      Awards and Honors


      Call for Nominations: Peter Henrici Prize Joanna Littleton - littleton@siam.org

      Call for Nominations: Peter Henrici Prize (ETHZ/SIAM)
      http://www.siam.org/prizes/henrici.htm

      The Peter Henrici Prize is awarded jointly by the Eidgenossische Technische
      Hochschule Zurich (ETHZ) and the Society for Industrial and Applied
      Mathematics (SIAM). The prize is awarded for original contributions to
      applied analysis and numerical analysis and/or for exposition appropriate for
      applied mathematics and scientific computing. The prize is intended to
      recognize broad and extended contributions to these subjects, rather than a
      single outstanding work.

      The next award will be presented at the Fifth International Congress on
      Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM 2003) in Sydney, Australia, 7-11
      July 2003.

      Eligibility
      There are no restrictions on eligibility beyond those specified above.

      Description of the Award
      The award is to include a certificate containing the citation and a cash
      prize of $2500 plus reasonable travel costs to attend the prize ceremony.

      Nominations may be made by anyone, including members of the selection
      committee. It is the responsibility of the nominator to provide all relevant
      information to the selection committee, including a resume and any letter(s)
