Established in 2016, the prize is awarded to an individual in their early career for research contributions in the field of uncertainly quantification.
The SIAM Activity Group on Uncertainty Quantification Early Career Prize (SIAG/UQ Early Career Prize) is awarded every two years to one individual in their early career for outstanding research contributions in the field of uncertainty quantification in the three calendar years prior to the award year.
The candidate’s work must contain significant research contributions to the field of uncertainty quantification. 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 key paper must have been published no more than three years after the candidate received their Ph.D. The committee may consider exceptions to the three-years-from-Ph.D rule, for career interruptions or delays occurring, e.g., for child bearing, child rearing, or elder care.
For the 2026 award, the paper must have been published between the dates of January 1, 2023 – December 31, 2025. The candidate must have been awarded their Ph.D. no earlier than 2020 or may be a current graduate student.
The award will be presented at the 2024 SIAM Conference on Uncertainty Quantification (UQ24) in Trieste, Italy.
