Established in 2016, the prize is awarded to a post-PhD early career researcher for recent research contributions in the field of computational science and engineering.
The SIAM Activity Group on Computational Science and Engineering Early Career Prize (SIAG/CSE Early Career Prize) is awarded every two years to one post-Ph.D. early career researcher in the field of computational science and engineering for outstanding, influential, and potentially long-lasting contributions to the field within seven years of receiving the Ph.D. or equivalent degree as of January 1 of the award year. The contributions must be contained in a paper or papers published in English in peer-reviewed journals.
The candidate’s work must contain significant research contributions to the development and use of mathematical and computational tools and methods for the solution of scientific and engineering problems. The qualifying contribution(s) for which the award is made must be publicly available and may belong to any aspect of computational science and engineering in its broadest sense. The committee may consider exceptions to the seven-years-from Ph.D. rule, for career interruptions or delays occurring, e.g., for child bearing, child rearing, or elder care.
For the 2025 award, the candidate must have been awarded their Ph.D. no earlier than January 1, 2018, and no later than the nomination deadline. Current graduate students are not eligible for this prize.
