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.
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.
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.
Congratulations to the 2020 winner, Edgar Solomonik, who received the award at PP20 in Seattle, Washington. Learn more about his accomplishments.

The SIAG/SC Early Career Prize includes a certificate containing the citation. As part of the award, the recipient will be invited to give a brief plenary talk at the SIAM Conference on Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing. SIAM will reimburse the recipient for reasonable travel expenses incurred in attending the award ceremony and giving the lecture.
The prize will next be awarded in 2022 at the SIAM Conference on Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing.
The Chair of the SIAM Activity Group on Supercomputing and the Chair of the Prize Committee will announce the award at the SIAM Conference on Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing and present the award to the recipient. An announcement of the award will appear in SIAM News, and on the activity group's website and newsletter.
