Nominations Solicited for Blackwell-Tapia Prize

Nominations are solicited for the sixth Blackwell–Tapia Prize, which will be awarded at a conference to be held at the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) on November 9–10, 2012.

Nominees should be active mathematical scientists who have (1) contributed and continue to contribute significantly to research in their fields of expertise; and (2) served as role models for mathematical scientists and students from underrepresented minority groups or contributed in other significant ways to addressing the problem of the underrepresentation of minorities in mathematics. Nominations should include a letter addressing both eligibility requirements, along with a CV of the nominee. Additional letters supporting the nomination can be included, but are not required. Nominations should be sent via e-mail to Robert Megginson at meggin@umich.edu by February 12, 2012. Read the rest of this entry »

Recipients named for the Fifth Annual SIAM Student Chapter Certificate of Recognition

SIAM Student Chapter Certificates of Recognition have been awarded to students who made outstanding contributions to their SIAM student chapters during the 2010 – 2010 academic year. This program recognizes the importance of student contributions in creating and sustaining exciting chapters, acknowledges students’ efforts within the greater SIAM community, and provides a noteworthy commendation for students to add to their records for career building. SIAM congratulates all of the recipients and thanks them for their contributions to the development and growth of SIAM student chapters. Click here to see photos of recipients.

SIAM is picking its next Class of Fellows!

Help us identify one. Or two!

Recognizing exemplary applied mathematics is perhaps as important as studying it. Which is why SIAM created the Fellows program to acknowledge individuals who help advance the field with outstanding research and achievement.

Each year since the program was approved in 2008, SIAM designates as Fellows of the Society certain members who have made noteworthy contributions to the fields of applied mathematics and computational science. Fellowship is an honorific designation, which is conferred on deserving individuals in order to recognize exceptional talent. While such recognition is vital to encourage individual accomplishments, it also aids in promoting applied mathematics in the larger community.

There will be up to 34 Fellows selected for the 2011 Class. Nomination of SIAM Fellows is now an ongoing process, and we would like to encourage people to submit nominations. Criteria for selection of fellows are excellence in research, industrial work (that might or might not involve traditional research), and/or educational or other activities directly related to the goals of SIAM.

Help SIAM identify deserving members by making your nominations. It’s easier than ever! As requested by users and the SIAM Board and Council, we have simplified the process of nomination and you’ll see those changes on the fellows nomination page of our website.

If you have already made your submission, your proposition should not be affected by the new procedure.

Each SIAM member can nominate up to two individuals for fellowship in a given year. Please read the guidelines here: http://www.siam.org/prizes/fellows/nomination.php

Use the Nomination website to submit required information: http://nominatefellows.siam.org/Pages/Home.aspx

All inductees to the 2011 Class of SIAM Fellows will be acknowledged at the SIAM/CAIMS joint awards luncheon held next July at ICIAM 2011 in Vancouver, Canada.
