CfNominations: Sacks Prize - Dissertation Prize by the ASL, Deadline: September 30, 2023

2023 Sacks Prize. The ASL invites nominations for the 2023 Sacks Prize for the most outstanding doctoral dissertation in mathematical logic. 

Nominations must be received by September 30, 2023. The Sacks Prize was established to honor the late Professor Gerald Sacks of MIT and Harvard for his unique contribution to mathematical logic, particularly as adviser to a large number of excellent Ph.D. students. The Prize was first awarded in 1994 and became an ASL Prize in 1999. The Fund on which the Prize is based is now administered by the ASL and the selection of the recipient is made by the ASL Committee on Prizes and Awards. The Sacks Prize will consist of a cash award plus five years free membership in the ASL. For general information about the Prize, visit http://aslonline.org/other-information/prizes-and-awards/.
