The SIAG/OPT Best Paper Prize includes a certificate containing the citation. If the selected paper has multiple authors, each author will receive a certificate. As part of the award, the recipient will be invited to give a brief plenary talk at the conference. SIAM will reimburse the recipient for reasonable travel expenses incurred in attending the conference to receive the award and give the talk.
The prize will next be awarded in 2023 at the SIAM Conference on Optimization.
The Chair of the SIAM Activity Group on Optimization will announce the award and present the award to the recipient(s) who is present. An announcement of the award recipient(s) will appear in SIAM News and the activity group's newsletter.
