This prize was created in 2013 to emphasize George Pólya’s legacy of communicating mathematics effectively. It joins two long-standing Pólya prizes SIAM has awarded in combinatorics and other fields beginning in 1969.

Established in 1998 in memory of Ralph E. Kleinman, the prize recognizes contributions that bridge the gap between high-level mathematics and engineering problems. The award is based on the quality and impact of the mathematics.

Established in 2016, the prize is awarded to an individual in their early career for research contributions to the field of algebraic geometry and its applications.

Established in 2018, the prize is awarded to an early career researcher for recent research contributions in the field of geometric design and processing.

This joint prize was established in 2002 to honor Sonia Kovalevsky and her work on the theory of differential equations. It is awarded to anyone in the scientific or engineering community whose work highlights the achievements of women in applied and computational mathematics. Nominations can be submitted via the AWM website.

The SIAM Student Paper Prize is awarded annually to the student author(s) of the most outstanding paper(s) accepted by SIAM journals within the three years preceding the nomination deadline. Starting with the 2018 award, the focus of the prize is to recognize outstanding scholarship by students in SIAM journals.

Established in 1967, the prize honors George David Birkhoff (1884-1944), who served as the American Mathematical Society (AMS) President during 1925-1926. The prize is awarded every three years by SIAM and AMS for an outstanding contribution to applied mathematics. Nominations can be submitted via the AMS website.

The prize was established in 1986 in memory of Richard C. DiPrima, who served SIAM for many years and in 1979–1980 as SIAM President. It aims to recognize an early career researcher in applied mathematics and is based on the doctoral dissertation.

Established in 1967, the prize honors Norbert Wiener, a founder of the field of cybernetics. The prize is awarded every three years by SIAM and the American Mathematical Society (AMS) for an outstanding contribution to applied mathematics. Nominations can be submitted via the AMS website.

The George Pólya Prize in Mathematics was established in 1992 as an extension into other fields of the George Pólya Prize in Combinatorics. It is awarded in areas of interest to George Pólya not covered by SIAM’s other Pólya Prizes.

The Pioneer Prize is awarded every four years at the International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM) Congress to one individual for pioneering work introducing applied mathematical methods and scientific computing techniques to an industrial problem area or a new scientific field of applications. Nominations can be submitted via the ICIAM website.

Through the generosity and inspiration of Gerald and Judith Porter, the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), American Mathematical Society (AMS), and SIAM offer this annual lecture at the Joint Mathematics Meetings. The lecture, first awarded in 2010, is given on a mathematical topic accessible to the broader community.

Named in honor of I. E. Block, a co-founder and the first managing director of SIAM, this lecture is open to the public at the SIAM Annual Meeting. It is intended to encourage public appreciation of applied mathematics and computational science by reaching out to the local community.

Established in 1959, the prize honors John von Neumann, a founder of modern computing. The prize is awarded annually for distinguished contributions to applied mathematics and for the effective communication of these ideas to the community.

The JPBM Communications Award is given annually to reward and encourage communicators who, on a sustained basis, bring mathematical ideas and information to non-mathematical audiences. The prize may be awarded in two categories: For Public Outreach and For Expository and Popular Books. Nominations can be submitted via the AMS website.

The MAA-SIAM-AMS Hrabowski-Gates-Tapia-McBay (HGTM) Lecture is named after four influential scientists of color: Freeman Hrabowski, President of the University of Maryland at Baltimore County; James S. Gates, University of Maryland, College Park; Richard Tapia, Rice University; and Shirley McBay, Founder and former President of Quality Education for Minorities. This lecture started in 2016 as an activity of the Mathematical Association of America’s Committee on Minority Participation and became a jointly sponsored MAA-SIAM-AMS event in 2018.

The prize recognizes students for outstanding solutions to real world math problems. It is awarded to six of the teams judged "Outstanding" in the Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM) administered annually by the Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP). Registration is accepted via the COMAP website.

The SIAM Outstanding Paper Prize is not currently active. For the 20 years before it was discontinued in 2019, the SIAM Outstanding Paper Prizes brought attention to papers published in SIAM journals. Three awards were made each year to the authors of papers deemed by SIAM journal editors-in-chief worthy of particular attention.

The prize, established in 1985 and originally intended to be awarded periodically, is now awarded annually for contributions to the advancement of applied mathematics on the national or international level.

This group is concerned with the mathematical and computational issues that arise in generating and processing geometric information for various engineering applications, such as mechanical design, process planning, and manufacturing. The scope of the group's activities encompasses a wide spectrum of scientific, technological, and other skills, ranging from rigorous mathematics to the subjective aesthetics of shape.

The purpose of this activity group is to bring together researchers who use algebraic geometry in industrial and applied mathematics. "Algebraic geometry" is interpreted broadly to include at least: algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, noncommutative algebra, symbolic and numeric computation, algebraic and geometric combinatorics, representation theory, and algebraic topology.

SIAM Journal on Applied Algebra and Geometry (SIAGA) journal publishes research articles of exceptional quality on the development of algebraic, geometric, and topological methods with a strong connection to applications. Mathematical areas covered include algebraic geometry, algebraic and topological combinatorics, algebraic topology, commutative and noncommutative algebra, convex and discrete geometry, differential geometry, multilinear and tensor algebra, number theory, representation theory, symbolic and numerical computation.
