Call for nominations for the fifth Stephen Smale Prize
The fifth Stephen Smale Prize will be awarded at the Foundations of Computational Mathematics (FoCM) conference that will be held in Paris, France, June 12-21, 2023. 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, that is, removed typically by at most ten years from his or her (first) doctoral degree by the first day of the FoCM meeting (June 12, 2023). Eligible candidates should be nominated by email to the chair of FoCM, Albert Cohen (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than September 11, 2022. Each nomination (self-nominations excluded) should be accompanied by a brief supporting letter, the nominee’s CV and should include at least three letters of recommendation. The recipient of the prize will be expected to give a plenary lecture at the conference. A written version of this lecture (tagged as the Smale Prize Lecture) will be included in the volume of plenary talks.
