The IMA Leslie Fox Prize for Numerical Analysis is a biennial prize established in 1985 by the IMA in honour of mathematician Leslie Fox (1918-1992). Leslie Fox founded the Oxford University Computing Laboratory in 1957 and was the Professor of Numerical Analysis at Oxford from 1963 to 1983. The prize honours “young numerical analysts worldwide” (any person who is less than 31 years old).

Following the call for papers, submissions are reviewed by the Committee who then invite shortlisted candidates to give lectures at the IMA Leslie Fox Prize meeting. First Prize and Second Prizes are awarded based on “mathematical and algorithmic brilliance in tandem with presentational skills.”
