Call for Nominations: 2016 Shoenfield Prizes for outstanding expository writing in logic

The ASL invites nominations for the Shoenfield Prizes for outstanding expository writing in the field of logic. There are two Shoenfield prizes, one for books and one for expository articles, each to be awarded simultaneously every three years; the Shoenfield Prizes were first awarded in 2007. 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.

The Shoenfield prizes were established by the ASL to honor the late Joseph R. Shoenfield for his many outstanding contributions to logic and to the ASL. Generations of logicians have especially valued Shoenfield's expository gifts, and his writings provide models of lucidity and elegance. The fund on which the Prize is based is administered by the ASL and the award is made by the Association upon the recommendation of the ASL Committee on Prizes and Awards.

Nominations should be submitted to Simon Thomas (), Chair of the ASL Committee on Prizes and Awards. The deadline for nominations for the 2016 Prizes is November 1, 2016. For more information, see http://www.aslonline.org/info-prizes.html
