E. H. Moore Research Article Prize Selection Committee

General Description

Principal Activities

The Committee reports to the Executive Committee acting for the Council at the Fall ECBT in Executive Session. The Committee nominates a recipient for an “E. H. Moore Research Article Prize” every three years for an outstanding research paper to have appeared in one of the AMS primary research journals (namely, the Journal, Proceedings, and Transactions of the AMS, the AMS Memoirs, Mathematics of Computation, Electronic Journal of Conformal Geometry and Dynamics, and Electronic Journal of Representation Theory) during the six calendar years ending 31 December, a full year before the meeting in which the prize is to be awarded. The prize amount is the AMS standard prize amount, equal to that of such AMS research prize awards as the Cole and Steele Prizes. Insofar as possible, for the selection of each award it shall include someone with research specialty in each of Algebra, Analysis, Applied Mathematics, Geometry/Topology, and either Discrete Mathematics or Logic.

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.
