created 21  Sep  2011

The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) established the annual Sonia Kovalevsky Lecture to highlight significant contributions of women to applied or computational mathematics. This lecture is given annually at the SIAM Annual Meeting. In 2012, the Sonia Kovalevsky Lecture will be presented at the SIAM Annual Meeting in Minneapolis, MN. The lectureship may be awarded to anyone in the scientific or engineering community whose work highlights the achievements of women in applied or computational mathematics.

This is a jointly awarded prize (AWM-SIAM).

By agreement, AWM and SIAM pay for the winner's expenses to travel to the SIAM meeting and also local expenses. There is no cash award. The Department of Energy is the sponsor covering expenses for this lecture series.
