The AMS Guidelines for Society and Commission Awards. Section H: Policy on Named Conferences/Symposia/Sessions and Special Collections of AMS Journals states:
"Recognition of scientists in the fields served by the AMS, living or deceased, in the form of a named conference or symposium … is an honor reserved for only the most outstanding of our colleagues. It should be awarded only to those individuals who are completing a career, or who have recently died having completed a career, of significant achievements in their field and whose contributions would make them worthy of consideration for Honorary Member of AMS.
Proposals for either a named conference/symposium…, including the nature of the content for the conference/symposium… that justifies its naming, should be submitted to the STAC Commissioner..."
