 1, 2022

Prize Description


Prize Description

The SIAM Activity Group on Algebraic Geometry Early Career Prize (SI(AG)2 Early Career Prize) is awarded every two years to one outstanding early career researcher in the field of algebraic geometry and its applications for distinguished contributions to the field in the three calendar years prior to the year of the award. The contributions must be contained in a paper or papers in English in peer-reviewed journals.


Eligibility Criteria

The research must contain significant contributions to algebraic geometry and its applications. One key paper must be cited as evidence of the contributions, though a body of papers may be discussed in the nomination. The qualifying key paper must have been published in English in a peer-reviewed journal in the three calendar years prior to the award year. The key paper must have been published no more than three years after the candidate received their PhD. The committee may consider exceptions to the three-years-from-PhD rule, for career interruptions or delays occurring, e.g., for child bearing, child rearing, or elder care.

For the 2021 award, the paper must have been published between the dates of January 1, 2018 - December 31, 2020. The candidate must have received their PhD no earlier than 2015 or may be a current graduate student.
