The International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation awards prizes for the best post-doc and student presentations at the Society’s tri-annual conferences. The winners are chosen by the Executive committee of the Society from recommendations made by the Session Chairs and the Chair of the Scientific organization committee of the conference.

The post-doc prizes are named after Prof. S. Chandrasekhar and are sponsored by World Scientific. They were instituted in 2010, the centennial year of Professor Chandrasekhar’s birth. There is one prize in each of the four major themes of the conference. The 2010 prize winners are: Drs. Wei Chet Lim (Mathematical and Numerical Relativity); Mark Hannam (Relativistic Astrophysics and Cosmology); Thomas Corbitt (Experimental Gravitation) and Parampreet Singh (Quantum Gravity). The prize carries a certificate, a 3 year membership of the Society and a monetary award of $150.
The student prizes are made possible through generosity of Professor James B. Hartle.
