The SIAG on Imaging Science Paper Prize (SIAG/IS Prize), established in 2010, will be awarded to the authors of the best paper, as determined by the prize committee, on mathematical and computational aspects of imaging.  Imaging is broadly interpreted to include: image formation, inverse problems in imaging, image processing, image analysis, image interpretation and understanding, computer graphics, and visualization.

The SIAG on Imaging Science (SIAG/IS) will present the award at the SIAM Conference on Imaging Science (IS14), to be held May 12-14, 2014, at Hong Kong Baptist University in Hong Kong.
