LMS Prizes 2017 call for nominations

Written by Web News Editor on . Posted in Latest call-outs to members

The London Mathematical Society welcomes nominations for the 2017 prizes, to recognise and celebrate achievements in and contributions to mathematics.  Closing date for nominations is Tuesday 24 January 2017.

In 2017, the LMS Council expects to award:

  • The Pólya Prize is awarded in recognition of outstanding creativity in, imaginative exposition of, or distinguished contribution to, mathematics within the United Kingdom.
  • The Shephard Prize is awarded to a mathematician or mathematicians for making a contribution to mathematics with a strong intuitive component which can be explained to those with little or no knowledge of university mathematics, though the work itself may involve more advanced ideas.
  • The Senior Whitehead Prize - grounds for the award may include work in, influence on or service to mathematics, or recognition of lecturing gifts in the field of mathematics
  • The Naylor Prize and Lectureship in Applied Mathematics - grounds for the award may include work in, and influence on, and contributions to applied mathematics and/or the applications of mathematics, and lecturing gifts.
  • The Senior Anne Bennett Prize - grounds for the award are work in, influence on or service to mathematics, particularly in relation to advancing the careers of women in mathematics.
  • The Whitehead Prizes - for work in and influence on mathematics.
  • The Berwick Prize is awarded to the author(s) of a definite piece of research actually published by the Society during the eight years ending on 31 December 2016.

For full details and nomination forms, please visit the LMS website http://www.lms.ac.uk/content/nominations-lms-prizes.

The LMS is keen to increase the number of nominations it receives and, in particular, the number of nominations for women, which are disproportionately low each year. The prize regulations refer to the concept of ‘academic age’ — rather than date of birth — in order to take account more fully of broken career patterns. The Society is also keen to receive nominations from a wide spread of university departments.
