Call for nominations for the Fourth Stephen Smale Prize

Category: Prizes or Awards / Postdocs/early career, Mathematical scientists/faculty, Institutions and Programs

The fourth Stephen Smale Prize will be awarded at the Foundations of Computational Mathematics (FoCM) meeting in Vancouver, Canada June 15-24, 2020. The goal of the Smale Prize is to recognize major achievements in furthering 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 a candidate must be in his or her early to mid-career, meaning, typically, removed by at most ten years from his or her (first) doctoral degree by the first day of the FoCM meeting (June 15, 2020). Eligible candidates should be nominated by email to the secretary of FoCM, Michael Singer,, no later than OCTOBER 15, 2019. Each nomination (self-nominations excluded) should be accompanied by a brief supporting letter, the nominee's CV and include at least three letters of recommendation. The recipient of the prize will be expected to give a lecture at the meeting. A written version of this lecture (tagged as the Smale Prize Lecture) will be included in the volume of plenary talks.
