“Korean June Huh wins 2022 Fields Medal”
The Fields are given only once every four years and adds prestige through rarity as something more like gold medals at the Olympics. Another award, the Abel Prize, which is awarded by the King of Norway. is modeled more on the Nobel Prize and recognizes mathematicians annually for work over their careers.
Usually, the ceremonies for the Fields Medals and other medals or awards including the Abacus Medals take place as part of the International Congress of Mathematics, a quadrennial gathering of mathematicians. This year’s congress was to be held in St. Petersburg, Russia, but after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the leadership of the IMU decided to hold the congress as an online event outside Russia. The awards ceremony was still held in person but was moved to Helsinki.
