Established in 2015, the prize is awarded to an individual in their early career for research contributions to the field of imaging science.
The SIAM Activity Group on Imaging Sciences Early Career Prize (SIAG/IS Early Career Prize) is awarded every two years to one individual in their early career, in the field of imaging science, for distinguished contributions to the field in the three calendar years prior to the award year.
The candidate’s work must contain significant research contributions to the field of imaging science. 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 candidate must be a graduate student or have obtained their PhD or equivalent degree within the five calendar years prior to the award year. The committee may consider exceptions to the five years-from PhD rule, for career interruptions or delays occurring, e.g., for child bearing, child rearing, or elder care.
For the 2020 award, the paper must have been published between the dates of January 1, 2017 – December 31, 2019. The candidate must have been awarded their PhD no earlier than 2015.
The SIAG/IS Best Paper Prize will be awarded at IS20 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
