Following a generous donation of Zemánek's family, the annual Zemánek's Prize was founded by the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IM PAN) in March 2018, in order to encourage the research in functional analysis, operator theory and related topics. The Prize is establi- shed to promote young mathematicians, under 35 years of age, who made important contributions to the field. The awarding ceremony will take place at IM PAN, Warsaw, in Fall 2022. More detailed information about the Prize can be found on this webpage (link).
