Established in 2019, the prize is awarded every two years to an early career researcher for recent contributions in the field of partial differential equations.
The SIAM Activity Group on Analysis of Partial Differential Equations Early Career Prize (SIAG/APDE Early Career Prize) is awarded every two years to an early career researcher who has made outstanding, influential, and potentially long-lasting contributions within six years of receiving the PhD or equivalent degree as of January 1 of the award year. At least one of the papers containing this work must be published in English in a peer-reviewed journal or conference proceedings.
The contributions for which the award is made may belong to any aspect of the field of partial differential equations.
The committee may consider exceptions to the six-year 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 2021 award, the candidate must have been awarded their PhD no earlier than January 1, 2015 and no later than the nomination deadline.
