The CRM-ISM-AMQ prize is awarded annually for an outstanding publication in the Annales Mathématiques du Québec (AMQ). The  prize was created in collaboration between the Centre de recherches mathématiques, the Institut des sciences mathématiques and the AMQ.

Annales mathématiques du Québec

The goal of the Annales mathématiques du Québec (formerly: Annales des sciences mathématiques du Québec) is to be a high level journal publishing articles in all areas of pure mathematics, and sometimes in related fields such as applied mathematics, mathematical physics and computer science.

Papers written in French or English may be submitted via the journal’s webpage, and each published paper will appear with a short abstract in both languages.


The journal was founded in 1977 as Annales des sciences mathématiques du Québec. In 2013 it became a Springer journal under the name of Annales mathématiques du Québec. From 1977 to 2018, the editors-in-chief have respectively been S. Dubuc, R. Cléroux, G. Labelle, I. Assem, C. Levesque, D. Jakobson, O. Cornea. The current editor-in-chief is Iosif Polterovich.

The prize is awarded at the end of each calendar year. To be eligible, the paper must be published in the AMQ during that or the previous year. The winning paper is selected by the Editorial Board; no nominations are required.
