Hannan Medal


Nominations will open in early 2020 for the 2021 award in pure mathematics


Hannan Medal

The Hannan Medal recognises research in any of the fields of statistical science, pure mathematics, applied mathematics and computational mathematics and is made in one of those three areas in turn at two-yearly intervals. It honours the contribution to time series analysis of the late Professor E J Hannan, FAA, Professor of Statistics at the Research School of Social Sciences of the Australian National University.

The award is made for research carried out mainly in Australia. Work carried out through a candidate’s entire career is taken into consideration but special weight is given to recent research.

NB: Candidates may be put forward for more than one award. If a proposed candidate is already the recipient of an Academy award, the second award must be for a distinct, additional, body of work undertaken since the first award, and/or work in a different field.
