BANGALORE, India, November 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

- Honors ground-breaking research in science, mathematics and humanities

The Infosys Science Foundation today announced the winners of the Infosys Prize 2012 for their outstanding research contributions across six categories: Engineering & Computer Science, Humanities, Life Sciences, Mathematics, Physical Sciences, and Social Sciences. Now in its fourth year, the Infosys Prize ranks among the highest monetary awards in India that recognizes scientific research.

Infosys Science Foundation introduced a new category of Humanities earlier this year to expand the scope of the prize which has traditionally acknowledged research in the physical, biological and social sciences, as well as mathematics, engineering and computer sciences. Two winners were announced in this category for their contributions in the fields of History and Literary Studies.

In the words of Prof. Amartya Sen, jury chair for the Humanities category, "The Humanities as a cluster of subjects - Literary Studies, Philosophy, History, Art, and Legal Theory - complement the traditional sciences and have an important role in broadening human lives, like science has. Having a prize in Humanities will add incentive for younger people in the country to pursue these subjects. I am delighted that the Infosys Science Foundation is moving in this direction."
