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.
