Kurt Goedel Colloquium 2008 Announcement

Conference honoring the winners of the Kurt Goedel Centenary Research 
Prize Fellowships Program

The Kurt Goedel Society is proud to announce the conference honoring 
the winners of the International Research Fellowship Prize Program 
commemorating Kurt Goedel's 100th birthday. The competition was 
organized by the Kurt Goedel Society with support from the John 
Templeton Foundation.

The purpose of the fellowships is to support original research in, 
and areas surrounding, the foundations of mathematics. These 
fellowships are intended to carry forward the legacy of Kurt Goedel, 
whose works exemplify deep insights and breakthrough discoveries in 
mathematical logic, with profound impact on the philosophy and 
foundations of mathematics. The selection has been made based upon an 
open, international competition. An International Board of seventeen 
eminent Jurors chaired by Professor Harvey Friedman has overseen the 
process. Applicants were required to submit a curriculum vitae, a 
research paper, and plans for further research. Seventeen finalists 
were chosen from among the applicants and their submitted papers will 
be published in a special issue of the Annals of Pure and Applied 
Logic. From the finalists, five winners in the categories PreDoc, 
PostDoc and Senior were chosen to receive USD 120,000.-, USD 
160,000.- and USD 120,000.-respectively.

We are convinced, that the research of the winners will have 
considerable impact on the field of logic and foundations of 
mathematics forever connected to Kurt Goedel's legacy.
