Call for Nomination

Martin Kruskal Lecture

The SIAM Activity Group on Nonlinear Waves and Coherent Structures (SIAG/NWCS) will award the Martin Kruskal Lecture at the SIAM Conference on Nonlinear Waves and Coherent Structures (NWCS16), to be held August 8-11, 2016, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The Martin Kruskal Lecture, established in 2011, is awarded every two years to an individual for a notable body of mathematics and contributions in the field of nonlinear waves and coherent structures.


A candidate's work must be a significant research contribution to the mathematical theory of nonlinear waves and coherent structures. The term “nonlinear waves” is broadly interpreted in the spirit of the NWCS conferences.


Nominations should be sent to by December 31, 2015.  Attach (1) a letter of nomination outlining the major achievements of the candidate regarding his/her work in NWCS, (2) a CV of the candidate, (3) letters of support from two or three (but no more than three) experts.  Letters should be addressed as below.
