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 recipient's work must be a distinguished research contribution to imaging science, with significant publications within the three calendar years prior to the year of the award. The recipient must be a graduate student or have obtained a PhD or equivalent degree within the five calendar years prior to the year of the award. The committee may consider exceptions to the five-year rule, for career interruptions or delays occurring, e.g., for childbearing, child rearing, or elder care. The award can be received only once in a lifetime.
For the 2024 award, the paper must have been published between the dates of January 1, 2020 – December 31, 2023. The candidate must have been awarded their PhD no earlier than 2019.
