To ensure fair, equitable and high-standard requirements of the thesis review process, all submissions are subject to two rounds of review:
(I) Firstly, a professional review committee conducts a preliminary review. For each thesis, 2-3 renowned mathematicians are assigned to conduct a correspondence review. This round of review ends either in end-November each year (in the case of a non-Award year), or in late April of an Award year.
(II) Based on the scores from the correspondence review, the theses are selected for the second round review. A comprehensive review committee conducts a final review, and selects the final list of winners. This round of review ends either in December each year (in the case of a non-Award year), or in May (in the case of an Award year).
