SIAG/Linear Algebra Early Career Prize
The SIAM Activity Group on Linear Algebra Early Career Prize, established in 2017, is awarded to one outstanding early career researcher in the field of applicable linear algebra, for distinguished contributions to the field within six (6) years of receiving the PhD or equivalent degree as of January 1 of the year of the award.
The SIAG/LA will present the award at the SIAM Conference on Applied Linear Algebra (LA18), to be held May 4-8, 2018, in Hong Kong.
The candidate's work must be a significant research contribution to the field of applicable linear algebra. The award recognizes an individual who has made outstanding, influential, and potentially long-lasting contributions to applicable linear algebra within six (6) years of receiving the PhD or equivalent degree as of January 1 of the year of the award. For the 2018 award, the candidate must have been awarded their PhD no earlier than January 1, 2012, and no later than the nomination deadline.
The contribution(s) for which the award is made must be publicly available and may belong to any aspect of applicable linear algebra in its broadest sense. The committee may consider exceptions to the six-year rule, for career interruptions or delays occurring, e.g., for child bearing, child rearing, or elder care. Graduate students are not eligible for this award. The award can be received only once in a lifetime.
