The SIAM Activity Group on Computational Science and Engineering Best Paper Prize (SIAG/CSE Best Paper Prize) is awarded every two years to the author(s) of the best paper, as determined by the prize committee, on the development and use of mathematical and computational tools and methods for solving problems that may arise in broad areas of science, engineering, technology, and society. The prize recognizes a paper that makes an outstanding and potentially long-lasting contribution to the field. The selection criteria emphasize multidisciplinary work opening up new areas of research, and potential broad impact, in addition to novelty, creativity, and overall scientific advancement and quality.
The qualifying paper must be published in English, in a peer-reviewed journal with a publication date in the four calendar years preceding the year prior to the year of the SIAG/CSE conference. To promote the diversity and inclusiveness of the CSE community, nominations of papers co-authored by women and minorities are encouraged.
