2016 Fields Medal
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.
A candidate’s 40th birthday must not occur before January 1st of the year of the Congress at which the Fields Medals are awarded. The Fields Medal Committee is chosen by the Executive Committee of the International Mathematical Union and is normally chaired by the IMU President. The Committee is asked to choose at least two, with a strong preference for four, Fields Medalists representing a diversity of mathematical fields.
