CAIMS-Fields Industrial Mathematics Prize

The CAIMS-Fields annual industrial mathematics prize is to be awarded to a researcher in recognition of exceptional research in any branch of industrial mathematics, interpreted broadly. The nominee’s research should have been conducted primarily in Canada. This Prize is a high honour to bestow upon an individual, and acknowledges industrial mathematics as a fundamental and vibrant discipline within the research culture of Canada.

The award will consist of a cash prize of $1,000 and a commemorative plaque that will be presented at the CAIMS Annual Meeting. The recipient will be invited to deliver a lecture at the CAIMS Annual Meeting in the year of the award. A travel allowance will be provided.

Nominations shall consist of:
  1. a cover letter explaining the basis of the nomination,
  2. up to three additional letters of support.
  3. a curriculum vitae,
  4. a publication list if not included in the CV.

Unsuccessful nominations which continue to meet the eligibility criteria will be automatically considered for a second year.

To submit an application for this award, go to Open Nominations page.

The Fields Institute began co-sponsoring this prize in 2015. The prize was formerly known as the CAIMS-Mprime Industrial Mathematics Prize, during which time Mprime was the co-sponsor.
