SIAM fosters the development of applied mathematical and computational methodologies needed in various application areas. Applied mathematics, in partnership with computational science, is essential in solving many real-world problems. Through publications, research and community, the mission of SIAM is to build cooperation between mathematics and the worlds of science and technology.
George Pólya Prize in Applied Combinatorics
Awarded every four years to an individual for significant and recent contributions to applications of combinatorics. It is a modification of the older George Pólya Prize in Combinatorics, originally established in 1969 with funds from the estate of Stella Pólya. The prize will be awarded for the first time in 2020. The monetary award is $10,000 and the prize will be awarded at 2020 SIAM Annual Meeting (AN20).
Richard C. DiPrima Prize
Awarded every two years to one early career researcher who has done outstanding research in applied mathematics and who has completed their doctoral dissertation and all other requirements for their doctorate (or equivalent degree) during the period three years to one year prior to the award date. Selection is based on the dissertation. The monetary award is $2,000 and the prize will be awarded at AN20. Learn more about this prize.
Theodore von Kármán Prize
Awarded every five years for a notable application of mathematics to mechanics and/or the engineering sciences made during the five to 10 years preceding the award. The prize may be awarded for a significant achievement by one individual or a significant body of work that could have been produced by multiple contributors. Due to ICIAM 2019, this year’s award has been postponed to 2020. The monetary award is $2,000 and the recipient is requested to present a lecture at AN20. Learn more about this prize.
W. T. and Idalia Reid Prize
Awarded every year to one individual for research in, or other contributions to, the broadly defined areas of differential equations and control theory, for a single notable achievement or for a collection of notable achievements. The monetary award is $10,000 and the recipient is requested to present a lecture at AN20. Learn more about this prize.
