The highest French scientific distinction, the CNRS Gold Medal was awarded this year to the physicists Alain Brillet and Thibault Damour, for their major contributions to the detection and analysis of gravitational waves. They received this prize during a ceremony at the Collège de France on December 14 , 2017. The two physicists succeed to the mathematician Claire Voisin, winner of the 2016 Gold Medal.
Several colleagues were awarded Prizes by the Frenche Academy of Sciences. Congratulations!

A Professor at the School of Mathematics at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS) in Princeton, New Jersey, since 2012, Vladimir Voevodsky worked on the homotopy theory of schemes, algebraic K-theory, and interrelations between algebraic geometry, and algebraic topology.
He was awarded the 2002 Fields Medal “especially for his work on motivic cohomology and homotopy theory for algebraic varieties and his proof of the Milnor conjecture.”
