The second Stephen Smale Prize will be awarded in the meeting Foundations of Computational Mathematics (FoCM) in Montevideo in December 2014. We hereby call for nominations of candidates.
Nominations (self-nominations excluded) should be sent to FoCM secretary Antonella Zanna at:
Deadline: 24:00 (GMT), March 10, 2014
Summary of prize rules (see for full details):
* 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 10 years of his/her (first) doctoral degree by the first day of the FoCM meeting (Dec 11, 2014). Allowances might be made for atypical life circumstances.
* Each nomination should be accompanied by a brief case for support. The nomination should include at least three letters of recommendation.
* The recipient of the prize is 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.
