The Japanese Society for Mathematical Biology awards three prizes, the Akira Okubo Prize, the JSMB Young Scholar Award and the Poster Award at annual meetings.

Akira Okubo Prize

The Akira Okubo Fund was established in memory of Akira Okubo, who made major contributions to many fields, including mathematical ecology and oceanography. Okubo was widely recognized for his scientific work, as well as for his exceptional humanity.

The objective of the Akira Okubo Prize is to honor a living scientist for outstanding and innovative theoretical work, for establishing superb conceptual ideas, for solving tough theoretical problems, and/or for uniting theory and data to advance a biological subject.

The Akira Okubo prize is jointed administered by the Society for Mathematical Biology and the Japanese Society for Mathematical Biology.

Additional details, including how to nominate individuals, is available at Akira Okubo Prize 2011 page.
