On Monday September 10th, the ICIAM Council announced the winners of the 2019 ICIAM Prizes. These prizes will be awarded during the Opening Ceremony of the ICIAM 2019 congress. The prize winners are the following one.
ICIAM Collatz PrizeThe Collatz Prize was established to provide international recognition to individual scientists under 42 years of age for outstanding work on industrial and applied mathematics. A recipient’s 42nd birthday must not occur before 1 January of the year in which the prize is presented. It was created on the initiative of GAMM (Gesellschaft für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik), and first awarded in 1999. Carrying a cash award of USD 5000, the Collatz Prize is presently funded by GAMM.
The 2019 ICIAM Collatz Prize is awarded to Siddharta Mishra (Department of Mathematics, ETH Zürich, Switzerland) for his breakthrough contributions that skillfully combine modelling of real world problems and rigorous mathematical analysis with the development of efficient and accurate numerical schemes and high performance computing.

The Lagrange Prize was established to provide international recognition to individual mathematicians who have made an exceptional contribution to applied mathematics throughout their careers. It was created on the initiative of SMAI (Société de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles), SEMA (Sociedad Española de Matemática Aplicada) and SIMAI (Società Italiana di Matematica Applicata e Industriale) and first awarded in 1999. Carrying a cash award of USD 5000, the Lagrange Prize is presently funded by the four member societies SBMAC, SMAI, SEMA and SIMAI.
ICIAM Lagrange Prize
The 2019 ICIAM Lagrange Prize is awarded to George Papanicolaou for his brilliant use of mathematics to solve important problems in science and engineering; in particular, problems involving inhomogeneity, wave propagation, random media, diffusion, scattering, focusing, imaging, and finance.

The Pioneer Prize was established for pioneering work introducing applied mathematical methods and scientific computing techniques to an industrial problem area or a new scientific field of applications. It was created on the initiative of SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics), and was first awarded in 1999. Carrying a cash award of USD 5000, the Pioneer Prize is presently funded by SIAM.
ICIAM Pioneer Prize
The 2019 ICIAM Pioneer Prize is awarded to Yvon Maday (Sorbonne University, Paris, France) in recognition of his leading role in the introduction of powerful methods for numerical simulation, such as spectral methods, reduced order modeling, domain decomposition, models and simulation in medical sciences, fluid-structure interaction, and ab-initio chemistry. Several of his works helped in the launching of start-ups and are intensively used in industry. (Read more)

ICIAM Su Buchin Prize
Established in 2003 to provide international recognition of an outstanding contribution by an individual in the application of mathematics to emerging economies and human development, in particular at the economic and cultural level in developing countries. This includes efforts to improve mathematical research and teaching in those countries. It was created on the initiative of CSIAM (China Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics), and was first awarded in 2007. Carrying a cash award of USD 5000, the Su Buchin Prize is presently funded by CSIAM.
The 2019 ICIAM Su Buchin Prize is awarded to Giulia Di Nunno, for her long-lasting record of actively and efficiently encouraging top-level mathematical research and education in developing African countries. (Read more)
