Nominations are currently closed.
Nominations for the Krieger-Nelson Prize 2022 will be accepted beginning March 1.

The prize lecture will be delivered at the Summer Meeting. The recipient shall be a member of the Canadian mathematical community. A nomination can be updated and will remain active for two years.

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 is indicated above. Nominations and reference letters should be submitted electronically, preferably in PDF format, by the appropriate deadline, to knprize@cms.math.ca.

Nominators should ask at least three referees to submit letters directly to the CMS (knprize@cms.math.ca) by the deadline. Some arm’s length referees are strongly encouraged. Nomination letters should list the chosen referees, and should include a recent curriculum vitae for the nominee, if available.
