The

**Seki-Takakazu Prize**is awarded by the Mathematical Society of Japan for distinguished contributions to the mathematical community over a sustained period. It was first awarded in 1995.**1995**Toyosaburo Taniguchi... in recognition of his financial support for the Taniguchi International Workshop over 40 years.

**1996**Friedrich Hirzebruch... who has invited many Japanese mathematicians to the University of Bonn and the Max-Planck Institute.

**2006**The Japan-U.S. Mathematics Institute... was founded in 1988 by the Johns Hopkins Mathematics Department, with the cooperation of the Office of the President of Johns Hopkins University and members of the mathematical community of Japan. JAMI exists to further cooperation between the two countries in mathematical research through broadly based programs in Mathematics. It has organized 18 annual programs in widely ranging fields of mathematics, and the current program is "Recent Developments in Higher Dimensional Algebraic Geometry".
