Professor Barbara Keyfitz, President of the International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM), has issued a call for nominations for five prizes it will award at its 8th International Congress in Beijing in August 2015.
The prizes are:
- Collatz Prize, which recognises outstanding work on industrial and applied mathematics by an individual under 42 years of age;
- Lagrange Prize, which recognises an exceptional contribution to applied mathematics throughout a career;
- Maxwell Prize, which recognises originality in applied mathematics;
- Pioneer Prize, which recognises pioneering work introducing applied mathematical methods and scientific computing techniques to an industrial problem area or a new scientific field of applications;
- Su Buchin Prize, which recognises an outstanding contribution in the application of mathematics to emerging economies and human development, in particular at the economic and cultural level in developing countries (including efforts to improve mathematical research and teaching in those countries).
ICIAM is a worldwide organisation for professional applied mathematics societies, and for other societies with a significant interest in industrial or applied mathematics.This will be the fifth time the Collatz, Lagrange, Maxwell and Pioneer Prizes have been awarded, and the third time for the Su Buchin Prize1.
Nominations are welcome from every part of the world. The deadline for nominations is 31 October 2013. Details on how to provide a nomination are provided in an ICIAM flyer.
