Lyapunov Award

In conjunction with the odd-year ASME International Conference on Multibody Systems, Nonlinear Dynamics and Control, organized as part of the ASME IDETC/CIE meetings, the TC-MSND presents the Lyapunov award in recognition of lifelong contributions to the field of nonlinear dynamics. The award emphasizes impact of research contributions, education and training of researchers and/or practitioners, and overall leadership in advancing the corresponding field.

A call for nominations is disseminated broadly (and also made available through a link on this page) during the spring and summer of the preceding year. Nominations should include 1) a nomination letter describing the field of, and the impact of the nominee, 2) a curriculum vitae, and 3) up to five letters of support. All nomination materials must be submitted in electronic (pdf) format.
