Call for nominations: 2017 AWM-AMS Noether Lecture

Nomination deadline: October 15, 2015

The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) established the Noether Lecture to honor women who have made fundamental and sustained contributions to the mathematical sciences. These one-hour expository lectures are presented at the Joint Mathematics Meetings each January. Emmy Noether was one of the great mathematicians of her time, someone who worked and struggled for what she loved and believed in. Her life and work remain a tremendous inspiration. Starting in 2015 the lecture is jointly sponsored by the American Mathematical Society and the AWM and has been renamed the AWM-AMS Noether Lecture.

The letter of nomination should include a one page outline of the nominee’s contribution to mathematics, giving four of her most important papers and other relevant information. The selection committee will take into account nominations for a three-year period after they are received; the committee may seek out and consider other excellent candidates. Nominations should be submitted as one PDF file via MathPrograms.org at https://www.mathprograms.org/db/programs/379.

Welcome!

Welcome to the IMS Bulletin website! We are developing the way we communicate news and information more effectively with members. The print Bulletin is still with us (free with IMS membership), and still available as a PDF to download, but in addition, we are placing some of the news, columns and articles on this blog site, which will allow you the opportunity to interact more. We are always keen to hear from IMS members, and encourage you to write articles and reports that other IMS members would find interesting. Contact the IMS Bulletin at bulletin@imstat.org

What is “Open Forum”?

In the Open Forum, any IMS member can propose a topic for discussion. Email your subject and an opening paragraph (to bulletin@imstat.org) and we'll post it to start off the discussion. Other readers can join in the debate by commenting on the post. Search other Open Forum posts by using the Open Forum category link below. Start a discussion today!
