This year’s deadline for nominating Fellows has been pushed forward a few weeks so that the Fellows Selection Committee may have sufficient time to review all nomination packages. The new deadline for nominations for the SIAM Fellows Class of 2019 is Wednesday, October 17, 2018.
In addition, new rules have been put in place regarding the Fellows nomination packages. Fellows nomination packages include a curriculum vitae of at most four pages; a letter of nomination, typically written by the nominators, of at most two pages; and exactly two letters of recommendation, of at most two pages each. In order to ensure consistency among nomination packages, additional formatting guidelines will be instituted.
All Fellows nomination packages must conform to the following standards:
- Arial, Courier New, Calibri, Cambria, Times New Roman, & Computer Modern
- Minimum spacing should be single (6 lines per inch maximum)
- All margins should be 1 inch (2.54cm)
These new rules will apply to all new nominations submitted after April 2018. Rollover nominations from 2017 and 2018 are not required to be updated.
Nominations for the SIAM Fellows Class of 2019 are open, and can be submitted here.
Please contact Fellows Coordinator Maggie Hohenadel with any questions regarding the Fellows Program and the nominations process.
