Nomination Procedures

If you’d like to nominate a candidate for SIAM Fellow, please review the eligibility, criteria, and nomination procedures below.

A complete nomination package shall consist of:

One of the three nominators must initiate the nomination by logging into the SIAM Fellows nomination website, uploading the required materials, and clicking "Submit." Once the nomination has been submitted, the other two nominators must log in and verify their support of the nomination by clicking "I Support This Nomination." Any of the three nominators may then add to or edit the nomination package until the close of nominations.

Materials may be added directly to the nomination package via the SIAM Fellows nomination website or sent by email to If sending materials by email, please include the name of the nominee in the subject line. Materials may be emailed as attachments (.pdf, .docx, or .doc) or as text in the body of the message. Letters of recommendation uploaded by a nominator can only be viewed by that nominator. Letters of recommendation uploaded by SIAM administration cannot be viewed by any of the nominators. CVs and letters of nomination can be viewed by any of the nominators, regardless of the uploader.

The Fellows Selection Committee will rely on the information in the curriculum vitae and on the detailed insight about a nominee's professional accomplishments provided by the letters of recommendation. Please see the selection criteria page and the advice for letter writers page for more detailed guidelines regarding the content of a nomination.

If a candidate is not selected in the year of submission, the nomination will automatically be considered again the following year. If a nomination package is incomplete upon the close of nominations, it will be retained in the system and may be completed at a future date for consideration in a subsequent year. Any nomination that satisfies all requirements will remain valid for three consecutive years.
