The International Conferences on Representations of Algebras (ICRA) Award 2012 was given to

Jan Stovicek

for his key contributions to infinite dimensional tilting theory and to approximation theory as well as for his work on representability of functors and existence of adjoints in triangulated categories.

ICRA Award Information

The Scientific Advisory Committee of the ICRA decided at the meeting in Patzcuaro (Mexico), August 17, 2004, to establish the

International Conferences on Representations of Algebras (ICRA) Award

The ICRA Award will be awarded at each session of ICRA for outstanding work by young mathematicians in the field of Representations of Finite Dimensional Algebras. Motivation to create the award builds on the following aims:

The award consists of a certificate containing a citation. The award will be announced at the Opening Ceremony of each session of ICRA and awarded at the banquet of the Conference. If present, the recipient would be expected to give a plenary talk. Award and citation will be published in the Proceedings of ICRA and widely communicated, for example, to the Notices of the AMS and the Newsletter of the London Mathematical Society.

Eligibility: Any young mathematician, not older than 35 years of age (except to allow for a broken career), is eligible for nomination.

Selection Committee and Decision: At the preceding session of ICRA the Scientific Advisory Committee will set up a Selection Committee, consisting of five people, and chaired by the Chairman of the following session. On the basis of the nominations received, the Selection Committee will propose up to two candidates for an award to the Scientific Advisory Committee. For acceptance the proposal must receive at least two third of the votes of the Scientific Advisory Committee.

The members of the selcetion committee for 2012 were W. Crawley-Boevey, B. Keller, H. Krause (Chair), I. Reiten and K. Yamagata.

Nomination Procedure: Nominations are to be based on research results obtained or surfaced since the previous ICRA session. Nominations are to be made by the members of the Scientific Advisory Committee to the Chairman of the Selection Committee together with documentation and proposal for the citation. The Chairman will pass the information to the Selection Committee which decides its proposal before the current session of ICRA.
