Voir la version française


The Société Mathématique de France, the SMAI* and the SFdS**, in association with the Epijournal de Géométrie Algébrique, have decided to create the "Jean-Pierre Demailly Prize for Open Science in Mathematics". This biennial prize, to be awarded for the first time in 2024, will recognize a project that contributes to open science in mathematics, whether in scientific publishing, collaboration between mathematicians, or free software in mathematics. The prize aims to further highlight the importance of these issues, as well as emphasizing contributions for the benefit of the scientific community as a whole, rather than individual successes.
