Levi L. Conant Prize Selection Committee

General Description

Principal Activities

Annually make recommendations to the Executive Committee of the AMS Council about the winner of the Levi L. Conant Prize, for the best expository paper published in either the Notices or the Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society during the preceding five years. 

Statement on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
(as adopted by the April 2019 Council)

The American Mathematical Society is committed to promoting and facilitating equity, diversity and inclusion throughout the mathematical sciences. For its own long-term prosperity as well as that of the public at large, our discipline must connect with and appropriately incorporate all sectors of society. We reaffirm the pledge in the AMS Mission Statement to "advance the status of the profession of mathematics, encouraging and facilitating full participation of all individuals," and urge all members to conduct their professional activities with this goal in mind.

Miscellaneous Information

The business of this committee can be done by email or videoconference. When a new chair is needed, the second-year member is usually appointed to allow for the possibility of serving in the subsequent year either as chair or as consultant to the new chair.

Note to the Chair

For the purpose of archiving the committee activities, the Secretary maintains a central file system for archiving committee records. Committee Chairs are asked to submit committee records on yearly basis. Chairs can submit material at their discretion, and some materials that they may wish to provide are meeting minutes, agenda, and emails. Confidential material should be noted, so that it can be handled in a confidential manner.
