Description

The Fields Medal is awarded every four years on the occasion of the International Congress of Mathematicians to recognize outstanding mathematical achievement for existing work and for the promise of future achievement. The Fields Medal is the highest academic award for mathematicians and is often referred as the “Nobel Prize” for mathematics.

The next competition is scheduled in 2016.
