Three former Clay Research Fellows, Artur Avila, Manjul Bhargava, and Maryam Mirzakhani have been awarded Fields Medals at the 2014 International Congress of Mathematicians.

The Clay Mathematics Institute announces that the 2014 Clay Research Awards have been made to Maryam Mirzakhani and Peter Scholze.

The 2014 Ramanujan Prize has been awarded to Miguel Walsh of the University of Oxford for his outstanding contributions to Ergodic Theory and Number Theory, including a proof of the norm convergence of multiple polynomial or nilpotent ergodic averages, a long-standing problem

This new volume in the CMI Monographs series gives a complete proof of the geometrization conjecture, which describes all compact 3-manifolds in terms of geometric pieces, i.e., 3-manifolds with locally homogeneous metrics of finite volume.

During his long mathematical career, Dan Quillen kept a set of detailed notes which give a day-to-day record of his mathematical research. His notebooks have been digitised in a project funded by CMI and made available to the mathematics community on the CMI website.

The CMI is running four Research Schools this summer in collaboration with the London Mathematical Society.

David Platt of the Heilbronn Institute at the University of Bristol won the Gold Award in the Mathematics section of the 2014 'SET for Britain' poster competition at the House of Commons.

The Clay Mathematics Institute is pleased to announce that June Huh, Miguel Walsh and Alex Wright have been appointed Clay Research Fellows.

**Denis Auroux**, Professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and **Ivan Corwin,** Clay Research Fellow and Associate Professor at Columbia University, have been appointed to the Poincaré Chair for the academic year 2014/15.

Clay Research Fellow Ivan Corwin has been awarded the prestigious Rollo Davidson Prize in Probability for 2014.
