Any book first published in the past 9 years may be considered for the book award. Any article published in the past 6 years may be considered for the article award. Nominations should be submitted to Justin Moore (justin@math. cornell.edu), Chair of the ASL Committee on Prizes and Awards. The deadline for nominations for the 2019 Prizes is November 1, 2019.
