Call for Nominations
George Pólya Prize in Combinatorics
SIAM will present the first award of the George Pólya Prize in Combinatorics at the 2016 SIAM Annual Meeting (AN16), to be held July 11–15, 2016, in Boston, Massachusetts.
The George Pólya Prize in Combinatorics honors the memory of George Pólya and is awarded every four years for a notable application of combinatorial theory. SIAM has awarded the George Pólya Prize quadrennially since 1969 for a notable contribution in combinatorics. In 2013, Pólya Prizes in two other categories of interest to George Pólya were established, and the title of this prize was clarified.
There are no restrictions except that the prize is broadly intended to recognize specific recent work. Strong preference will be given to selecting one person as the prize winner.
Description of Award
The award will consist of an engraved medal and a total cash prize of $10,000. Travel expenses to the award ceremony will be provided by the prize fund.
Nominations should be sent to polya_prize at siam.org by October 15, 2015. Attach a letter of nomination, including a description of the contribution, a CV of the candidate, and letters of support from two or three experts (not more than three letters). Letters should be addressed to:
