LMS Prizes - call for nominations

The London Mathematical Society would like to invite nominations for the following LMS prizes in 2019, which are intended to recognise and celebrate achievements in and contributions to mathematics:

  • The DE MORGAN MEDAL, which is the Society’s premier award and for which the only grounds are the candidate’s contributions to mathematics.
  • The SENIOR WHITEHEAD PRIZE for work in, influence on or service to mathematics and lecturing gifts.
  • The NAYLOR PRIZE AND LECTURESHIP IN APPLIED MATHEMATICS, for work in, influence on, and contributions to, applied mathematics and/or the applications of mathematics, and lecturing gifts.
  • The WHITEHEAD PRIZES for work in and influence on mathematics. Up to six Whitehead Prizes may be awarded.
  • The BERWICK PRIZE, which is awarded to the author(s) of a definite piece of research published by the Society between 1 January 2011 and 31 December 2018.
  • The ANNE BENNETT PRIZE for work in and influence on mathematics, particularly acting as an inspiration for women mathematicians

The closing date for nominations is Friday 25th January 2019. Any nominations received after that date will be considered in the next prize award round.

Regulations, including information on eligibility, for each of the prizes can be found here.

To nominate a candidate, please complete a nomination form and return it to Katherine Wright, Society Business Officer: prizes@lms.ac.uk. Each nomination should include a short CV and publications list. Nominations for the Berwick Prize should also include the paper for which the prize is nominated.

Nominations made will be considered for two prize award rounds, provided that the nominee(s) remains eligible for the prize.

The Prizes Committee 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.
