The SDM/IBM Early Career Data Mining Researcher Award for Excellence in
Data Analytics seeks to recognize one individual (no runner up/ honorable
mention) who has made outstanding, influential, and lasting contributions
in the field of data analysis and who will be within 10 years of having
received their PhD degree as of the calendar year prior to the year of the
award. For example, an award winner in 2018 should have received their PhD
no earlier than 2007 from their alma mater.

A candidate may be nominated by any member of the community. An individual
may nominate at most one candidate for this award. Nominations must be
submitted to the Award Selection Committee Chair by email with “SDM/IBM

file) should contain the following:
1 Name/email of nominator (self-nominations are not permitted).
2 Name/email of candidate being nominated.
3 A statement by the nominator (maximum of 500 words) as to why the nominee
is highly deserving of the award. Note that since the award is for
outstanding contributions, the statement and supporting letters should

significant. The nomination should also list the names and email addresses
of up to 3 persons who will provide letters supporting the nomination.
4 CV of the nominee (the CV must clearly indicate date of degree received)
