Call for Nominations for 2019 ICIAM Prizes

The International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM) Prize Committee calls for nominations for the ICIAM prizes (the Collatz Prize, the Lagrange Prize, the Maxwell Prize, the Pioneer Prize, the Su Buchin Prize, and the Olga Taussky-Todd Lecture) to be awarded in 2019. Each ICIAM Prize is truly international and has its own special character. We therefore welcome nominations from every part of the world. A nomination should consider the specifications for a particular prize and contain the following information:

  • Full name and address of nominee
  • Web home page, if applicable
  • Justification for nomination; cite nominator’s reason for considering candidate to be deserving, including explanations of the scientific and practical influence of the candidate’s work and publications.
  • Proposed citation – a concise statement about the outstanding contribution in fewer than 250 words
  • CV of the nominee
  • Two-three letters of support from experts in the field and/or two-three names of experts to be consulted by the Prize Committee
  • Name and contact details of the nominator

Nominations should be made electronically through the website. The deadline for nominations is July 15th, 2017, with exception to the Olga Taussky-Todd Lecture, which has a deadline of September 30, 2017.
