The James H. Wilkinson Prize in Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing is awarded every four years to one individual for research in, or other contributions to, numerical analysis and scientific computing during the six years preceding the award year. The purpose of the prize is to stimulate early career contributors and to help them in their careers.

The candidate must have no more than 12 years (full time equivalent) of involvement in mathematics since receiving their PhD at the award date, allowing for breaks in continuity. The prize committee can make exceptions, if in their opinion the candidate is at an equivalent stage in their career. The qualifying contribution must have been published within the six years preceding the award year.

For the 2021 award, the candidate must have received their PhD no earlier than January 1, 2009. The qualifying contribution must have been published within the calendar years 2015 – 2020.

- Nominator’s letter of recommendation for candidate
- Candidate’s CV
- Bibliographic citation for candidate’s key contributing paper
- Two or three letters of support from experts in the field

The James H. Wilkinson Prize in Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing includes a $2,000 monetary award and a certificate. A lecture is requested and will be publicized in meeting announcements. SIAM will reimburse the recipient for reasonable travel expenses incurred in attending the award ceremony.

The James H. Wilkinson Prize in Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing will next be given at the 2021 SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering.

The prize will be presented by the SIAM President at the Prizes and Awards Luncheon. The announcement of the award will appear in *SIAM News*, the SIAM website, and appropriate electronic media.
