- 2012: Endre Szemerédi, Hungary/USA: "for his fundamental contributions to discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science, and in recognition of the profound and lasting impact of these contributions on additive number theory and ergodic theory"
- 2009: Mikhail Leonidovich Gromov, France: "for his revolutionary contributions to geometry"
- 2008: Jacques Tits, France: "for profound achievements in algebra and in particular for shaping modern group theory"
