The Ukraine Mathematics Award Program is sponsored by The Shevchenko Scientific Society (USA) and The U.S.-Ukraine Foundation with the support of Ukrainian and Kyiv Mathematical Societies.

UKRAINE MATHEMATICS COMPETITION 2017

The U.S.-Ukraine Foundation and the Shevchenko Scientific Society of America are continuing their sponsorship of a competition for young Ukrainian mathematicians in 2017. The winner of the competition will be awarded a prize of $6,000 plus a gold medal.

The goal of the competition, which began in 2008, is to support young mathematicians who work at research institutions in Ukraine, and to stimulate the interest of young people in pure and applied science. The competition is open to citizens of Ukraine who are employed in educational or research institutions in Ukraine, or who studied in Ukraine and obtained extraordinary results, were 35 years of age or younger on September 1, 2016 (since there was no competition in 2016), and who hold the degree of Kandydat, or D.Sc., in mathematical sciences.

To participate, applicants should send the following documents by e-mail to the executive secretary of the Awards Committee, professor Volodymyr Nekrashevych, nekrash @ math.tamu.edu , using Adobe PDF or PS format:

* A brief description of the results of research which is being submitted for the Mathematics Competition (up to one page, in Ukrainian, with a clearly stated main result, preferably as theorem(s), and a short commentary).

* Curriculum Vitae, including a list of all publications.

* List of publications (no more than three and at least one without co-authors) containing the results submitted for the Mathematics Competition, including computer files of these publications.

* List of important conference where the above results were presented, and type of presentation (plenary session, special session, or other).

* List of proposed reviewers (no more than three).

The Committee will forward the documents to the reviewers proposed by the applicant and possibly to reviewers of its own choosing. Based on the response received from the reviewers, the Committee will consider three of the top candidates and select the winner by a majority vote.

The deadline for submission of the applications for the 2017 Mathematics Competition is September 1, 2017. The results of the competition will be announced by the end of November 2017.

Information about the Mathematics Competition will appear on the web-pages of the Ukrainian and Kyiv Mathematical Societies, the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation and the Shevchenko Scientific Society (USA). Announcements concerning the Mathematics Competition will be published in the Ukrainian Mathematical Journal and other scholarly publications in Ukraine.
