IMU-Net 36d: September 2009

Special issue on Call for Nominations for the Ramanujan Prize:
The Ramanujan Prize for Young Mathematicians from Developing Countries

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics
(ICTP) herewith calls for nominations for the 2009 Ramanujan
Prize for Young Mathematicians from Developing Countries.

The Prize is awarded annually to a researcher from a developing
country less than 45 years of age on 31 December of the year of
the award, who has conducted outstanding research in a
developing country. The environment in which the research was
carried out will be taken into account. Researchers working in
any branch of the mathematical sciences are eligible. The Prize
carries a $15,000 cash award and travel and subsistence
allowance to visit ICTP for a meeting where the Prize winner
will be required to deliver a lecture. The Prize will usually be
awarded to one person, but may be shared equally among
recipients who have contributed to the same body of work.

The Prize is funded by the Niels Henrik Abel Memorial Fund. It
is awarded annually by ICTP through a selection committee of
five eminent mathematicians appointed in conjunction with the
International Mathematical Union (IMU). The first prize was
awarded in 2005. The deadline for receipt of nominations is
September 30, 2009.

Please send nominations to describing
the work of the nominee in adequate detail. Two supporting
letters should also be arranged.
