The prize of £1,000 and a silver medal is awarded biennially to a post-graduate researcher under the age of 40 who submits the paper which contributes most to research in the field of numerical methods in engineering. Papers to be judged Papers must either be submitted in a form suitable for publication or already have been published after 30 June 2004 in one of the following journals: the International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering, Communications in Numerical Methods in Engineering, the International Journal for Numerical Methods in Fluids, and the International Journal for Numerical and Analytical Methods in Geomechanics or in the ICE Proceedings. All papers must be submitted with a covering letter from the competitor's supervisor or head of department. The letter should indicate willingness to allow the prize to be awarded to the competitor as a single author, especially in the case of multiple authorship.
