Call for Nominations: The Euler, Hall, Kirkman, and Stanton Medals and Honorary Fellows
Until 31 December 2023, nominations are invited for the 2023 Medals of the ICA, and for
Honorary Fellowship in the ICA. A nomination for a medal or for Honorary Fellowship is to
be made by at least two nominators. Each nominator must be an Associate Fellow, Fellow, or
Honorary Fellow of the ICA. Nominees must not be members of the ICA Council as of the
closing date of nominations; nominees for the Euler, Hall, and Kirkman medals must not be
Honorary Fellows. Normally, nominees must also meet the eligibility requirements given
below, although documented career interruptions are taken into account when assessing
Each nomination must include a complete curriculum vitae, list of publications, and a letter of
support. The letter of support must provide details of the extent and importance of the
nominee's contributions in relation to the selection criteria, and include a summary of up to
200 words understandable to the broad membership of the ICA. Quotes from nomination
letters may be used without attribution in citations, which may appear in the Bulletin of the
ICA and in press releases.
Euler Medals recognize distinguished lifetime career contributions to combinatorial
research by Fellows of the ICA, including those who remain active in research. Normally, at
most one medal per year is awarded.
Hall Medals recognize extensive quality research with substantial international impact by
Fellows or Associate Fellows of the ICA in mid-career. Recipients must have earned their
doctoral degree in 2005 or later. At most two medals per year are awarded.
Kirkman Medals recognize excellent research by Fellows or Associate Fellows of the ICA
early in their research career, as evidenced by an excellent body of published research. A
recipient of a 2023 medal must have earned their doctoral degree in 2020 or later. At most
two medals per year are awarded.
Stanton Medals honour significant lifetime contributions to promoting the discipline of
combinatorics through advocacy, outreach, service, teaching and/or mentoring. Letters of
nomination should establish the significance, duration, and impact of the nominee's
contributions other than research. At most one medal per year is to be awarded, typically to a
Fellow of the ICA.
Honorary Fellowship recognizes an individual who has made pre-eminent contributions to
combinatorics or its applications. Nominees need not be Fellows of the ICA. The number of
living Honorary Fellows at any time shall not exceed ten.
