The Laureates

Each year the recipients of the most prestigious awards in mathematics and computer science, the Abel Prize, ACM A.M. Turing Award, ACM Prize in Computing, Fields Medal, IMU Abacus Medal and Nevanlinna Prize are invited to participate in the Forum. In 2012, the photographer Peter Badge began a project to capture all available laureates of the disciplines, the "Masters of Abstraction." Seeing that not every laureate in the history of these awards was able to be photographed, an image of the prize is included by those select individuals in order to ensure that the collection is comprehensive.
