Call for nominations for the Richard-von-Mises Prize of the International Association of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics (GAMM) 2020

Since 1989, the Richard-von-Mises Prize is awarded every year by GAMM to a scientist for exceptional scientific achievements in the field of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics.

Traditionally, GAMM will present the prize during the opening ceremony of the GAMM Annual Meeting and the prize winner will present her/his research in a plenary talk.

The aim of the prize is to reward and encourage young scientists whose research represents a major advancement in the field of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics. The price includes a certificate, a biennial free membership in the GAMM e.V. and a donation of 2000 Euro. To accommodate the width of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, the prize committee may decide to split the prize (and therefore the prize money) in equal parts to two persons.

The winner should not be older than 36 years. Also he should neither hold a lifetime professorship nor have a call on such a position the time of nomination. Deviations from this time frame as a consequence of inactive periods due to sickness or maternity leaves will be taken into account. The GAMM aims at a well-balanced representation of the two fields Applied Mathematics and Mechanics among the Richard-von-Mises award winners as well as at a well-balanced gender distribution.

Nominations can be made by university professors or academic persons in similar positions. Self nomination is accepted.

Nominations should contain a justification letter by the nominating persons and the following material concerning the nominee:

  • curriculum vitae,
  • list of publications,
  • copies of the most important articles (at most 4).

Nominations should be sent to the president of GAMM, Prof. Dr. Heike Faßbender, preferably in electronic form.

The deadline for nomination is 30. September 2019.
