To recognize outstanding contributions in lattice field theory.

The prize is given annually and will consist of a certificate citing the contributions of the recipient, a modest monetary award, and an invitation to present the cited work in a short plenary talk at the next International Symposium on Lattice Field Theory in Wuhan, China.

Nominations will be reviewed in the year received and remain under consideration for two additional years.  For second year and third year re-considerations augmented information can be submitted to the Selection Committee. Nominations of scientists from all nations are solicited. Self-nominations will not be considered. Recipients are not eligible for a second award.

For nominations submitted for the 2019 award, nominees must have received a PhD (or equivalent) after December 31, 2011 (with suitable adjustment in cases with career breaks). As stated above, nominations will be reviewed in the year received and remain under consideration for two additional years.
