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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org describing the work of the nominee in adequate detail. Two supporting letters should also be arranged.
