Clay Lectures

Organizers of conferences and similar events can nominate a highly distinguished mathematician to attend to deliver a Clay Lecture, which might be either a designated plenary lecture within the conference program or a special lecture delivered to a wider audience.

The funding available would be in the region of $10,000, to cover travel and accommodation expenses, an honorarium, and other items to enhance the event.
