SIAM Activity Group on Supercomputing Early Career Prize

Established in 2009, this prize is awarded to an individual in their early career for contributions in the field of algorithms research and development for parallel scientific and engineering computing.

Prize Description


Prize Description

The SIAM Activity Group on Supercomputing Early Career Prize (SIAG/SC Early Career Prize) is awarded every two years to one individual in their early career for outstanding research contributions in the field of algorithms research and development for parallel scientific and engineering computing in the three calendar years prior to the award year.


Eligibility Criteria

The candidate’s work must contain significant research contributions to algorithms for parallel computing in science and engineering. 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 or conference proceedings in the three calendar years prior to the award year. The key paper must have been published no more than three years after the candidate received their PhD. The committee may consider exceptions to the three-years-from-PhD 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 2022 award, the paper must have been published between the dates of January 1, 2019 – December 31, 2021. The candidate must have been awarded their PhD no earlier than 2016 or may be a current graduate student.
