## CRM-Fields-PIMS Prize

The Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM), the Fields Institute, and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) invite nominations for the CRM-Fields-PIMS Prize in the fall of each year. This is the premier prize for research awarded jointly by the three Canadian mathematics institutes. The winner, selected by a committee appointed by the three institutes, receives a monetary award, and an invitation to present a lecture at each institute within one year after the award is announced.

The prize recognizes exceptional achievement in the mathematical sciences. It was established by the Centre de recherches mathématiques and the Fields Institute as the CRM-Fields prize in 1994. In 2005, PIMS became an equal partner. The name changed to the CRM-Fields-PIMS prize, the award level increased, and the terms of reference were revised.

The winner's research should have been conducted primarily in Canada or in affiliation with a Canadian university. The main selection criterion is outstanding contribution to the advancement of research.

## UBC/PIMS Mathematical Sciences Young Faculty Award

This prize was created by two founding donors, Anton Kuipers and Darrell Duffie, to recognize UBC researchers for their leading edge work in mathematics or its applications in the sciences.

Eligibility: Any UBC faculty member who is within 10 years of their PhD on January 1 of the year of nomination. The nomination of an unsuccessful candidate who continues to satisfy the eligibility criterion will remain valid for one further year. However, renewal of nominations, with an updated CV and publication list, and if desired, new letters of support, is strongly encouraged.

### Previous Recipients
