2021 Research Prizes
The CMS Research Committee is inviting nominations for three prize lectureships. These prize lectureships are intended to recognize members of the Canadian mathematical community.
The Coxeter-James Prize recognizes young mathematicians who have made outstanding contributions to mathematical research. The recipient shall be a member of the Canadian mathematical community. Nominations may be made up to ten years from the candidate’s Ph.D. A nomination can be updated and will remain active for a second year unless the original nomination is made in the tenth year from the candidate’s Ph.D. The selected candidate will deliver the prize lecture at the 2021 Winter Meeting.
Jeffery Williams Prize
The Jeffery-Williams Prize recognizes mathematicians who have made outstanding and sustained contributions to mathematical research. The recipient shall be a member of the Canadian mathematical community. A nomination can be updated and will remain active for three years. The prize lecture will be delivered at the 2021 Summer Meeting.
The Krieger-Nelson Prize recognizes outstanding research by a female mathematician. The recipient shall be a member of the Canadian mathematical community. A nomination can be updated and will remain active for two years. The selected candidate will deliver the prize lecture at the 2021 Summer Meeting.
CMS aims to promote and celebrate diversity in the broadest sense. We strongly encourage department chairs and nominating committees to put forward nominations for outstanding colleagues for research in the mathematical sciences regardless of race, gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation. A candidate can be nominated for more than one research prize in the applicable categories; several candidates from the same institution can be nominated for the same research prize.
CMS research prizes are gender-neutral, except for the Krieger-Nelson prize, which is awarded to women only. Nominations of eligible women for the general research prizes in addition to the Krieger-Nelson Prize are strongly encouraged.
The Research Committee of the CMS reserves the right to consider a nomination for one of the three research prizes for any other, applicable prize.
The deadline for nominations, including at least three letters of reference, is September 30, 2020. Nomination letters should list the chosen referees and include a recent curriculum vitae for the nominee. Some arms-length referees are strongly encouraged. Nominations and the reference letters from the chosen referees should be submitted electronically, preferably in PDF format, to the corresponding email address and no later than September 30, 2020:
