The Abel Conference is an annual conference series that honors the Abel Prize Laureates. It is a collaboration between the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters and the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications. 

The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters has named Yakov G. Sinai the 2014 recipient of the Abel Prize "for his fundamental contributions to dynamical systems, ergodic theory, and mathematical physics."

The prize carries a monetary award of approximately one million U.S. dollars.

Sinai, a professor of mathematical physics at Princeton University since 1993, has written more than 250 research papers and has supervised more than 50 Ph.D. students. In addition to the Abel Prize, over the course of his career, Sinai has received the Leroy P. Steele Prize for Lifetime Achievement (2013), the Dobrushin International Prize from the Institute of Information Transmission of the Russian Academy of Sciences (2009), the Henri Poincaré Prize from the International Association of Mathematical Physics (2009), the Nemmers Prize in Mathematics (2002), and the Wolf Prize in Mathematics (1997).
