Call for Nominations for the Fifth Stephen Smale Prize

The fifth Stephen Smale Prize will be awarded at the Foundations of Computational Mathematics (FoCM) Conference in Paris, France from June 12-21, 2023. The Smale Prize aims to recognize major achievements that further the understanding of the connections between mathematics and computation, including the interfaces between pure and applied mathematics, numerical analysis, and computer science.

To be eligible for the prize, candidates must be in their early to mid-career, i.e., removed typically by at most ten years from their (first) doctoral degrees by June 12, 2023 (the first day of the FoCM meeting). Eligible candidates should be nominated via email to the chair of FoCM, Albert Cohen ([email protected]), no later than September 11, 2022. 

Each nomination (self-nominations excluded) should be accompanied by a brief supporting letter, the nominee's CV, and at least three letters of recommendation. The recipient of the prize will be expected to deliver a plenary lecture at the FOCM Conference. A written version of this lecture (tagged as the Smale Prize Lecture) will be included in the volume of plenary talks.

Further details about the Smale Prize are available online.
