THE
FIELDS INSTITUTE FOR RESEARCH IN MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES

Coxeter,
Distinguished and Statistical Science Lecture Series



Coxeter and Distinguished Lecture
Series
The
Coxeter and Distinguished Lecture Series bring
a leading international mathematician in the field of the
thematic program of the Institute
to give a series of three lectures. The first of the lectures
is intended for a general mathematical audience and the remaining
lectures are intended to highlight some recent important developments
in the field of the program. The speaker is selected by the
Institute's Scientific Advisory Panel.
The Fields Institute Scientific Advisory Panel will designate
a recipient on the basis of outstanding contributions to the
advancement of the mathematical sciences, with excellence
in research and strong presentation skills as the main selection
criteria. The special lectures are usually associated with
a thematic program. Nominations should include supporting
documentation and contact information on the candidate, and
should be sent to the director.
For
more detail on both these programs, see the thematic
program proposals web page.
Nominations:
Nominations are considered at the fall and spring meetings of
the Scientific
Advisory Panel (SAP), and should be sent by September 15
or March 15 to:
