Nominations are now open for the Abel Prize 2013. The Abel Prize is awarded annually by Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters “for outstanding scientific work in the field of mathematics” and probably has a greater claim to be the ‘mathematical equivalent of the Nobel Prize‘ than does the, perhaps better known, Fields Medal.

The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters hereby calls for nominations for the Abel Prize 2013, and invite you (or your society or institution) to nominate candidate(s). Your nomination should be accompanied by a description of the work and impact of the nominee/nominees, together with names of distinguished specialists in the field of the nominee/nominees who can be contacted for an independent opinion.

Further details are given in the nomination guidelines.
