Lagrange Prize - Call for nominations 2021


Call for nomination: Lagrange Prize in Continuous Optimization

The Lagrange Prize in Continuous Optimization will be awarded jointly by SIAM and the Mathematical Optimization Society (MOS) at the 2021 SIAM Annual Meeting. We are now accepting nominations, see https://evoq-eval.siam.org/prizes-recognition/joint-prizes/detail/lagrange-prize-in-continuous-optimization

The Lagrange Prize in Continuous Optimization is awarded ever three years for an outstanding contribution in the area of continuous optimization published in the six calendar years prior to the award year. The MOS administers the prize and it is awarded jointly by MOS and SIAM.

Eligibility Criteria:
The award is based primarily on the work's mathematical quality, significance, and originality. Clarity and excellence of the exposition and the value of the work in practical applications may be considered as secondary attributes. The extended period of six years reflects the fact that the value of fundamental work cannot always be immediately assessed.

The work must have been published as the final publication of the main result(s) within the six calendar years preceding the award year. The work should be published as an article in a peer-reviewed journal, or other peer-reviewed publication, intended to publish final papers only; or as a monograph publishing original results.

For the 2021 award, the work must have been published between the dates of January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2020.

Nomination Deadline: October 15, 2020

Selection Committee:

  • Sven Leyffer (Chair), Argonne National Laboratory
  • Xiaojun Chen, Hong Kong Polytechnic University
  • Etienne de Klerk, University of Tilberg, The Netherlands
  • Philip Gill, University of California San Diego
