SIAM awards the prize with the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) for outstanding contributions to the development and use of mathematical and computational tools and methods for the solution of science and engineering problems.
The SIAM/ACM Prize in Computational Science and Engineering is awarded every two years by SIAM and the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) in the area of computational science to one individual or a group of individuals in recognition of outstanding contributions to the development and use of mathematical and computational tools and methods for the solution of science and engineering problems.
The prize may be awarded to any member of the scientific community who meets the general guideline of the prize description. The qualifying contribution(s) must be publicly available and may belong to any aspect of computational science in its broadest sense.
Congratulations to the 2023 recipients, the SUNDIALS Core Development Team! Read more about their accomplishments.

The award includes a monetary prize and a certificate. SIAM will reimburse the recipient for reasonable travel expenses incurred in attending the meeting.
The prize will next be awarded at the 2023 SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering.
The award will be presented at a major conference of SIAM or the ACM by the president of SIAM or ACM. The announcement of the award will appear in SIAM News, the SIAM website and appropriate electronic media.
The prize fund was established from charitable funds transferred from the SIAM Institute for the Advancement of Scientific Computing to SIAM for the purpose of endowing the prize fund.
The 2023 SIAM/ACM Prize in Computational Science and Engineering is awarded to the SUNDIALS core development team for innovative research and development of nonlinear and differential/algebraic equation solvers for high-performance computing that provides unique, critical capabilities in the scientific software ecosystem.
