If you’d like to nominate a candidate as a 2016 SIAM Fellow, please review the eligibility criteria and nomination procedures below.
A complete nomination package shall consist of:
- A nomination supported by 3 current non-student members of SIAM. Each current non-student member may make up to two nominations per year. Members of the Fellows Selection Committee and Major Awards Committee are not eligible to serve as nominators.
- A citation of approximately 20 words. The citation is intended for use if the nominee is selected as a Fellow. Click here to see citations of current Fellows.
- A curriculum vitae of at most 4 pages. It is suggested that the vitae include selected publications and patents.
- 1 to 3 letters of recommendation. These letters may be written by anyone, including nominators and non-members. Each letter must contain the name and affiliation of the writer.
One of the three nominators must initiate the nomination by logging into the SIAM Fellows nomination website, uploading the minimum 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 FellowNominations@siam.org. 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.
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. It is important that the nomination package describes the nominee's most significant contributions and the impact of these contributions.
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.
