Prize Description

Prize Description

The SIAM Activity Group on Geometric Design Early Career Prize (SIAG/GD Early Career Prize) is awarded every two years to an early career researcher who has made outstanding, influential, and potentially long-lasting contributions within five 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.

Eligibility Criteria

The contributions for which the award is made may belong to any aspect of geometric design in its broadest sense. This includes significant research contributions to the mathematical and computational issues that arise in generating and processing geometric information, influential applications of geometry in industry, and exceptional achievements regarding the popularization of geometric design to the general public.

The committee may consider exceptions to the five-year rule, for career interruptions or delays occurring, e.g., for child bearing, child rearing, or elder care. 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 January 1, 2018 and no later than the nomination deadline. 

Required Materials

  • Nominator’s letter of recommendation for candidate
