This prize is solely based on the merit and content of the student's contribution to the submitted paper. The purpose of the Student Paper Prizes is to recognize outstanding scholarship by students in applied mathematics or scientific computing. Each recipient of the EASIAM Student Paper Prize shall receive a framed certificate and a cash prize of US$300. Normally, up to three awards will be bestowed.
However, this year, up to five awards will be bestowed due to the fact that none was bestowed last year.
