ICM Emmy Noether Lecture


The ICM Emmy Noether Lecture (formally not an award) honours women who have made fundamental and sustained contributions to the mathematical sciences. It is sponsored by the International Mathematical Union and takes place at each International Congress.

It should not be confused with the Association for Women in Mathematics/American Mathematical Society sponsored Noether lectures whose details can be found at THIS LINK.
