SIAM Fellows Program

The SIAM Council recently ratified some changes to the Fellows Program and we will accept 2016 Fellow nominations starting early September. Beginning with the 2016 round of nominations, the following changes have been made:

  1. A nominee must have been a SIAM member for 7 of the past 10 years (84 of the past 120 months).
  2. A nomination must contain the support of three nominators, a citation of 20 words or less, a CV of no more than four pages, one letter of nomination (written by one or more of the nominators), and two letters of recommendation (written by people who are not nominators). The letters of nomination and recommendation must be no longer than two pages.

If you have a rollover nomination from a previous year, your nomination will still be considered by the Fellows Selection Committee, but it is encouraged (though not required) that you revise the nomination to conform to the new standards.


We are pleased to announce the SIAM Fellows Class of 2015. More information on the new class of selected Fellows can be found at SIAM Connect.

SIAM membership approved the SIAM Fellows Program in 2008 to designate as Fellows of the Society certain members who have made outstanding contributions to fields served by SIAM.
