Louis-André Gerard-Varet Prize

 

This prize is in memory of ASSET’s first elected president Louis-André Gerard-Varet, who passed away in January 2001. Louis-André Gérard-Varet was Directeur d'Etudes at EHESS, and Director of GREQAM in Marseille. He was ASSET’s chairman from 1990 to 1997 and its president from 1997 to 1999.

 

ASSET awards the Louis-André Gerard-Varet prize each year to a young author (either a current graduate student or a recent PhD within two years of graduation) of an outstanding paper singled out by the program committee among those submitted to the ASSET annual meeting. In the case of co-authored papers, all authors must be individually eligible.

 

Each year before the conference a list with the authors of the short-listed papers will be made public on the conference web site. The authors of the short-listed papers must attend the annual meeting. The recipient of the Louis-André Gerard-Varet prize will be announced in an awarding ceremony during the conference. She or he will receive 1000 Euros.
