The SIAM Activity Group on Partial Differential Equations Best Paper Prize (SIAG/APDE Best Paper Prize) includes a certificate containing the award citation. If the selected paper has multiple authors, each author will receive a certificate. At least one of the awardees is invited to attend the award ceremony and to present the paper as a plenary lecture at the meeting.
The prize will next be awarded at the 2021 SIAM Conference on Analysis of Partial Differential Equations.
The Chair of the SIAM Activity Group on Analysis of Partial Differential Equations will present the award to the recipient(s). An announcement of the award recipient(s) and the winning article will appear in SIAM News.
