Call for Nominations

The Shanmugha Arts, Science, Technology, Research Academy (SASTRA), based in the state of Tamil Nadu in South India, has instituted the SASTRA Ramanujan Prize of $10,000 to be given annually to a mathematician not exceeding the age of 32 for outstanding contributions in an area of mathematics influenced by the late Indian mathematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan. The age limit has been set at 32 because Ramanujan achieved so much in his brief life of 32 years. The prize will be awarded each year at an international conference conducted by SASTRA in Kumbakonam, Ramanujan's hometown, around Ramanujan's birthday, December 22.

The First SASTRA Ramanujan Prizes were awarded on Dec 20, 2005.

Nominations are now sought for the 2017 SASTRA Ramanujan Prize. The winner will be invited to give a talk at the SASTRA conference Dec 21-22, 2017, and receive the prize. Nominations for the 2017 SASTRA Ramanujan Prize must be made by July 31, 2017. A panel of experts will select the winner from the nominations. The announcement of the winner is expected around September 30. The person making the nomination must assemble the vita of the nominee, some selected papers, and three letters supporting the nomination and send these to
