  CWI - Lex Schrijver received the Dantzig prize for his complete work in optimization on Monday 18 August 2003 during the International Symposium on Mathematical Programming (ISMP) 2003 in Copenhagen. Furthermore, he and Bert Gerards both received the Fulkerson prize at the same conference. The Dantzig prize is the highest award in mathematical optimization, awarded by the Mathematical Programming Society and SIAM. Schrijver received the prize for 'deep and fundamental research contributions to discrete optimization (...)'. 'Characterized by insights that are both broad and deep, and by a continual pursuit of simplification and unity, Schrijver's work is scholarship at its best.' The Fulkerson prize is awarded for outstanding papers in the area of discrete mathematics by the MPS and AMS. Bert Gerards won his Fulkerson prize for an article with Geelen and Kapoor in the Journal of Combinatorial Theory (B); Schrijver for his article in the same magazine. Both the Dantzig and Fulkerson prize are awarded every three years.
